How To Make This Instant Pot Sticky Chicken Recipe:
Grab your Instant Pot and plug it in. Then press the SAUTE button and let it warm up.
Now, add in the honey, ketchup, sugar, white distilled vinegar, soy sauce, salt, and pepper to the inner pot and mix everything together.
Let that come to a boil while stirring it often. Allow it to simmer for a little bit for it to thicken up a little bit.
Then, add in a ½ of water and stir it all together again.
Next, pour in the frozen popcorn chicken into the pot with the sauce.
Mix the chicken into the honey sauce, make sure to get all of the chicken covered.
Once that is done, press the CANCEL button to turn off the saute function.
Then, put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the valve to the SEALING position.
After the lid has been locked in place, press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 7 minutes.
When the chicken is done cooking, allow the Instant Pot to do a quick release of the pressure by turning the valve to the VENTING position.
Once the pressure is released, remove the lid and stir the chicken together.
Now, just serve the sticky chicken over cooked rice, and top it with the chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
