Honey Sesame Chicken
Historically, I stink at cooking Chinese style food at home. My husband would attest.
My husband grew faith in my Chinese abilities, and I set out to make Honey Sesame Chicken.
Traditional Honey Sesame Chicken recipes call for frying the chicken before saucing – no thanks, and no frying in my Instant Pot. I am not a huge fan of fried food – #1, its a pain in the arse to cook at home – I hate that lingering “just fried” smell. #2, who needs all that fat?
Other recipes, including those I found specifically for pressure cookers, call for TONS of brown sugar and honey – they just seemed to be an amount I would want in dessert, not for dinner.
I set out to make my own Honey Sesame Chicken, and I have to say… Bravo. ?
This Honey Sesame Chicken is not only easy, but it is delicious. It’s the perfect amount of savory Umami-ness and the perfect amount of honey-sweet.
Instant Pot, or other pressure cooker. I have the 6 qt IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Instant Pot
I do this the morning I plan to make Honey Sesame Chicken. I throw it all into my Instant Pot insert, cover with saran wrap and store in my fridge. When its time to cook, the insert goes right into my IP!
