Instant Pot Honey Sesame Chicken

Dinner just got easier with this tender, sweet and sticky Honey Sesame Chicken made in the Instant Pot.

Let’s get started!


Set the instant pot to the sauté mode. Working in batches, sauté the chicken in the instant pot with the cooking oil. Cook for about 1-2 minutes or until chicken browns.


Add in the honey, fish sauce, sesame oil, garlic powder, and ground ginger.


Seal the instant pot and cook on high for 4 minutes. Once done cooking, do a quick release and carefully open the lid after all the pressure has released.


In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch together with the water. Turn the instant pot to the sauté mode again and add in the cornstarch mixture.


Sauté until sauce thickens up, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


Plate and serve with sesame seeds and chopped green onions as a garnish. You can serve it with a side of cooked rice.
