Turn Instant Pot to "Saute" mode. Add butter. When melted add chicken and onion and cook until most of the pink in the chicken is gone.
Add water, heavy cream and chicken soup. Stir.
Add rice, sprinkling it in so that it is evenly distributed. Add garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Do not stir.
Place lid on. Make sure valve is in "sealing" position. Pressure Cook on HIGH for 5 minutes. Manually release pressure.
Once the pin drops, remove lid and stir in cream cheese. Stir in Parmesan cheese, cheddar, and parsley. Place lid back on for a few minutes to melt cheese. Stir and serve. It will thicken up as it cools.
