Soyaki Chicken Instructions

    When cooking is complete do a QUICK PRESSURE RELEASE. Open your Instant Pot and remove chicken. Push CANCEL on your Instant Pot to stop its current process.
    Then Press SAUTE till the MORE setting is lit up. Wait for sauce to come to boil and then let REDUCE and thicken for about 5 to 7 minutes. When complete press Cancel on the Instant Pot to stop the sauce process.
    Return chicken to Instant Pot to coat with sauce. When you are ready to serve the chicken put sauce over chicken then sprinkle chicken with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.....Enjoy.

Soyaki Sauce Instructions

  • Add All ingredients to blender or food processer and pulse until combined.


I included the Soyaki Sauce recipe in case you would rather make it yourself or you do not have a Trader Joe's in your area. You can use Teriyaki if you have that available, but I do like the Soyaki flavor the best.
