  • Put your diced chicken, sesame or olive oil, salt, minced garlic, pepper, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and chicken broth into your pressure cooker. Stir.
  • Close pressure cooker lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 4 minutes.
  • Do a quick release when done. Open lid and set aside.
  • In a small bowl whisk together your cornstarch and 5 tbsp of hot liquid from your pot until smooth.
  • Set your pressure cooker to saute and when sauce inside begins to bubble pour your cornstarch mixture in and stir for 1 minute. Then turn pot off. 
  • Dice green onions and put into pot, add as many roasted cashews as you'd like. Stir so everything is combined well.
  • Serve alone or on top of rice!
