Instant Pot Mongolian Chicken Recipe
This is a very easy recipe for Mongolian chicken you can make using your Instant Pot.
You first want to press "Saute" on your Instant Pot. Click "Adjust" and then click "More" to hit Saute More. This means there will be more Saute for this meal.
Once the Instant Pot says "Hot" you can add the oil and then chicken. Allow for the chicken to saute for three minutes. Stir it a couple of times.
Once the chicken becomes golden a little, use your water to deglaze the bottom of the Instant Pot. Make sure no bits are stuck to the bottom. If there are bits, scrape them off.
Add the minced ginger, soy sauce, garlic, carrots, garlic powder, brown sugar, water, and red pepper flakes into the Instant Pot.
Stir this altogether, and then close the lid on teh Instant Pot. Seal the valve and press "Manual" to cook this at high pressure.
Cook this for five minutes, and then allow for a natural pressure release once the time is up. That should take about 10 minutes.
Turn the Instant Pot off and quick release the rest of the pressure.
Open the lid, click "Saute" and put it on "low."
In another bowl, add the cornstarch and water together. Combine until smooth and then add this to the Instant Pot.
Make sure to stir this all in the Instant Pot with the rest of the food. Click "Saute" and go to "low" once again.
Cook on low for a few minutes and stir until your sauce begins to thicken up.
Turn the Instant Pot off and then serve this over rice and green onions. You can add in the sesame seeds if you wish as an optional ingredient topping.
