Instant Pot Bourbon Chicken & Rice with Broccoli

This Bourbon Chicken recipe is sweet, easy, and delicious! Some say Bourbon Chicken is made with Bourbon and others say it is named after a street. This recipe is Bourbon free so we will say it was named after a street. This is a whole foods version that substitutes with coconut aminos instead of soy sauce in the built in teriyaki sauce. If serving with broccoli as shown, cook separately on the stove to your desired tenderness. The chicken and rice will be cooked at the same time in the pot using the pot in pot method.
