- 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil divided
- 1/4 cup soy sauce

BROWN THE CHICKEN.
- In a small bowl, combine
1 tablespoonof cornstarch with the salt. Toss the chicken pieces in the cornstarch mixture until it is coated evenly. Select Sauté on the Instant Pot and adjust the heat to Medium. Add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook for about 4 minutes, turning occasionally, or until golden brown.
PREPARE THE SAUCE.

FINISH THE SAUCE.

1 tablespoonof sesame oil and the honey and stir quickly to combine. Select Sauté on the Instant Pot and adjust the heat to Low. In a clean small bowl, whisk the remaining 1 tablespoonof cornstarch into the water until it is smooth. Stir this slurry into the chicken, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, or until sauce reaches the desired consistency.
FINISH THE RECIPE.
- Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
