Hi, I am the submitter of this recipe and I noticed that this was not posted exactly as I had submitted it, this could effect the flavor. When you put the chicken back in the cooker pour the duck sauce over it and follow directions. After the chicken is cooked, remove it and boil the sauce until it is thick and syrupy.
Very bland. Too soupy. I had to boil off 1 - 1.5 cups of the water after releasing pressure. It is missing something, but I don't know what it is.
This was absolutely DELICIOUS! The only reason I didn't give it FIVE stars was because I was swearing I'd never make it again when I was in the browning-the-chicken step. That oil pops like crazy, and the pressure cooker is deep, so you have to get your hand down in there to turn it, which leads to burns. I discovered using a flat spatula (pancake flipper type) was easier since it has a longer handle, and you can quickly loosen the chicken pieces from the bottom of the pan. I might consider doing the browning in a skillet first, then transferring everything to the pressure cooker.
Besides that technicality, it was AMAZING. My kids and husband ate it all and practically licked the plate.
Thanks for a great recipe!
this recipe was wonderful and so easy. the sauce tasted even beter on the leftovers the next day. thanks for sharing it.
I was skeptical but desparate for a pressure cooker chicken recipe. It was great. I used dried ginger the first time because it was all that I had on hand. I added extra honey. As suggested, added the preserves, etc while the chicken was cooking. However, next time, I will double the sauce mix. Serve with rice. It is great!
This is awesome. My family raved over this. The chicken was soooo tender and moist and the sauce just took it to another level. Extremely easy. Will definitely be making this often.
An absolute phenom! I use my pressure cooker only 3 or four times a year, but now I'll use it more. This recipe is no doubt one of my top ten best meals ever. Excellent!
Thanks for a fast and easy recipe - I left out the white wine, substituted water and it still had plenty of flavor!
