Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic puree
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, combine the soy sauce, sugar, apple cider vinegar, garlic puree, Worcestershire sauce, and ginger. Set aside.
  • Set your pressure cooker to brown and allow to heat up. Add the sesame oil and when it is hot, add the chicken. Allow to brown for about a minute or so on each side just until it starts to turn golden brown.
  • Add the sauce to the browned chicken and stir to coat. Set the pressure cooker to high pressure and set the time to 8 minutes. It will take about 5 minutes to get to pressure. Once done cooking, so a quick release of the pressure. Remove the chicken, set aside, and tent with foil to keep warm.
  • In a small dish, combine corn starch with 1 tablespoon of water to make a slurry. With the lid off, set the pressure cooker to saute and add the cornstarch slurry. Whisk constantly and cook until it thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve chicken with additional sauce. It goes great with rice and steamed broccoli.
