Pressure Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

November 14, 2012 by 7 Comments

It’s always amazing to me that a Pressure Cooker prepared meal is so fast and yet offers SO much flavor!  I made Pressure Cooker Teriyaki Chicken this week and it was a total hit!  The chicken was perfectly tender, texture is very important to me.   If you haven’t used a pressure cooker before, here are some pressure cooker tips.

The ingredients were items I always have on hand.

Served with broccoli over rice, Pressure Cooker Teriyaki Chicken was a fast and delicious meal for my family!

Serves: 4
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced

  1. With the cooker’s lid off, heat oil on HIGH or “brown”, until sizzling.
  2. Place onions into the cooker, and cook until they begin to caramelize, about 6 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken, teriyaki sauce, chicken broth, garlic, and onion powder and toss to fully coat all.
  4. Securely lock the pressure cooker’s lid and set for 8 minutes on HIGH.
  5. Perform a quick release to release the cooker’s pressure. Remove lid and set cooker to HIGH or “brown.”
  6. Whisk brown sugar and cornstarch into the 2 tablespoons of water and add to the cooker, stirring into the sauce. Let simmer 2 minutes to thicken.
  7. Serve over rice.

  1. Yum! That looks delicious…I’ll have to try this real soon! XO

  2. That sounds delicious! I wonder if I could adjust this to make in a slow cooker since I don’t have a pressure cooker.

    How do you set a pressure cooker to high or “brown”? My pressure cooker goes on the stovetop. Can I still use these directions?

    I have made this twice. Once with chicken thighs in the pressure cooker, and another time with chicken breasts. Both times turned out amazing. This is a recipe I will be making over and over. Thank you for sharing.

    This was fantastic and went straight into my Favorites binder! I used Bragg’s Liquid Aminos instead of the teriyaki sauce because that’s what I had on hand – it worked perfectly!
