Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add oil.

  • Combine cornstarch, salt, garlic powder, and Chinese five-spice powder in a bowl. Toss chicken in the mixture to coat and shake off excess.

  • Saute coated chicken in the hot oil in the pressure cooker pot until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken and allow to drain on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Clean out the pressure cooker pot.

  • Turn pressure cooker on again and select Saute function. Combine orange juice, water, vinegar, coconut aminos, cornstarch, sugar, garlic, and ginger in the pot and cook, whisking regularly, until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add cooked chicken and toss to coat.
