Instant Pot® Chinese Black Pepper Chicken with Celery

14 August 2020

Quick, easy, and delicious Chinese black pepper chicken made in the Instant Pot®. Just like takeout. Pressure cooking time is just 4 minutes for either fresh or frozen cut-up chicken pieces. I use Foster Farms® frozen chicken pieces I get in a bag at Costco. I’ve experimented with the timing many, many times and 4 minutes is just right. Just follow my directions below. Serve with rice or noodles.

Instant Pot® Garlic-Sesame Chicken Thighs

23 July 2020

We love garlic and sesame sauce on chicken wings, and this is an entree version made with chicken thighs. Pressure cooking the chicken with the sauce infuses the chicken with serious flavor. We like to serve this with white rice.

General Tso’s Tofu

6 July 2020

Crispy tofu coated in a spicy, sweet, and salty sauce. I’m not a vegetarian but this is the best General Tso’s dish I’ve had. I like to serve it over rice and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

Tofu Satay with Peanut Sauce

3 July 2020

Indonesian-style vegan satay marinade seasons skewered chunks of tofu before they’re grilled. Serve with peanut sauce to replicate this Asian street food as an appetizer or, if desired, serve over rice for a meal.

Japanese Curry

3 July 2020

Japanese curry is different from Indian or Thai curries. It is more of a brown stew and it can be mild or spicy, depending on your tastes. The curry roux, from no heat to very spicy, can be bought at any international grocery store. It can be served over white rice or with udon noodles.
This recipe is very flexible; it can easily be made for more or less people. It can also be frozen (don’t put the potatoes in).
