Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Chicken

  1. Place your chicken in the bottom of the Instant Pot.

  2. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken, put your Instant Pot lid on and seal.

  3. Cook on the meat setting for 20 minutes and then quick release once the 20 minutes is up (see note). Remove chicken from pot, leave sauce.

  4. Dissolve four teaspoons of cornstarch in six tablespoons of water in a small bowl and pour into your Instant Pot. Stir to combine with sauce. Push the saute button and cook sauce for about five minutes or until slightly thickened.

  5. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce before serving. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve over rice or noodles. You can also sprinkle more red pepper flakes on top if you want more heat.

Note:

Editor's Note: Some comments on the original recipe report lots of splattering after doing the quick release, so proceed cautiously. 

Variation:

This can be prepared in a slow cooker too. Cook on low for 3–4 hours or high for 1 and 1/2 to 2 and 1/2 hours. Remove chicken, add cornstarch slurry to remaining liquid, and cook on high another 10 minutes until slightly thickened.

Prepare the Rice

  1. Add rice and water to your Instant Pot. Seal with the lid and push the Rice button. It will cook for 10 minutes, then quick release. You will have PERFECT rice!

    Came out yum with a rich flavor, tasted as good as the picture looked! Did it in a regular pot without removing the chicken and turned out incredibly delicious! Would put a bit less honey next time as it was too sweet for me.
