  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ½ cup low sodium chicken broth
  • cup honey
  • 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour


  • Add chicken breasts to the Instant Pot. Then, add butter, chicken broth, honey, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, garlic, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot and lock it into place. Turn pressure release valve to sealing, then select pressure cook, high pressure. Cook for 8 minutes. It will take 10 minutes for the pressure to build up. Before the cooking timer starts to count down. When the timer runs out let the pressure release on its own. About 10 minutes. Wait for the safety valve to drop before removing the lid.
  • Remove chicken and set aside. Then slowly start mixing 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour into 1/4 cup of water. Mix or whisk until the mixture is completely lump-free. Pour slurry into sauce and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add chicken back into Instant Pot. Use to fork to shred the chicken until it at your desired consistency.
  • Turn the Instant pot to saute and combine the chicken into the sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes until sauce begins to thicken.
  • Serve as desired and garnish with sesame seeds and diced green onion.
