- 1 jar Teriyaki sauce Soy Very Very Teriyaki sauce 15 oz.
- 2 -3 chicken breasts boneless skinless, cubed into bite size pcs.
- 1 c pineapple chunk, optional
- 1 1/2 c rice uncooked, cook as usual, serve chicken on top
- 1 tbsp cornstarch optional
- 1 tbsp soy sauce optional
Cube chicken and add into Instant Pot or pressure cooker
Pour teriyaki sauce (3/4 of jar or enough to cover cubed pcs. of chicken), pineapple chunks, and soy sauce if you choose to add it into your Instant Pot.
Stir so all chicken pieces are mostly covered with liquid. (usually about 1 1/2 c. sauce or enough to cover chicken, watch video to see- do not use thick teriyaki sauces as those will burn)
Put lid on IP, close pressure valve, and set to manual low pressure for 3 minutes. (if adding 3 chicken breasts set to 4 minutes, 4 chicken breasts diced up set to 5 minutes)
Chicken will absorb yummy teriyaki sauce in just 3 minutes.
When it beeps do a quick release on your steam valve and carefully lift the lid and make sure chicken is not pink (if cut into bite size cubes 3 minutes should be perfect).
If you want the sauce to be a bit thicker remove your chicken, set pot to saute, and put about 4 tbsp. cold water in a small bowl with about 1 tbsp. cornstarch and whisk together until smooth (add more water if needed), then add back into the mix and stir.
Allow to bubble so the sauce thickens a bit. Serve over rice!
