  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp gingerroot, minced
  • 4 green onions, sliced


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Add water and trivet to Instant Pot and place chicken breasts on top. Press the pressure cook button and select the high setting, then set to cook for 8 minutes.
  • Instant Pot will take about 5-10 minutes to preheat then the 8 minutes to pressure cook. Note: to double recipe, add 5 more minutes cook time. Meanwhile, cook rice in a rice cooker according to package directions.
  • Let the pressure naturally release once chicken has finished cooking (should take 15-20 min), then open lid when safe to do so.
  • Remove chicken and shred with a fork and knife. Drain water from the pot and then toss chicken with soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger. Serve over rice and garnish with green onions.
