The kitchen not thing Iíve ever used canned mushrooms for was chicken a la king.  My mother used a specific brand B in B, broiled in butter, was what it stood for, and they were tasty.

That looks good. I don't think I have poultry mode. I only ever use manual. It would help if they explained what these different modes do. I thought it was just a preset cook time, like eggs would be 5 minutes, but some of them do different things I think, like beans soak for a bit and then cook or something. But the manual doesn't tell you what's going on. I found a website somewhere that explained it, but not sure I book marked it. Anyway, does anyone know what the poultry setting might do that's different from manual 20 minutes?

Iím not sure, Bensmom, but I think it might vary the pressure during cooking.  I might have read a similar blog article about each setting, but donít remember where it was, either.  I tend to use manual most often.

I tried this tonight. I do not have a poultry setting so I just used high pressure. I browned the chicken on top of stove.

I read comments and someone mentioned adding pineapple at the end. I thought that sounded good so tried it. I donít think it affected the chicken or the sauce...but I got to eat some pineapple.

The chicken was good. I did not like the sauce on my rice though. Had lots of rice so I threw it out and took some fresh.

I have not tried these unstuffed cabbage rolls. But I plan to.

https://www.simplyhappyfoodie.com/instant-pot-unstuffed-cabbage-rolls/

This was dinner tonight.

I used 2 pounds meat instead of one, but otherwise basically followed the recipe. It was good, but not quite as flavourful as I would have liked. We decided it needs more tomato.

But, the cabbage and rice came out the perfect texture. (I used basmati rice...thatís what I had.)

This is in my pot right now. Used 2 pounds meat again. Added a can of spaghetti sauce as well as the canned tomatoes. Hoping I didnít screw it up. The directions say to add ingredients, stir, then add canned tomatoes on top and do not stir. I added everything and stirred.

Itís still preheating...hope it pressurizes.  :crossed:

Anyone try this? Freeze stuff so itís almost like instant?

https://acadianasthriftymom.com/2017/01/08/17-easy-freezer-dump-meals-for-your-instant-pot/

Made the honey mustard chicken a couple nights ago. Eh. I wouldn't make it again. So far from this list, the red beans are a winner and I liked the orange chicken, but dh would like it better with thighs.

I have the lemon garlic chicken still left in the freezer.
