  • Put your diced (bite size) pieces of chicken as well as all other ingredients in the list into your pressure cooker (except for the cornstarch, we will use that later).
  • Stir together so chicken is coated well.
  • Close lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 6 minutes.
  • Do a quick release, turn off/cancel button, and then press saute button.
  • In a small bowl whisk together 3 tbsp of cornstarch + 3 tbsp of the hot liquid inside your pot. Pour this mixture in.
  • Mixture should now be bubbling. Stir and bubble for about 1 minute, then turn pot off.
  • Sauce will have thickened a bit, and will continue to thicken as it sits for a few more minutes.
  • Serve as is or on top of rice, enjoy!
