RICE: If using a different kind of rice, you will need to adjust broth amount. Read rice to liquid ratio on the package of your rice, and add more or less broth accordingly. So if your rice requires 2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice, you will need to add 2 cups broth (instead of the 1 1/2 cup in the recipe). Aborio rice requires 2 or sometimes 2 1/2 cups of liquid per 1 cup rice. Different kinds of rice also require different cooking times. For example, brown rice takes 15 mins of pressure cooking. Wild rice takes 25. If unsure how much liquid your type of rice needs, just google.
I have not tried this with brown rice, but am guessing the brown rice would need 1/4-1/2 cup more liquid and take 5 minutes longer to cook.
BURN ERRORS: I used a 6-quart instant pot, have tested this 4 times, with no burn errors using jasmin rice and white basmati rice. With that being said, a few of you are still getting burn errors- and I believe it is because you are using a diffrent kind of rice, with not enough liquid. So just make sure to read your rice package. Please leave any notes in the comments bellow for suggested ratios and times- for others to references. Thanks!!!
STOVE TOP VERSION: If making on the stovetop, follow same directions, but perhaps brown the thighs first before nestling into the rice. Bring to a simmer, cover, cook on low until rice is cooked through. (25-35 minutes).
