So easy and delish. Doesn’t taste like goopy sesame chicken from Chinese takeout, it’s lighter and fresher feeling but with the same general flavors. Really awesome.

This skinny pressure cooker sesame chicken was delicious! I had some friends over and they all loved it. I served it over rice and alongside broccoli, it was a huge hit. Definitely one of my favorites. The sauce was incredible!

I loved this sesame chicken! It was a little sweet, which I like. I used low-sodium soy sauce and added extra sriracha for spice. Really delicious, and perfect with brown rice.

I made this for dinner, not meal prep, and it was so yummy. Usually my kids are super picky eaters, but they loved this. I just skipped the sriracha so it wouldn't be spicy. Anytime I don't have to use oil is a win for me!

I used brown rice, plain sesame seeds (not toasted), and light soy sauce. Yum! It doesn't get any easier than this! My MultiPot is in regular rotation, and this is one of my favorite recipes. Thanks Caroline!

Made it a few times. I have some trouble getting the sauce to thicken, but that’s my error I guess. Flavor is awesome.

This was my first recipe that I tried. I used Franks hot sauce instead and powdered ginger and it was still yummy. I used low sodium soy sauce but next time I’ll use coconut aminosI didn’t know if I was going to ruin this dish so I didn’t want to waste my precious expensive coconut amino’s. I really cannot believe that chicken cooked in three minutes. I was very skeptical but I’m a believer now! Thank you for the quick yummy dish!

Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. I served it over soba noodles. Next time I will throw some broccoli in there too.

First time using an InstaPot and this recipe was a success! Spicy but not to spicy! Husband even had seconds.
