I have been so excited to have my Instant Pot, I have been cooking away! I have been cooking things like Instant Pot Italian Beef Dinner and Instant Pot Shredded Buffalo ChickenIt has been so fun coming up with recipes and figuring out what works and doesn’t. Let me tell you! This recipe works! My husband couldn’t believe how delicious it is.

After I started cooking my brown rice in my Panasonic SR-MS103 5-Cup (Uncooked) Rice Cooker, White, I started throwing together the ingredients of the Orange Chicken in the Instant Pot. It was done before the rice was! I was drooling with anticipation. It smelled so good.
If you have never had Orange Chicken, it is sweet and salty with bites of orange flavor…. And it is GOOD!!!!!!
I served it over a bed of brown rice with a side of steamed broccoli. BAM! Magic in the kitchen. It was all gone in minutes. That is why I suggest you double the recipe if you make this. You will want leftovers the next day!
Try it for yourself. You will love it. You will laugh at how easy it is to make. But you can tell your family you cooked all day in the kitchen making this. If you don’t tell, I won’t! xoxo
15 Minute Instant Pot Orange Chicken Recipe
- 4 chicken breasts Do not use thin breasts. They will dry out.
- 3/4 cup favorite dark sweet barbecue sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
- 2 tbs soy sauce
- 3/4 cup orange marmalade
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- chopped green onions for garnish
Chop chicken breasts into hearty bite size chunks.
In Instant Pot, add in chopped chicken, barbecue sauce, and soy sauce.
Cook on manual high for 4 min.
When done, fast release steam.
Take 1/4 cup of the barbecue chicken sauce out of instant pot and mix with cornstarch in a small bowl. (This prevents lumps. Cornstarch will thicken sauce.)
Add cornstarch broth mixture back into Instant Pot.
Add orange marmalade. Mix well.
Change setting on Instant Pot to sauté setting and sauté for 6 min or until sauce thickens.
Allow it to rest 5 minutes before serving. This will thicken sauce also.
Garnish with green onions. Serve over rice, noodles or by itself.
