If you like sweet and savory meals this pressure cooker Hawaiian chicken is for you. It goes together in minutes, so in less time than you can order take out this meal will be ready.  Make a salad to serve along side and you have a complete meal.

You might even want to put dessert in your pressure cooker while you are eating dinner. My family really likes this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake. I often make two or three parts of our meal in the pressure cooker, so I have two of the inner pots.  This way I can make the main course and as soon as I pull it out slip in rice, potatoes or a dessert.  Pressure cooking has really saved our meal time. Check out some of our favorite pressure cooker recipes.

I love this pressure cooker Hawaiian chicken recipe because it is gluten free and soy free (and yummy).  By using coconut aminos you avoid both those ingredients.  If your diet allows wheat and soy, soy sauce can be used.  Cooking allergy friendly doesn’t have to be hard. The pressure cooker can make it quick, easy and delicious. I do try to make many of my pressure cooker recipes dairy free, egg free, soy free, nut free, wheat free because I have been eating this way because I have EoE.  I’m sorry the pumpkin bundt cake mentioned above isn’t allergy friendly, but don’t worry I am working on some allergy friendly desserts.

Allergy Friendly Pressure Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Recipe

2 pounds skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks

6 tablespoons coconut aminos (for soy & gluten free) or tamari (for gluten-free) or soy sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 (20 ounce) cans pineapple tidbits, un-drained

1 cup water or chicken broth

(if you like it a little spicy add about 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes)

2 tablespoons cornstarch to be mixed with 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid

Place all ingredients in the Instant Pot.  Cook on high pressure cook 10 minutes. Release pressure.  Remove lid and change setting to saute. Remove 1/4 cup cooking liquid from pot and stir in 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Pour mixture back into the pot and cook a few minutes until sauce slightly thickens.  Serve over rice.

  1. You can use either water or chicken broth. If I have it I use chicken broth I think it adds to the flavor, but either works. I hope you enjoy!
