Delicious Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken

Posted by  ·  April 12, 2018  ·  Last Updated: October 10, 2018

This Teriyaki chicken makes a great dump recipe.  You know those recipes you put all the ingredients into a freezer bag and then freeze.  Pull them out of the freezer and cook. It makes dinner time a breeze!  I also make Instant Pot Chicken Tacos and Instant Pot Honey Chicken this way. Dump recipes and the Instant Pot have revolutionized our meal time.  I make a dozen or so of meals and keep them in my freezer. The Instant Pot helps me to cook them from frozen quickly! It is a win-win.  Be sure to check out all my pressure cooker recipes.

Teriyaki Chicken

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken, thighs or breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

½ cup soy sauce (I use gluten-free)

¼ cup rice wine vinegar

¼ cup maple syrup

1 – 20 ounce can pineapple chunks (with juice)

2 cloves garlic, minced

How to make Teriyaki Chicken

It doesn’t get easier than this! I use this teriyaki chicken as a dump recipe.  I place all the ingredients in a one-gallon freezer ziplock bag and free. Whenever you need a quick meal just pull it out, remove from bag and place inside the instant pot and cook on high for 18 minutes on high pressure.  You also can cook in the crockpot for 8 hours on low. Serve with  rice and veggies

    Thank you very much for sharing this awesome idea: dump recipes! I can't wait to try all of them because making weeknight dinners easier after a busy day was the main reason for me to buy an (off brand) instant pot!
    Do you know if it is possible to cook the rice along with the chicken? Maybe in an extra bowl on a trivet?

      Yes, you can cook both at the same time. Use a tall trivet. Place the chicken in the bottom, then the tall trivet. On top of the trivet place a 7 inch round pan with the rice and cover with foil.
