Chicken Bog is a South Carolina tradition with lots of variations—think herbs, spices and fresh veggies—but the standard ingredients remain sausage, chicken and rice. This pressure-cooked rendition is a simple take on the classic. — Anna Hanson, Spanish Fork, Utah

Pressure-Cooker Chicken Bog

Prep Time 20 min
Cook Time 10 min
Yield 8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces smoked sausage, halved and sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 2 cups uncooked converted rice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 rotisserie chicken (about 3 pounds), meat removed and shredded
  • Thinly sliced green onions, optional
  • Hot sauce


  1. Select saute setting on a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker and adjust for medium heat; add oil. When oil is hot, add onion and sausage; cook and stir until sausage is lightly browned. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Press cancel.
  2. Stir in 4 cups broth, rice, salt and pepper. Lock lid and close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on low for 3 minutes. Allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure. Rice should be tender.
  3. Select saute setting; adjust for low heat. Stir in chicken and remaining broth. Cook until chicken is heated through, about 5 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with green onions. Serve with hot sauce.
