    Insta Pot switched from meat/stew program to “burn” after being on about 8 minutes. Took off lid and stirred seeing no food burn indicated. Decided to select pressure cook instead. Same “burn” indicator happened. At the momeNt, I have it on slow cook.

    Needs something. Good but a little bland. Maybe peanuts and a few veggies like water chestnuts or snow peas maybe lomein instead of rice.

    I accidentally used 1/2 cup of wster instead of 1/4. It was still very flavorful! Loved this dish.

    I used 2 lbs. of breast cutlets and only 18 minutes in the pressure cooker, instead of the 25 suggested. And the liquid smoke is too overpowering for us so I used just one tbsp. With those changes, the result was perfect.

    Not a good recipe. Cook time is too long. And the liquid smoke and BBQ sauce reccomended was horrible.
    Not off to good imperssion of this Instant pot App. Had to throw it out and run to get take out…

    This recipe was ok , chicken was very tender and the sauce was nice serve over basmati rice and a stir fry veggies on the side. Wasn’t a recipe that wowed me or my family . Good for a change.

    When I made this I added fresh ginger, garlic, sciracha, some green onion, carrots and celery. Since there were some comments that the time was too long I thought that by adding some veggies that would help.
    But I would say the meat was cooked to death! Overall the flavor was good. I would definitely recommend a shorter cooking time.

    I used 3 medium sized chicken breasts instead; browned them 5min each side. I forgot to add the water. Oops. It came out just fine; the water would have thinned out the sauce too much for me. Next time I’ll quarter a small onion and saute while browning the chicken. My mom is finniky, she ate the whole breast.
