Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken

I have gone from a skeptic to a believer of the Instant Pot. This miracle machine is wonderful and efficient and is nothing short of amazing! It makes cooking simple.

The Instant Pot craze has grown considerably over the last several months and now it seems everyone has one or knows someone who has one.

When I received my Instant Pot, the first question I asked myself was “What do I fix in this thing?” There are so many buttons and, to be quite honest, I was somewhat overwhelmed at first.

Whether you’re considering purchasing one, recently purchased one or haven’t quite figured out all the capabilities of the Instant Pot, don’t fret. I’m here to help and share how to work this magic pot of wonder!

On a side note, if you haven’t invested in some Instant Pot cookbooks, I highly recommend several good ones. You can browse all available cookbooks through Amazon below.

Meals are so easy to prepare in the Instant Pot. I absolutely love using this magical gadget. Home cooked meals are easily prepared and not nearly as time-consuming as standing over the stove preparing the same meal. Also, as an added bonus, you have only one pot to wash!

  1. I made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! I added some Sriracha because I was in the mood for some heat. Served it alongside rice and some broccoli I’d tossed into the sauce after I pulled the chicken out. Thank you for an excellent recipe that worked like a charm.

  2. Thanks for this recipe, it will be my FIRST attempt at cooking something in my new Instant Pot!
    Wanted to know if I can half the recipe for just 2 of us as we are now empty nesters. Will the lack
    of liquids affect the outcome? Thanks for any help you can provide.
    Lovely website you have!

  3. You definitely could half it without any issues. You also can make the full recipe and heat it up for left overs later. We do that often. 🙂

  4. So, this was absolutely yummy and simple! The hubby was in awe that I just “threw it together.” Shared it on the Instant Pot Community on Facebook. Thank you so much!

  5. yes, please specify for us newbies on how to make this with frozen chicken! also, your recipe box has disappeared somehow, replaced with the text “[amd-yrecipe-recipe:3]”

  6. I cannot find the “recipe box” or amounts for each ingredient. It sounds so good…. I would love to make it the week. Please help! Thanks in advance.

  7. Hi Judy, I am assuming you do not read any news sites either because they ALL have ads on them. It is 2018. This is the digital world. In order to avoid ads, you will need to buy a cookbook. Sorry- I cannot afford to produce recipes, buy groceries which are outrageous, pay for my hosting which is very expensive, photography etc for free. I don’t think most people work for free. So that means I need ads. The recipe is at the end of the post, that you scrolled through to leave this comment. Blessings!

  8. Oh! By the way, I didn’t have ads on my site for over 5 years. Until I couldn’t possibly afford to keep my site up any longer without them. If you would like to take on my monthly expenses though, I would gladly turn them off. 😉

  9. Hi there, I am looking at the situation with the recipe card. It is working on my end. I am going to have the creator of the recipe card to check it out. Anyway, to do frozen it would be the same as thawed. It would just take longer to come to pressure.

  10. I cannot seem to find the “recipe box”on this page listing the ingredients and their amounts. Can someone please help me out?

  11. I looked for the recipe box under where it says to print recipe. It is not there. Could you please respond to this comment with the ingredients and amounts of each ingredient needed for the recipe?

  12. Hi Nancy, I had a technical glitch with my recipe card. I just recently moved to a new one that is more user friendly. When they moved me over, they kept some of my recipe cards in review only. So sorry about that! It should be fixed now.
