Remember this one?
And now I have even updated it with new photos, because thanks to the magic of the Instant Pot, this is now a one pot meal for us!
This was always a super popular recipe for the Crock Pot, but now I only make it in the Instant Pot. A few lovely ladies in my challenge group actually tried this one before I did and gave it rave reviews! I actually changed my meal plan to try it asap…and they were right! It was amazing.
There’s something about the Instant Pot that makes even the tastiest dishes even tastier.
Have you tried yours yet?
I kept this recipe pretty much the same at the original, but used my favorite Saute function at the end to thicken the sauce. And because we were in a hurry, I added a couple of teaspoons of rice flour and whisked it up a bit.
After cook time and a ten minute natural release, carefully (using oven mitts) remove rice from the Instant Pot and also remove the chicken using a slotted spoon, keeping the sauce in the Instant Pot. Set both aside.
Place green beans in your Steamer Basket. Do not add any more liquid, as you will use the Asian Chicken sauce to steam the beans. Set your Instant Pot to manual or pressure cook for 1 minute. Do a quick release.
Now you can thicken the sauce and enjoy your meal!
And my favorite part?
This tastes even BETTER the next day.
Well, if you are lucky enough to have leftovers, that is!
