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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat pressure cooker over medium heat; cook chicken until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle paprika, salt, and pepper onto chicken.

  • Combine onion, chile sauce, water, and vinegar in a bowl; pour over chicken.

  • Cover pressure cooker with lid and cook according to manufacturer's instructions, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and release pressure through natural release method; open pressure cooker carefully.

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.
