Pressure Cooker Barbeque Chicken

CatherineSolo

"This chicken dish is incredibly easy to make and very delicious. It's a childhood favorite of my partner's; his mom served it with rice and green beans for an easy weekday meal. Feel free to add other hot sauce or spices to jazz it up. Frank's RedHot® sauce is a great addition."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute any cut of chicken for chicken thighs, if desired. The amount of chicken can be increased to up to 3 pounds in this recipe.
  • Make sure to cook the chicken long enough, or the sauce will be too watery. Don't be tempted to stop the pressure cooker too early.

Loved it! Didn't have chilli sauce on hand so I substituted generic bbq sauce. The next time I'd double the delicious sauce as I served it on a bed of rice.

This was easy and tasty. I made it exactly as the recipe said other than adding a little more liquid as recommended by an earlier review. I don't think I would have had to....but it never hurt...

I loved the simplicity of this recipe. But I cheated and used our favorite bottled barbecue sauce adding the onions, vinegar and water to it. Halved the recipe (only 2 of us) and I cooked an e...

I didn't make any changes and will have it again. This was my first pressure cooker dinner, and my husband loved it.
