Instant Pot Chicken Bacon Ranch Rice #Recipe

Instant Pot Gluten-free Chicken Bacon Ranch Rice Recipe From Val's Kitchen

I have another gluten-free rice dish for you. This one may not be the prettiest, but it is pretty tasty. It mixes together one of my favorite combinations – chicken, bacon and ranch. The dish reheats really well, which is a good part of its appeal for me since my youngest loves it and can bring it to school for lunch. The dish is very filling, as well as very easy to put together. Here’s how I make it.

  1. Still don’t own an instanta pot. I just re-create using a different method. We eat tons of rice and who doesn’t love bacon. Would make a great side dish.

  2. I love seeing all your instant pot recipes! The flavors in this one are some of my family’s favorite. My husband and son would eat this in one sitting. Sounds absolutely delicious!

  3. I absolutely love my instant pot! I have got a whole bunch of recipes I want to try and this one might go right towards the top. I love anything that has to do with bacon.

  4. I love this recipe. It is a complete meal in itself. You had me at bacon and I am sure this will be a winner in my family. Love these quick, easy to prepare and delicious meals!

  5. I just bought an Instant Pot and have been looking for new recipes to try. Can’t wait to make this one. Anything with bacon is a winner at our house! x

  7. I have been OBSESSED with my instant pot lately so I am super excited to see this recipe! I will have to try it for sure! Chicken and bacon ranch rice, how yummy does that sound! 🙂

  8. I’m not sure you understand how happy you’ve just made me by posting this! I’ve recently made the switch to gluten free for medical reasons, and it hasn’t been fun.

    1. I remember when my youngest was first diagnosed, the change can be rather intimidating. Once you learn where gluten hides it continually gets simpler to cook gluten-free.
