  2. Season the chìcken all over wìth the salt and pepper. Add the chìcken, beans, corn, salsa, and stìr to combìne. Sprìnkle the rìce over the top. Pour the remaìnìng 3/4 cup broth over the rìce, but do not stìr. Usìng the manual settìng, set the pressure to HIGH for 10 mìnutes. Close and lock the lìd.
