Pressure Cooker Sweet Chili Soy Chicken


  • 3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Place chicken in the bottom of the inner pot of pressure cooker. Season well with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine soy sauce, honey, sweet chili sauce, ketchup, onion, lemon juice, and garlic in a small bowl; pour over chicken and then place butter on top of the chicken.
  3. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing.
  4. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 15 minutes on High Pressure.
  5. Set steam vent to Venting to quickly release pressure. 
  6. Remove chicken from pot, but leave the sauce in the pot. Press Cancel.
  7. Push the Sauté button. 
  8. Dissolve tapioca starch in cup water in a small bowl and pour into the pressure cooker. Stir sauce until well combined. Cook until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. 
  9. Cut chicken into ½ inch sized pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce. 
  10. Sprinkle sesame seeds and green onions over chicken and serve over rice.
Mealthy tip:

Sub rice with cauliflower rice to make this a grain-free meal. Use tamari soy sauce to make it a gluten-free meal.

Try this recipe using pork instead of the chicken for a different flavor.

I just recently was introduced to the MultiPot when my Instpot hit the fan. Ive been eager to try out some new recipes. This recipe caught me eye, as I love sweet chili. The only sub I made was lime, because I was out of lemon. The result came out fantastic and I opted for the cauliflower rice since I try to avoid grains. Which was a perfect side for it
