Instant Pot Kitchen Supplies

  • Instant Pot Inner Pot - I like to have an extra inner pot available because of how much cooking I do in my Instant Pot. It comes in really handy when I want to put a lid on the inner pot and refrigerate the leftovers, or mix up ingredients the night before to save time at the end of the day.
  • Silicone Lid for Instant Pot- I'm not sure how I lived without this one. Having a silicone lid for my Instant Pot has made life so much easier. It is perfect for adding ingredients a day or two ahead of time.

How To Make Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki

Start by putting the cubed chicken into the Instant Pot. Add in one cup of water and set the valve to the sealed position.

Push manual or pressure cook button and set the time to 8-10 minutes (if the chicken is frozen). Once the pot stops counting, release the pressure.

Next, you're going to want to drain the liquid from the chicken. Once that is done put in the mushrooms and onion. Turn off the Instant Pot and turn on Saute mode. Put the lid on top of the pot. Stir often.

Grab a measuring cup and mix together the teriyaki sauce, garlic, and cornstarch. Use a whisk and whisk well. Once mixed, pour the mixture over the chicken, onions, and mushrooms while on saute mode. This will cause it to thicken fast. Once you notice that it starts to thicken, turn it off saute mode.

You can then add in black pepper, stir, and serve over white steamed rice.
