  1. Whisk honey, soy sauce, water, garlic, and red pepper flakes together in a small bowl; set aside.

  3. Return all chicken to the pot and stir in honey-soy mixture. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 4 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  4. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.
  5. Mix together cold water and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth; stir into the pot. Select Saute function, adjust for low heat, and bring to a simmer. Stir constantly until sauce has thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions.
