Spicy Honey Instant Pot Chicken Recipe

Since the time I got my extravagant weight cooker I have been tinkering with new Instant Pot plans and have thought of numerous that are so snappy and my family adores! This hot nectar Instant Pot chicken is one of our top picks however! (associate connection present, initially distributed 6/17)

My most diminutive love orders “sweet chicken” when we get to Chinese food eateries so I meant to make something comparable. I needed a smidgen of warmth this time however since we love Sriracha!

This sweet and fiery nectar Instant Pot chicken formula turned out extraordinary the first run through around. We will make this one once more!

On the off chance that you don’t have an Instant Pot yet and are occupied like we are I strongly suggest getting one!
