I love Asian food! We have it for dinner at least once a week. Chicken Teriyaki is one of my all time favorite Asian dishes. It’s sweet, savory, and goes well with just about anything. There are so many delicious slow cooker chicken teriyaki recipes out there, but sometimes I want my food fast and with minimal clean up. Enter the Instant Pot!
One of my biggest role models gave me the Instant Pot for Christmas and I am now obsessed! It’s the biggest time saver! Cooking for two people can be challenging, but the Instant Pot lets you customize your cooking time and gives you the freedom that other pressure cookers can’t.
This recipe is so simple to make and takes just under 10 minutes. Simply whisk together the sauce, pour over the chicken, and turn your instant pot on. Check back in 5 minutes and your chicken is done. Best of all, there is only 1 “pot” to clean!
Now lets talk about one of the key ingredients in this dish- soy sauce. I cook with soy sauce frequently, but feel like it often gets a bad rep. By using 1/2 tsp. Kikkoman Soy Sauce in place of 1/2 tsp. table salt, the sodium content of the recipe is cut by 1000 mg! Now, I’m not saying to go dowse your food in tons of soy sauce, but substituting it in sauces, marinades, etc. can help you to cut back on the sodium levels in food. Kikkoman offers a variety of less sodium products: Less Sodium Soy Sauce, 50% Less Sodium Gluten-Free Tamari Soy Sauce, Less Sodium Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce, and 50% Less Sodium Gluten-Free Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce.
