Ingredients

·          2 lbs chicken breast or thighs cut into 1-2 inch pieces
·          2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Sauce:
·          1 cup orange juice no sugar added
·          1 tablespoon ginger grated
·          6 cloves garlic* minced
·          1 tablespoon rice wine or dry white wine**
·          1/2 cup tomato sauce optional
·          ¼ cup granulated sugar
·          ¼ cup brown sugar
·          ¼ cup lite soy sauce
·          1 tablespoon Sriracha***

Cornstarch Slurry:
·          2 tablespoons cornstarch
·          2 tablespoons orange juice
Garnish:
·          4 green onions sliced
·          extra orange zest

Instructions

1.     It is important for the chicken not to have any extra moisture, dry it with a few paper towels and after that cut the chicken into 1-2 inch chunks.
2.     Heat up your pressure cooker: press Sauté -> click on the Adjust button -> select More to get the Sauté More function, which means that the food will be sautéed over medium-high heat. Wait for the Instant Pot indicator to read HOT.
3.     Add the oil to the hot Instant Pot, add the chicken and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring a few times. Cook until it just starts to get golden. When sautéing it, stir constantly so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
