Add chicken. When the oil gets hot add the chicken breast and cook until browned on all sides, approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove from the pot and set aside.
Add onions. Add the onions and cook for approximately 5 minutes, or until the onions soften and turn translucent. Make sure to use your spoon to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan as the vegetables cook.
Add packet. Add the salt, the package of seasoning from the wild rice mix (packet only not the rice), and the canned mushrooms to the onions and stir together.
Add broth. Pour in the chicken broth. If there are any browned bits left on the bottom of the pan use the liquid to help you scrape them up.
Add soup. Add the condensed cream of mushroom soup to the pot, then add the chicken on top. Don’t stir. Then, the rice on top. Do NOT stir the rice in but do press it down gently to make sure it is all in the liquid.
Natural release. When the timer goes off press CANCEL and let the pot do a natural release for 5 minutes. After a 5 minute natural release carefully flip the valve to VENTING and let the remaining steam escape.
Absorb excess liquid. When the pin drops down the lid is safe to open. Remove the lid and stir everything together. Let it all sit for approximately 5 minutes to let the rice absorb any excess liquid.
