Spicy Honey ChickenIngredients:

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2 lbs
  • Glaze
  • 2 t granulated garlic
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 C Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Cider or Balsamic Vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees or preheat gas grill or prepare briquets for grilling
  • Place chicken thighs in Instant Pot. Do not add liquids, the chicken will produce plenty of broth for the Spicy Honey Sauce.
  • Place lid on and press the POULTRY button.
  • When Instant Pot signals that the chicken is finished cooking, remove lid and place chicken on a baking sheet. Then place chicken in oven or on the grill for 15 minutes or until skin is crispy.
  • Remove chicken from oven or grill and set aside in a baking dish to keep warm.
  • While chicken is in the oven or on the grill, strain the chicken broth into a bowl, place broth back into the pot, push SAUTE button.
  • Add honey, Balsamic or Cider vinegar and seasonings to the chicken broth. Stirring occasionally, simmer the sauce  until it thickens and coats a spoon like syrup, may take from 10-15 minutes.
  • After sauce has thickened, turn pot off, adjust seasonings to your taste and pour the sauce over the chicken, coating each piece evenly.

We serve with multi-grain rice and a salad or vegetable.

Lemon Chicken Dinner

  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 1-2 T. Olive oil
  • 2 T. Flour
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1/2 Lemon, sliced
  • 1 1/2 T. Brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. Ketchup
  • 1/2 T. White vinegar
  • 1/2 t. Lemon zest
  • 1/2 Lemon, juiced
  • 1/3 c. Frozen lemonade concentrate


Mix together salt and flour, coat chicken. Pour oil into Instant Pot liner. Arrange lemon slices in single layer in bottom of pot. Place chicken breasts on top of lemon slices and turn pot on ‘saute’. Brown chicken on both sides while singeing lemons into chicken. When done browning, place chicken breasts into stainless steel or ovenproof bowl that fits in Instant Pot. Mix remaining ingredients together to make sauce and pour over chicken. You can discard the lemon slices or use them on top of the chicken dish for presentation. You can add your choice of fresh vegetables to this bowl at this time, if you like, such as green beans, broccoli, asparagus, etc.

Next, in bottom of Instant Pot, with pan drippings, add 1 cup of rinsed, white jasmine rice and 1 1/2 cups of water. Stir and place rack inside of pot and place bowl with chicken, sauce, and vegetables on top of rack. Place lid on Instant Pot with vent in sealing position and press the ‘rice’ button to steam your whole meal. When program is complete, your entire meal is ready.

I’ve included the thermometer reading in the photo so that you could see for yourself that the chicken more than reached proper temperature for poultry even in this short of time.
