Instant Pot General Tso Chicken

YUMMY! This was another Instant Pot success. Find the recipe below!

Instant Pot General Tso Chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken thighs cut into 2-3 inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 6 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 teaspoons hoisin sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

Cornstarch Slurry:

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water

Garnish:

  • Red pepper flakes
  • Sesame Seeds

Instructions

  1. Start by cutting the chicken into 2-3 inch chunks, I tend to leave them a bit larger as the pressure cooker tends to make the chicken very moist and this helps to avoid breaking the chicken pieces.
  2. Heat up your pressure cooker: press Sauté -> click on the Adjust button -> select More to get the Sauté More function, which means that the food will be sautéed over medium-high heat. Wait for the Instant Pot indicator to read HOT.
  3. Add the oil to the hot Instant Pot, wait one minute for the oil to heat up and add the chicken. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring a few times. Cook until it just starts to get golden. This step can also be done on the stove if you want, as the instant pot doesn’t really brown the chicken too well.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot: ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar and water.
  5. Stir well to combine.
  6. Close lid, select the Poultry function and adjust the time to 5 minutes.
  7. Use a 10 minute Natural Release. Turn off the heat. Release the remaining pressure. Open the lid. Gently stir not to crush the chicken.

Cornstarch Slurry:

  1. Select again the Sauté function. In a small bowl combine the cornstarch with the water, whisk until all combined with no lumps. Add the mixture to the Instant Pot and gently stir to combine. Cook on Sauté function for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens. This way you can make the sauce thicker. You can add more if you want to make the sauce even thicker, please note that it thickens as it cools too.
  2. Turn off the Instant Pot and let the General Tso Chicken stand for 5-7 minutes, the sauce will thicken more.
  3. Serve over rice with broccoli and garnish with fresh chopped green onions, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds.
  4. Enjoy!

Chicken Tortellini Spinach Soup

This recipe was a most definite WIN! The recipe made way more then we were able to eat though!

Chicken Tortellini Spinach Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans petite diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs or chicken breasts* (I used half thighs and half breasts)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 cups frozen cheese tortellini (or you can use fresh)
  • 3 cups packed spinach (you can also use kale if you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup half and half, warmed

DIRECTIONS

  1. Turn the Instant Pot on to the saute function, on the highest setting. Heat the oil in the bottom of the pot. Add in the diced onion and stir for a couple of minutes. Add in the garlic and stir until the onions are translucent, another couple of minutes.
  2. Add in the basil, tomato paste, chicken broth, tomatoes, chicken, salt and pepper. Give a quick stir. Cover the Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to “sealing.” Press the manual pressure cook button and set the timer to 15 minutes (high pressure). Once the timer beeps let out the pressure by gently moving the valve to “venting.”
  3. Spoon the chicken out and place it on a cutting board. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and then add it back into the pot. Stir in the tortellini, spinach, Parmesan cheese, and half and half. Turn the IP to saute to heat up the tortellini quickly. Once the tortellini is warmed through ladle the soup into bowls and serve.
