How To Make Instant Pot Risotto
On the saute feature you will add in the oil, and add in the chicken, and season with salt and pepper. You want to brown the chicken on all sides.
Take the chicken out of the Instant Pot and place it on a plate and set aside. Add in the butter and spices and allow them to cook. Stirring often.
Add in the rice and cook it to brown for 2 minutes or so. Pour in the wine and use a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan.
Reduce the liquid by half, once that happens add in the chicken and pour the broth on top.
Pressure cook as directed in the recipe card. Once the rice is done, open the lid, and then stir in the parmesan cheese, lemon juice, zest, and such.
Season with salt and pepper if needed and serve up a bowl of homemade risotto rice.

Absolutely! Go right ahead and leave out the chicken and make it without meat if you prefer. If you want a meatless side dish then use a vegetable broth instead of chicken.
