Once finished, move Sealing Vent down to Manually Release the pressure. Fluff up and set rice aside until serving.

Add the marinated chicken and the tomato paste. Stir through until chicken is sealed. Finally add the tomato purée and mix. 
 
Secure the Instant Pot lid and move Sealing Vent up to closed position.  Select the Poultry preset function and change time to 5 minutes. Once complete, allow the Instant Pot to release pressure naturally (about 5-10 minutes).   When the valve drops, remove the lid stir in the cream and mix well.
