Chicken Delirious and Buttered Rice (for Pressure Cooker)

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"For all you fans of my 'Chicken Vicious', here is the Polynesian counterpart. Sweet, tangy, easy, spicy, and absolutely the best Polynesian chicken dish you ever tasted! For all you pressure cooker fans, this is a snap. This will also work in a regular Dutch oven, but the cook time will be about 3 times as long."

  1. Place onions, green bell peppers, and carrots in the pressure cooker; add chicken. Whisk 1 cup orange juice, whiskey, brown sugar, vinegar, red pepper flakes, ginger, and sesame oil together in a bowl; pour over chicken mixture. Stir to combine. Place lid on pressure cooker and lock; bring to full pressure over medium heat until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 15 minutes. Let pressure come down naturally, about 15 minutes.
  2. While chicken is cooking, combine water and rice in a microwave-safe casserole dish. Cook on high in microwave until water is absorbed and rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir butter into rice; toss well.
  3. Whisk 1/2 cup orange juice and cornstarch together in a bowl; stir into hot chicken mixture until whiskey sauce is thickened. Serve chicken over the hot buttered rice.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Be sure to add red pepper flakes in stages to achieve desired heat. I use 1 to 3 tablespoons!

The only reason I didn't give it a five was for the veggies: I think 15 minutes was too long for them to cook. The flavor was amazing! And the chicken was delectably tender. Maybe cook the chick...

Delicious! I didn't have orange juice or whisky, so subbed chicken broth. I'll try it with OJ and whisky after we get some. I have had my pressure cooker for a while but always forget to use ...

My family called this "orange soup". It was soggy and soupy.

My husband and sons really liked this recipe. It had plenty of flavor.

It was just way too sweet tasting. And the whiskey flavor was super strong.
