Instant Pot Honey Sesame Chicken Recipe (soooo good)

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

I am in LOVE with my Instant Pot. Sure, it took a solid few weeks for me to try the thing out, but now that I have, there's no going back!!

I've tried quite a few recipes but like to tweak things to my taste so I've adapted a few recipes and am sharing this amazing dish that I just KNOW you're going to love as much as I do. The best part? Only ONE pot to clean!! SCORE!!

Instant Pot Honey Sesame Chicken


4 chicken breasts (boneless skinless) - diced (cubes)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (chopped) - I use a tsp of minced garlic in oil
3/4 cup Bragg natural soy sauce (you can use regular soy sauce)
1/3 cup ketchup
3 teaspoons sesame oil
3/4 cup honey
red pepper flakes (I just a couple shakes of the spice jar, yes, very scientific - how much you add will depend how spicy you want it)
2 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp water
1 red pepper
1 cup edamame (I use frozen)

Cooked rice (I use brown rice that I have pre-cooked)

Preheat Instant Pot (IP) using the saute setting. Add vegetable oil, onion, garlic and chicken to IP and saute stirring constantly for 4 minutes, press cancel on IP.

Add Bragg sauce, ketchup, sesame oil, honey and red pepper flakes to pot and stir. Pressure cook mixture on high for 3 minutes. Once pressure cook is done, wait 5 minutes and then do quick pressure release.

In a separate small bowl, combine water and cornstarch and add that mixture to pot. At this time you will add chopped red pepper and edamame to the pot. Select Saute and cook until sauce thickens up a bit.


Note: I serve this over pre-cooked brown rice. I'm still figuring how to perfect the cook of my brown rice using this brown rice pressure cooking guide.
