  • In a large bowl, mix together the garlic, red pepper flakes, and vinegar. Salt and pepper the chicken pieces then add to the mixture making sure each piece is evenly coated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, let marinate for at least 15 minutes and up to a half hour. Meanwhile prep your vegetables and place the saffron threads and kosher salt in the warmed chicken stock.
  • If you have a “browning” setting on your pressure cooker, use it to brown the chicken pieces, otherwise, use a large sauté pan (one that can accommodate all the chicken pieces) to medium-high heat. Add the olive oil then the chicken pieces. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until chicken is lightly browned. Set chicken pieces aside on a large plate (they will not be fully cooked).
  • When all the chicken is cooked, leave any excess fat in the pan. Add the onion, bell peppers, and jalapeno pepper, sautéing for a few minutes until onion is translucent. Add the Roma tomatoes, ground cumin and the bay leaf. Saute for another minute or so.
  • Add the rice and mix, making sure to thoroughly coat. Cook for a couple minutes so the rice has a chance to absorb the juices and fat in the pan. If using a saute pan, transfer contents to the pressure cooker.
  • Pour the saffron-infused chicken stock into the pan and give it a quick stir. Place the reserved chicken pieces on top and pour any remaining juices on the plate into the pressure cooker pan.
  • Place the lid on the pressure cooker and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Once time is up, let sit an additional 7 minutes on warm, then release pressure, if it hasn’t already released. Remove chicken pieces, then place rice on a large platter, arranging chicken pieces over rice.
