Servings: 4
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 thick chicken breasts, cubed
  • 3/4 cup dark, sweet bbq sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (we used tamari gluten free)
  • 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions for garnish

Equipment

  • Instant Pot

Method

  • Place your raw cubed chicken breasts into the Instant Pot, adding bbq sauce & soy sauce along with it. Give it a quick stir.
  • Making sure the steam valve is turned to "seal", set the Instant Pot on MANUAL HIGH PRESSURE for 4 minutes.
  • Once finished, do a quick release of pressure by turning the valve to release. Once the steam has finished releasing, carefully remove the lid.
  • Take about 1/4 cup of the sauce from the mixture and add 1tsp of cornstarch, and mix well. Add back into the Instant Pot.
  • Next, add in the orange marmalade. Mix well.
  • Now set the Instant Pot to "Saute" and cook for about 5-6 minutes or until the sauce is thickened up.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot and let the chicken & sauce rest for about 5 more minutes.
  • Spoon out and serve over rice or vegetables, and top with chopped green onion. Enjoy!
