The BEST Instant Pot Sticky Chicken

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!

If you are new to the Instant Pot, this recipe is PERFECT for you! Or even if you have been using the Instant pot for awhile, this is a perfect one if you are in a hurry! The best part about this Sticky Chicken is that it is done in a matter of 30 minutes or less! (that includes waiting for the Instant Pot to pressurize!)
