I absolutely love my Instant Pot. This is the one I have.   It’s a real lifesaver on busy weeknights.  It takes no time at all to pull together a flavorful, homemade meal using the pressure cooker function.

This Honey Garlic Chicken is a twist on my slow cooker honey garlic chicken.  In this recipe, though, I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.  The thighs stay moist in the high-pressure cooking environment and have great flavor.  I also have a skillet brown sugar chicken and a baked honey garlic chicken, too.

    My kids love honey garlic chicken! This recipe is a little bit different so I can’t wait to try it. I love making it for my kids in the slow cooker because it’s easy and quick.

    SO EASY TO MAKE – perfect for busy families and the house smelt amazing as it cooked. I love chicken and honey in combination but switching out my normal mustard for garlic meant that the kids would eat it as well.

  3. 5 stars
    The salty-sweet sauce for this chicken is delicious! I love that you don’t have to sear the chicken before adding it to the pressure cooker. It saves time and dishes!.

    What a super scrumptious recipe! My mouth is salivating just waiting for my Instant Pot to finish cooking this fabulous honey garlic chicken. I’m in my office, but I can smell the heavenly aroma floating out from my kitchen. Thank you so much for this quick and easy recipe!
