I’m becoming obsessed all over again with the Instant Pot and this honey sesame chicken is as good as it gets. I’m still amazed how efficient this pressure cooker can be and how it can turn out great tasting dishes in a matter of minutes (not including the time it takes to get to pressure) with minimal prep…and clean-up is so easy.
The prep time on the Honey Sesame Chicken was about ten minutes and the actual cooking time was only 3-5 minutes. All-in-all, from start to finish, this was on the table in 30 minutes. It was as good as any take-out chicken I’ve ever had…just click the Read More below for the printable recipe.
This amazing recipe from SeriousEats, a fantastic one-skillet dish, is reprinted exactly because there was absolutely no need to change anything…it’s perfect as-is. If it’s not an original recipe I’m writing about, and I get it from someone else, I’ll give them credit and then I’ll usually tweak it, make some changes or substitutions to try and improve it, but I can’t imagine anything that would make this any better than it is.
The prep was easy, the chicken was moist with a crispy caramelized skin, the sausages were spicy (I used hot Italian sausages), the brussel sprouts had a savory, crunchy exterior, the shallots were perfect and clean-up (one pan!) was a breeze. Give this one a try…I can pretty much guarantee it will end up as one of your go-to dishes.
