  4. Drain out all liquid, then add garlic, ginger and half the sauce. Stir to combine.
  5. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL , then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  6. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 0 minutes.

    Zero cooking time is not technically zero cooking time – the food will cook while it is coming to pressure and during the release time.

    This dish was delish! We put the chicken in for 3 minutes and it came out great. Also used half the soy sauce it called for.

    Hi JoanMoMc,

    That is correct. Most of the cooking process happened on saute but it will also cook while natural pressure releasing.

    Easy but a little too much ginger for my liking. It tends to overpower the other flavors. Qith less ginger, it’s pretty good.

    I set mine for 1 minufe instead of 0 and it almost cooked it too much. So i would set it at 0 as it builds the needed pressure.

    This was really easy and really good! I followed all the directions except I added 1 tsp of cornstarch mixed in water to the sauce at the end to help thicken it.

    Really tasty. I replaced the water chestnuts with toasted slivered almonds for crunchiness. Otherwise i followed the directions and it turned out great. I’ll definitely make it again.

    Made it with ground turkey and added more of my fav veggies. Very good! Lots of juice you have to dump…I used it for cooking some rice! This recipie could just as easily be made stovetop.

    Tasted great – but my chicken disnt have much liquid, and i got my first ever “burn” notice. Next time I will put all the sauce in at once.

    I made it with ground turkey, omitted the sauce, but added the onion, garlic and ginger as indicated in saute. Added salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper while browning. After pressure cooking as indicated I added red salsa, put it in a whole wheat tortilla, added avocado slices, sprinkled cheddar cheese and Voila! Husband absolutely loved it! And i made it somewhat healthier. Win Win

    Family loved this. I used turkey meat and added roasted slivered almonds for a crunch. Absolutely loved the sauce. Drizzled more Hoisin on the finished wraps. 0 cooking time was perfect for the ground turkey.

    It was so good and my husband even loved it as well. It was very flavorful. I did get my first burn notice, so next time I’m going to add extra sauce.
