4. Return the browned chicken to the pan, place it crispy skin side up and add the trivet, with the legs between the thighs.

5. Place a bowl on the trivet, which can accommodate the inner pot and is large enough to leave room for the rice to cook and expand.

6. Add the quinoa, rice and 250 ml of water to the bowl with a generous pinch of salt and close the pressure-cooking lid.

7. Pressure cook at high temperature for 2 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of natural pressure release.

8. Once the cooking time has elapsed, remove the lid. Loosen the quinoa rice and remove the bowl. Put aside.

9. Remove the chicken pieces and stir in the spinach, chopped basil and mixed herbs. Stir until the spinach shrinks from the residual heat and season the sauce. Divide the quinoa rice into bowls and serve.
