Directions

1. To make the Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki recipe: Combine 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, cayenne (if using), salt and pepper in a large shallow plate or salad bowl and coat the chicken cubes in the spice mixture. Allow to marinate for a couple of minutes while heating the Instant Pot.

2. Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and melt 1 tablespoon butter. Place diced chicken in the Instant Pot and quickly brown on all sides.

3. In the meantime, whisk together soy sauce, water, honey, fresh minced garlic, remaining garlic powder, rice vinegar, ground ginger, and crushed red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken the chicken pieces and give a quick stir.

4. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, and turn the vent to seal. Press “pressure cook” and set the timer to 5 minutes. Once cooking time is over, do a quick release.

5. Use a slotted spoon to remove chicken and transfer to a large plate or bowl. Set the Instant Pot to the “saute” setting.

6. Once the cooking liquid comes to a simmer, stir together corn starch and water and whisk into the sauce until thickened.

7. Turn off the Instant Pot, transfer cooked chicken back to the pressure cooker and stir well to coat in the sauce, and reheat quickly.

8. Garnish the Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki with chopped spring onions and serve over steamed rice or cauliflower rice. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Recipe

Honestly, there isn’t anything easier than cooking chicken in the Instant Pot! One of the best things about this Instant Pot chicken teriyaki recipe is that instead of reducing the homemade teriyaki sauce on the stove, you make it right in the Instant Pot.

  • For a low-carb version, serve the Instant Pot Teriyaki chicken over cauliflower rice or even broccoli rice.

How to serve the Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki

You can serve the Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken with rice. Use brown rice for a higher fiber and protein content. Cauliflower rice or broccoli rice is also an excellent low-carb option.

Can we use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts?

Yes, you can use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts in this Instant Pot recipe. Keep in mind that chicken thighs will render more fat.

Can we use frozen chicken in the Instant Pot?

Yes, just skip the first steps of browning the chicken bites. Pour the sauce directly and cook for 10 minutes instead of 5. Most Instant Pot chicken recipes are ok for using frozen chicken.

How and how long to store the chicken leftovers

Store any Teriyaki chicken leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator for 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Let sit overnight in the refrigerator to thaw. Reheat slowly in the microwave or on the stovetop, with a splash of water to thin the mixture a little.

    I had planned on making something else for dinner tonight, but was missing an ingredient so I did a search for a chicken instant pot recipe and found this one. I had all the ingredients. Normally I am not the biggest fan of Teryiaki, but this was delicious. The bonus is that both my kids loved it, as well as my husband. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I’m glad honey is called for rather than sugar.

    The recipe was delicious, and my family described it as the "Leann Chin's cashew chicken without the cashews"! However, I wanted to point out the cook time for this recipe. While 10 minutes of prep time is a little ambitious, what was more off was the cook time. I am a new Instant Pot user, but even so, the recipe doesn't account for the "pre-heat" time the pot requires every time you turn it to a new setting. What says is 10 minutes of cook time actually took close to an hour. I also added an extra tablespoon of cornstarch to make the sauce a little thicker. All in all a great recipe, just be prepared for it to take a lot closer to an hour of cook time!
