Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 lbs of boneless skinless chicken thighs (1lb for 4 servings)
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/3 cup of coconut aminos (or sub low sodium soy sauce if you aren’t gluten free)
  • 1 T tomato paste
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • a dash of crushed red pepper
  • 2 tsp rice flour (optional)

Instructions

Cooking without rice

  1. Place chicken in the Instant Pot.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together, except flour.
  3. Pour over honey mixture over chicken and place the top on the pressure cooker. **If you are using an 8 quart pot, add 2/3 cup of water.
  4. Turn to high pressure and set for 15 minutes. It should take about 15 minutes to come to pressure.
  5. After the timer is up, switch to quick release.
  6. To thicken sauce, remove chicken and set to saute. Whisk in two teaspoons of flour, if desired, and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Then add chicken back in and keep warm until you are ready to eat.
  7. Serve chicken and sauce over rice or quinoa and your choice of veggie.

Cooking with rice (PIP)

  1. Place chicken in the Instant Pot.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together, except flour and rice.
  3. Pour over honey mixture over chicken. **If you are using an 8 quart pot, add 2/3 cup of water.
  4. Place your trivet over the chicken and liquid.
  5. In a IP safe pot, add equal parts rice and water.  I usually do 1-2 cups of rice and then the same amount of water. Cover with foil.
  6. Place your pot of rice on the trivet (use your sling if you have one or make an aluminum foil sling)
  7. Set your IP for 22 minutes.  Then do a 10 minute natural release.
  8. Carefully remove rice from Instant Pot, then the trivet and the chicken.
  9. To thicken sauce, set IP to saute. Whisk in two teaspoons of flour, if desired, and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Then add chicken back in and keep warm until you are ready to eat.
  10. Serve chicken and sauce over rice and your choice of veggie.
