To begin with this particular recipe, we have to prepare a few components. You can cook honey garlic instant pot chicken using 7 ingredients and 12 steps. Here is how you can achieve it.

The ingredients needed to make Honey Garlic Instant Pot Chicken:
  1. Make ready 1/3 cup water or vegetable broth or chicken broth
  2. Make ready 1 ⁄4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  3. Make ready 1 ⁄4 cup honey
  4. Prepare 2-4 cloves garlic minced (depending on how much you love garlic)
  5. Take 1 ⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
  6. Prepare 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  7. Get 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Step two, take out the meat and thicken the sauce. I know, it's so hard to choose; crock pot honey garlic chicken or instant pot honey garlic chicken. I mean, one takes hours of cooking, and the other makes it all in minutes. But the instant pot is possibly my new favorite way to cook.

Steps to make Honey Garlic Instant Pot Chicken:
  1. Combine water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic and pepper in Instant Pot. Stir.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the Instant Pot
  3. Seal the lid and turn the steam valve to the sealing position.
  4. Set Instant Pot to pressure cook/manual, high pressure. Set the cook time according to the size of your chicken breasts. For fresh: 8 minutes for small (7-8 ounce) chicken breasts, 10 minutes for medium (10 ounce) chicken breasts, or 11 minutes for large (12 ounce) chicken breasts.
  5. For frozen chicken breasts, add 3 minutes to the cooking times listed in step 4, and pressure cook (manual) at high pressure. Be sure that your chicken breasts are not stuck together as that will increase the pressure cook time
  6. The Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure and then will start counting down the cook time. When it beeps to let you know the cook time has finished, carefully quick release the pressure by using the handle of a long spoon to turn the steam valve to venting. (If your chicken breasts were frozen, do a 10 minute natural release instead of a quick release. Just leave the Instant Pot alone for 10 minutes before turning the steam valve to the venting position.)
  7. Wait for the steam to escape and the pin to drop down. Then, carefully remove the lid
  8. Use an instant read thermometer to test the internal temperature of the chicken. It should be at least 165 degrees F. If the temperature is lower, finish cooking the chicken using the Instant Pot's saute mode
  9. Remove chicken to a clean plate or cutting board.
  10. In a small bowl, stir together the 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 - tablespoon water. Turn the Instant Pot on saute mode and stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring, until the liquid has thickened, 2-3 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot and remove the inner pot to stop the cooking process
  11. Slice the chicken and stir it back into the sauce in the pot. Serve with rice and vegetables, or as desired
  12. To Make as a Freezer Meal: - 1. Add water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic, pepper and chicken to a heavy duty zip top freezer bag. - 2. Freeze flat for up to 3 months. - 3. When ready to cook, thaw in cool water just until sauce is thawed. - Transfer to Instant Pot and cook as directed above

I mean, one takes hours of cooking, and the other makes it all in minutes. But the instant pot is possibly my new favorite way to cook. If you don't have an Instant Pot, you can make this honey garlic chicken in a slow cooker, or on your stove top. If you use a slow cooker, make sure not to overcook the chicken thighs. The Instant Pot Honey Garlic Chicken is ready to serve.
