  • Place chicken pieces in a large bowl, add cornstarch, and toss to combine.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select the Saute function. Add oil until hot. Add 1/2 the chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Flip and cook 2 more minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and repeat with remaining chicken. Pour chicken broth into the empty Instant Pot® and cook for 2 minutes, scraping up the brown bits with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pot. Turn Instant Pot® off. Return chicken to the pot and pour honey mixture on top. Stir to coat with sauce.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 2 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Serve chicken sprinkled with green onions and sesame seeds.

I reduced the sriracha to about a teaspoon (we are delicate) but followed the recipe exactly as written otherwise. I don’t know how many recipes I’ve tried trying to get this exact taste and texture but my search is over because this is perfect. The only thing we did wrong was eat it too fast - we didn’t let it cool. But when we were eating the rest out of the instapot like cavemen, the sauce was amazing. Adding to my life forever. Read More

Fussy recipe. Easier to saute chicken in a frying pan. The sauce however was very good. Read More

Typically, the first time I will try a recipe as written,as I did in this case. Then tweak it to my taste. The only changes to this one next time will be to cut back on the sriracha a bit. Only because my wife isn’t as big into spicy as I am. Tasty... Read More

I raised my eyebrows a bit at this being an instant pot recipe. But I thought, why not. Now while the sauce itself is great, this doesn't belong in an instant pot. It burned. Why? Because of the sauce being a very sugary sauce. While looking at the reviews it may have worked for others, for me though, it didn't. So be cautious. Some things unfortunately just don't work well in an Instant Pot. Read More

I made this dish this evening in my Instant Pot (3qt. version). It was delicious. I will make this again. To start with I halved the recipe because I am only cooking for one. I substituted Tabasco for Siracha. I am not a fan of Siracha. I also added 1TBS of Red Pepper flakes because I like it spicy. I served mine with white rice and some stir-fried veggies. This will be a go to recipe because it is easy to make and very versatile if you like to experiment. Read More

I liked it. Left out the sriracha because my wife doesn't like spicy and just added some hot sauce to my rice before spooning the mixture over it. Read More
