I'm in love I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!

If you can name that movie I'll be your friend forever.But honestly I am in love and I'm not ashamed of it.I'm in love with my Instant Pot.I held off getting one for over a year,not sure if it was worth the money and my time to figure out a new cooking device.I finally gave in and I only wish I'd gotten my hands on one sooner!

I still have a place in my heart for my slow cooker,but the Instant Pot pressure cooker is my new obsession and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Can I use chicken breasts / chicken thighs?

Yes!To all the above.You can use boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs in this recipe,whichever you prefer.For large pieces of chicken,over 1 1/2 inches thick,be sure to pound them to a lesser thickness to ensure even cooking.Both will yield super juicy and tender,flavorful shredded honey teriyaki chicken.

Can I adapt this recipe for a slow cooker / crockpot?

Yes!To make this honey teriyaki chicken recipe in your slow cooker instead of a pressure cooker,place the chicken and sauce in the slow cooker,cover,and set to cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or LOW for 6 hours.

Remove chicken from slow cooker,shred with two forks,and transfer sauce from slow cooker to a large sauce pan.Bring to a boil over high  heat and whisk in the corn starch slurry (corn starch + water) until thickened.

Toss chicken with sauce and serve.

The sweet and savory honey teriyaki sauce on this chicken is absolutely to die for yummy and makes for the BEST and tastiest honey teriyaki chicken.Cooking the chicken in an Instant Pot makes the chicken so fall-apart-tender and perfect for serving over your favorite fried or steamed rice.

My favorite tip for amping up this recipe is adding more crushed red pepper flakes – it adds a little extra kick of heat without over powering the sweet and savory tones of the dish.This week I made a full batch of this chicken for just my husband and I and we've been eating leftovers all week,it reheats so well!

Such a winner on so many levels,even your picky eaters will beg you to fix this chicken again and again!

I do not own a pressure cooker so can I use crockpot for this recipe?

Nevermind,I've just read where you have shown you can cook in crockpot.Thanks,

How much weight is 4 SKINLESS boneless chicken,1 1/2 pounds?Since chicken breasts vary in size it would be helpful to add the weight in the recipe.jUst a suggestion.

    I agree,I am making it right now with thighs and I have no idea if I used to the right ratio.I'm using 4 lbs of thighs

What would be the cooking time if using a Slow Cooker and not an instant pot?

    Hi Merle- I put a note in the post about adapting it for a slow cooker!On there you'll find notes about how to prepare the sauce as well!Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or on LOW for 6 hours.I hope that you enjoy this dish!

Isn't it obvious,you ninny muggins?The recipe sounds good.

    Ninny muggins- such a great movie!Give the recipe a try!You'll love it!My husband has already requested it be on the menu for this week,again!


lovely recipe!Makes me con188bet娱乐场sider an insta-pot,but for now will work in my slow cooker,thank you for this recipe and for the slow cooker version,I've also noted your suggestion about red pepper flakes,good thinking and yes!


Made This recipe tonight and followed recipe as written despite thinking that 1 1/3 cup did not sEEm right.This Was WAY-way too salty.Surely,its an error?

    Did you use low sodium soy sauce?If not,it would probably be too salty.I use (and noted that I do so) low sodium soy sauce in this recipe!I actually prefer to use low sodium in general when using soy sauce for any recipe.


    I agree way way too salty,it is now in my garbage disposal

I have made and loved so many of your recipes,but this was so salty,my family couldn't eat it.I even used low sodium soy sauce.

    Sorry to hear that!Not quite sure what went wrong!

      We made this tonight and definitely too salty.Couldn't eat.I would say skip putting it back into the sauce and just drizzle the sauce over instead.Just a thought.

        Thanks for your input,Nick!

What are the nutritional value of this recipe?

    Hi Sue- I recommend using My Fitness Pal for that stuff!They have an awesome (and free!) tool where you can input any online recipe URL into and it will generate the nutritional information for you..


I made this almost as directed and i was great.everyone really liked it.the only thing I did differently was to put 1/3 cup salted and 1 cup low
salt soy sauce.Thanks!


I made this almost as directed and i was great.everyone really liked it.the only thing I did differently was to put 1/3 cup salted and 1 cup low
salt soy sauce.Also,since I had just bought the chicken,I only cooked it for 24 minutes.Thanks!

    Hi Amee- Great job with the modifications!Don't you just love the instant pot?!Thanks for sharing!


ThIs would be perf if it was not so salty!I would make it again and cut the Amount of soy sauce!

    Thanks for your feedback,Danielle!!


    I agree,I put it down the garbage disposal

      Sorry to hear that,Candy!

Do we tUrn tge knob to venting when it is done cooking?I have waited 20 minutes and the flat valve still hasnt Gone down.Still new to this whole instant pot thing…

    Hi Kristen- no,you shouldn't need to turn it to venting.You switch it to venting when doing a "quick release".For this recipe,a natural release is called for.But,it shouldn't take more than 20 minutes!!I wonder if maybe your float valve was stuck or something?Sorry I am not much help for that without seeing it!


Did you mean 1/3 cup as opposed to 1 and 1/3 cups soy sauce?I put in less than 1/2 cup and and it was totally inedible.Maybe 1 and 1/3 tablespoons?

is the cooking tIme for high,medium or low?

    High pressure!


Thank you.The recipe was very good.The next time I prepare it,I will reduce the amount of soy sauce,Even using low sodium sauce,it was too salty.Less salt and more sweet next time.

    Thanks for your input,Mary!Happy to hear that it was enjoyed!


I like chicken from my childhood whenever chicken is prepared at home,I used to wait for my mother's call.PunamPaul.com have your lunch or dinner and I was the first to reach the table.
Being a teen my mother used to tell me the nutrition advantage of veggies,but I start telling to her that skinless chicken provides the least amount of calories and fat,about 143 calories,3g total fat and 1g saturated fat for half of a large boneless,skinless breast,or a 95g serving.
Mom knows I love chicken too much thus she used to start her food with a smile and we all enjoy our diet together.
My mom is a great chef and use to cook many recipes of chicken the recipe shared by you seems delicious and will surely try at home.


We made this as directed including the low sodium soy sauce.The chicken breasts we used were huge so the total amount of meat was 4.75 pounds.
some of the comments talk about the recipe being too salty.My family found it to be a a bit on the salty 188bet娱乐场side but not too bad.We topped the dish with canned pineapple chunks.
Next time we plan to cut the soy sauce in half and use pineapple juice in its place.
On the whole,the recipe was pretty good.

    Great suggestions!Thanks for your feedback,Bill!

I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce it and wasn't too salty at all.

    Awesome idea- thanks for your input,Chase!

I think,as others have noted,that it would be helpful to know weight/volume on the chicken and sauce.Especially due to the variability in size of chicken pieces.And for those who find that amount of soy sauce too salty,if you reduce the soy sauce,what should the total amount of sauce volume be for how much chicken?Also,in a pinch,if one wanted to use a bottled Teriyaki,it seems that would work too,but would be helpful to know volume of sauce to chicken.

The movie you can't remember the title is ELF with Will Ferrel!Here is a link on youtube for the famous scene:

Can we be friends forever now?Ah ah!

    haha!!This is hilarious- thank you for the laugh!


We only have low sodium soy sauce,so the saltiness that everyone talks about wasn't a problem.My little kids devoured this dish and everyone went to bed satisfied!

    Way to go pleasing all your littles!Sounds like you nailed it!Thanks for sharing!


This ended up in the trash,my family would not eat it.It also stunk up the house upon releasing the pressure Valve.Hours later and it still stinks.Im the only one that ate it and only to prove a point.I followed the recipe to perfection and was so proud of having all the invredients for once without going to the store.Low sOdium soy and everything.I will never embarrass my cooking skills again.

    Sorry to hear that this did not turn out well for you.Thanks for your feedback

This sounds sO delicious!Thank you for the slow crock pot recipe notes.I can't wait to tey this!What vegetables would you add?Frozen peas or corn?

    Oh,the "I'm in love,I'm in love,I'm in love with a wonderful guy!" Is from A musical originally.I think its Bells are Ringing,or Oklahomah!.Both are classics.Great fun to watch.

    I hope that you love it!!I typically do broccoli with this..but thats because I'm a HUGE broccoli fan!But I bet that peas or corn would be good,too!

waaaay too salty-I did not trust my cooking skills knowledge….into the disposal.
I cannot believe ow salty even low sodium soy sauce made it.revise the recipe before others follow it.


Is this a joke it was so bad


I made this in my Instapot and since I eat Paleo,used Coconu Aminos instead of soy sauce.I also used Tai Seasoning,instead of ginger and it came out great!

    Great job,Pam!Thanks for your feedback with this!


Interesting blog.You wrote emotionally and beatifully.I enjoy reading it.


The recipe looks so good!I have kidney problems and can't have a lot of salt.What would the substitute be or could I use a bit of soy sauce and add something else?"I'm in love,I'm in live,I'm in love with a wonderful guy!" Is fromNellie Forbush in the musical ‘South Pacific'..

    There is already soy sauce in this recipe- so make sure to use low sodium soy sauce.You could probably play with the amount of soy in this recipe to meet your needs and still achieve a good flavor!

Can I cook a whole chicken in my Instant Pot?

    I'm not positive what you mean by a whole chicken….I am not certain a whole chicken would fit in an instant pot!I have never tried this..sorry I don't have much input


I used this chicken on lettuce wraps and it was amazing!I used regular soy sauce and added a BIt more honey to balance the SALt.

    Great idea,Samantha!Thanks for sharing!!

How do I know when the soups boiling


I made this as my first recipe trying out my new pressure cooker.We loved it!But thought it was missing something.Veggies!Got stuff to make it again tonight but adding in broccoli,carrots,and peapods!

    Great job,Erin!You're going to love your new pressure cooker- so fun and so many possibilities!I hope that you love it just as much the second time around!

What pressure do you cook this at for the instant pot;low,medium,or high?

    High pressure!

    Thank you,I was looking for this…


I fOunD thIs to be very salty what couldbe used instead of soya

    Make sure that you are using a low sodium soy sauce..a lot of readers have had success with coconut aminos.I have heard that tamari sauce is also a close substitute to soy but I have not ever tried that.

What can i use in place of rice wine vinegar?

    A cider vinegar would probably work!

I Only want to make this for two people.Can i use 2 chicken breast instead?And if so does that cut the recipe in half with all the other Ingredients?Also what about the tIme for cooking?Thank you =)

    Sure- you could half the recipe!Or make a full batch and freeze the other half for an easy meal later!I would maybe shave off 5 minutes or so from the cook time!


I was so excited to try this but it was RIDICULOUSLY salty even with reduced sodium soy sauce.I wish I had read the comments first.

    Sorry to hear that you weren't completely satisfied with this recipe!Thanks for your feedback

    Agreed!


This was my first instapot recipe and it was delicious!It was actually more similar to Adobo than teryAki.I skipped the cornstarch slurry.Other than that,i followed the reCipe using bone-in frozen chicken thighs.Thank you for sharing!

    Way to break in the instant pot,Alice!They are so fun,aren't they?Excited to hear that you enjoyed this recipe!


l made this but found it very salty even though i used low sodium soy sauce.


这道菜是完美的!The only thing i changed was Based on the reviews from everyone.I used 1/2 cup of La Choy lite soy sauce and it had the perfect amount of salt to it.

    Great job,Courtney!Thanks for input on that!!


I agree with many of the other commenters on here that this recipe was WAYYY too salty.I followed the recipe exactly so not sure what happened.I ended up having to throw the entire thing away

    Sorry to hear that,Shardae.Thanks for your feedback


This is my absolute favorite recipe for my Crockpot express!!I usually use 4-5 lbs of chicken breasts and the sauce is perfect.

    Yay!I am super excited to hear that you love this recipe,Sam!Thanks for your feedback!


Hello!I tried this recipe and enjoyed it.i didn't have enough honey or soy sauce in my kitchen so i only used 1/2 cup soy sauce and just a little bit less than 2/3 cup honey.after reading some of the comments about the salty taste,i think having less soy sauce was a happy accident.it was so tasty!i had a mishap with the corn starch–i added the starch and water separately to the sauce and that led to some clumps that i had to get rid of.once i cleaned those out,i did the slurry properly and it worked well.looking forward to trying another one of your recipes.

    Great job,Manish!Way to go fixing your little mistake!Excited to hear that it turned out delicious with your amount of soy sauce and honey!

Really liked this recipe!I used reg soy sauce and it was a bit too saltY but thats my own fault.I found The recipe very easy to follow.Thanks so much!

    Thanks for your feedback,Cal!

Hi,this really sounds delicious.I'm making it tonight.
Do you think I can try this with pork too?

    Absolutely- I totally think that could work!I hope it turns out delicious- I'd love to hear!


Made this ladt night using 1 cup of low sodium soy sauce and its waaaaaaay too salyy.Im hoping i can salvage it without THROWING out all that chicken!Definitely need to cut down the soy sauce by at least half if not more.

    Salty.The typing wasnt working well.LOL!And i didnt intend to CAPITALIZE "throwing." I think i can salvage the chicken.Im going to rinse it in a colander,then re-make the sauce using this recipe but i will sub water for soy sauce since the chicken should retain plenty of salt.I will post my results!I think this recipe is good,but probably should reduce even low sodium soy sauce to about 1/4 to 1/3 cup.


Way too salty!I should have read the previous reviews.Maybe substitute some hoisin sauce for the soy sauce?will never make again.

I'm new to the instapot.When you mentioned serving with broccoli,did you cook it SEPARATELY or add it to the instapot as well?And if so,at what point?I plan to make this tonight.Thank you!

I am new to the Instapot.You mentioned serving this with broccoli.Do you cook the broccoli separately,or add it to the Instapot.If in the Instapot,at what point do you add it in?Thank you!

    Separately!


Tiffany,i just made this and it came out great!it was the first recipe i made with my instant pot.I even forgot the 1/2 cup water AND used regular soy sauce.It wasnt way too salty for me.But i will use a the water and less soy sauce next time to make it a little sweeter.

    Way to go,Jennifer!

My very first instant pot meal and it was perfect!I WOULDN'T change a thinG.Thanks!

Why so long fir the chicken breasts to cook?30分钟很长一段时间在一个高压锅。My other instand recipes Cook the chicken breasts for 10 minutes.


Delicious!I did cut back on the low sodium soy sauce because OF the comments.I should have kept it the way it was called for,it was a little too sweet without all the soy sauce but we all still loved it!

    Thanks for your feedback,Nikki!Excited to hear that you were still able to enjoy your meal with it being modified!

What abiut if you are using fresh chicken?How long to cook?

    It's all explained time wise in the instructions and notes part of the recipe!


would not recommend.Had to throw it out.

This was absolutely AMAZING!!!

How often is it that what you cook looks at least as good as the pictures on the recipe page – and tastes even better!!

Thank you SO MUCH for sharing!

    Fantastic!!!Super excited to hear that you loved this recipe so much,Laura!Thank you for your feedback


As written,this is inedibly salty,and a half hour is just too long to cook chicken in an instant pot;it comes out dry.(i did use low-sodium soy sauce).I tried it again with a half cup of soy sauce instead of a cup,and it was decent but very salty (and I like salt).I tried again with a third of a cup and it's not quite salty enough for me.It would probably be better with chicken cut up and sauteed,then cooked for more like 10 minutes than 30.

    Thanks for your input,Alan


Iused a brand of Soy sauce that trader joes makes: island soyaki and this i think cut down on salt issues.I did use part low sodium soy sauce buT the ratio of soyaki to soy sauce was Higher on the soYaki 188bet娱乐场side

    Good job,Gina!Thanks for your experience!

Why can't I print this recipe from your website?It requires me to install some recipe search program.Once I did,I couldn't find the recipe and now it has changed my default browser to yahoo instead of my preferred google.

    Hi Brenda- I am not positive what is going on for you..I have never had that issue before.I will look into that on my end of things..but you should be able to just simply print the recipe using the "print" button on the recipe part of this page!


aS WRITTEN,FAR TOO SALTY!!1 CUP OF LOW SODIUM SOY SAUCE IS 8,500 MG OF SODIUM.SPLIT 4 WAYS IS STILL OVER 2,000 MG PER SERVING.NOT SURPRISINGLY,IT WAS WAY TOO SALTY FOR US.WE ENDED UP RINSING OFF THE CHICKEN AND REMAKING THE SAUCE USING LOW SODIUM BEEF BROTH IN PLACE OF MOST OF THE SOY SAUCE.THEN IT WAS GOOD,THE HONEY WASN'T LOST IN A SEA OF SALT.

    Sorry for the bizarre mix of capitals and lower case.The comment box doesn't show capital or lower case on my machine?Very odd.

    Thanks for your feedback,Scott!


mADE THIS TONIGHT.USED 1/2 CUP SOY AND 1/2 CUP PINEAPPLE JUICE AS SOMEONE SUGGESTED.CHICKEN WAS FRESH,COOKED FOR 24 MINUTES.NOT SALTY AT ALL.DELICIOUS!

    Great job,Jill!Thanks for sharing your experience!


I only had 2/3 cup soy so added water to make a cup.Then added another 1/2 CUP water as the recipe calls for.Used chicken tenders and turned out great.I would not have used the extra water with low sodium soy but was fine for regular soy.Love my instant pot!!

    Great job,Lynda!Thanks for your feedback!


My whole family loves this!

    Way to impress the entire family with one easy dish,Anna!!Thanks for your feedback!


This turned out great and it was easy enough for my husband (Who can hardly make toast)to do on his own.

    Hilarious!!Sometimes toast is quite the task I am excited to hear that you guys enjoyed this dish!

Your chicken dishes are delicious.I really like the way you make this dish.Thank you for sharing this great cooking.

Can you cook the rice together with the chicken?

    I haven't tried that for this recipe because of the sauce.At the end of the recipe it has you remove the chicken and you add a corn starch slurry.I don't know how this would work well with rice added to that??

Made it tonight and it cane out tastIng almost burnt.Followed tHe recipe EXACTLY so idk what is wrong.

    I'm not sure what happened- I haven't had that issue before!

As I was making this recipe i was surprised by the amount of soy sauce and honey but perserved as per the recipe.I used the 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts called for (they weighed approx 2lbs).The sauce tasted good but there was no where near enough chicken.The recipe would have required at least 4 more chicken breasts to work.Another reviewer commented they used 4 to 5 lbs of chicken breasts.That makes sense.The sauce was so thick and sweet and over powering with the small amount of chicken that I ended up throwing most of it out.I might try another day with a whole lot more chicken.

    Sorry to hear that you did not have a great experience with this recipe as written.Thanks for your feedback


When i made this recipe I was skeptical about the 1 cup of soy sauce – low soduim or otherwise that's an insane amount of soy sauce,probably as much as a chinese restaurant would use in an entire dinner shift!After tasting the chicken,there was some promise there,but it was unbelievably salty – totally inedible.Then i reviewed the comments and saw that many,many people had the same issue to which tiffany replies "oh no!so sorry!" So tiffany,its time for you to change the recipe to reflect that 1 cup of soy sauce is insane.

I really really want to help you,but I myself faced this difficulty,I will also wait for the answer.
