  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Mix chicken, onion, and garlic together in your pressure cooker insert.
  2. Stir honey, soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, sesame oil, and rice vinegar together in a bowl; pour over the chicken mixture and stir.
  3. Place the insert into the slow cooker, seal the lid, and cook on High for 15 minutes.
  4. Use the quick-release feature to relieve pressure before removing the lid.
  5. Stir the cornstarch into the water with a fork to dissolve; stir into the sauce.
  6. Use Sauté function to cook sauce, stirring frequently, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

Your pressure cooker will tenderize onion and garlic and keep chicken moist without using oil, making it a great tool to reduce your fat intake.

This was great! I bet you could probably get away with not using the pressure cooker and get a really similar result, but it wouldn't be as easy and the chicken would be a little more firm.

I only subbed chicken breasts for thighs and added a little more time in the cooker. I also squeezed a little extra lime and added a tiny bit extra ginger. Yummy and so easy!!
