  • 4 chicken breasts (boneless/skinless)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce use low sodium if you wish
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch + 1/4 cup cold water to thicken sauce

For Serving:

  • Cooked rice
  • Scallions chopped, to taste


  1. Place the chicken breasts in your Instant Pot.

  2. In a bowl, whisk the ketchup, sriracha, honey, soy sauce, and water until smooth. Pour over the chicken.

  3. Close the lid and set the valve on "sealing". Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. 

  4. Once the countdown has finished, carefully do a quick pressure release. This ensures the chicken won't overcook. 

  5. Take the chicken out and place it on a cutting board. 

  6. Press the "sauté" button on your Instant Pot. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix the cornstarch + 1/4 cup cold water. Add it to your Instant Pot and let it simmer for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened up a bit. 

  7. Meanwhile, cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Add it back into the Instant Pot when the sauce has thickened enough.

  8. Serve over rice and with chopped scallions if you wish.
