Instant Pot Honey Bourbon Chicken {Soy Free Gluten Free}

    Posted by  ·  March 9, 2017

    Instant Pot Honey Bourbon Chicken actually doesn’t have any bourbon.  The original Bourbon Chicken recipe was created by a chef on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The honey and soy sauce alternative (coconut aminos) make a rich delicious sauce over the juicy bites of chicken.  We love this instant pot chicken recipe served over rice, but if you don’t eat rice it would be yummy over cauliflower rice. I am constantly amazing at how much the Instant Pot has changed dinner time for my family. No longer do I stress about what’s for supper!  It is easy to whip up last minute meals with no planning. Here are some of the Instant Pot Recipes we have been enjoying.

    Instant Pot Chicken Recipes

    My family loves these instant pot chicken recipes. I have made all these recipes dairy free, soy free and gluten free.  Just make sure you check all your individual ingredients.  Many spices can have hidden ingredients,

    Instant Pot Chicken Tacos if you diet allows load on the cheese and sour cream. Don’t worry if you can’t have those toppings because this chicken is so flavorful you won’t miss them. I love it with a few slices of avocado.

      The Bourbon chicken looks great but there is no mention of the rice in your recipe even though the picture clearly shows it. If I do a pot in pot, do you know how much time to add to cook the rice?

        Hi Lynn, I haven't tried the pot in pot yet. I have two pots and as soon as the chicken is done I pull that pot out and put it on my stove, adding cornstarch to thicken the sauce if desired. While I am doing that my other pot was ready to go with rice. I just put it in and hit the rice setting (8 mins). Rice in the Instant Pot is different than stove top. 1 cup of rice take 1 1/2 cups liquid. Hope this helps.
