Super simple Instant pot Chinese five spice chicken 快煲电压力锅五香鸡

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

The whole chicken cooked in instant pot, so simple and save time! Your dinner is ready when you acquire home. Let the pressure natural release.
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. five spice powder
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. chili powder (I use Sichuan chili pepper powder, mush spicer)
1 tbsp. smoked paprika
2 green onions
4 small slices of ginger
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 small chicken (3-4lb)
2/3 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp. chopped cilantro

Pat chicken dry with paper towels then season generously with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, whisk together five spice powder, brown sugar, chili powder, paprika. Rub the brown sugar mixture all over chicken outside and inside. Give little massage, let the spices set on the skin.

Preheat Instant-Pot to saute setting. When the Instant-Pot says it’s hot, add vegetable oil then add chicken, breast side-down . Let sear until skin is crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Use very big tongs to flip chicken then pour chicken broth in the bottom of the Instant Pot. Or you can use a different pan or wok to saute the chicken on the stove, the bigger wok works better for me, because that is easier to turn the chicken acquire all skin crispy. High heat first then turn to medium, watch your chicken skin the spices simple to burn.

After saute the chicken add green onions and ginger inside of the chicken.
Change setting to pressure cook setting on high and set timer to 25 minutes. Lock the lid into put and set the valve to “Sealing.”

Allow the Instant Pot to depressurize naturally then remove lid and take out chicken. Let chicken reset for 10 minutes before slicing.
