  1. Mix soy sauce, water, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, mirin, sake, garlic, and pepper in a bowl to make a sauce.
  2. Place chicken in an electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Pour sauce over chicken. Close and lock the lid. Select Meat function; set timer for 12 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  3. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C); if not, cook chicken for another 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from the pot and cut up or shred. Mix with the sauce from the pot.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For a thicker sauce, cook for a few minutes using the Saute function.

This made an easy, quick meal. It could have used a little more flavor, and the sauce was very thin even after sauteeing five minutes.
