Instant Pot Smoky Honey Cilantro Chicken in 12 minutes
One of my favorite instant pot recipes yet. Adapted from Mels Kitchen Cafe. So easy and delicious, ready to build a number of meals in just twelve minutes!
Servings: 8 -10
- 1 cup salsa verde
- ½ a large white onion diced (I used 170 g)
- 2 tbs honey
- 1 tbs liquid smoke sold at grocery stores near barbecue sauce.
- 5 cloves garlic I always use the frozen dorot cubes.
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1.5 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp cumin
- ½ tsp paprika
- 2-3 pounds thawed or fresh chicken breasts or tenderloins I always prefer tenderloins.
Mix together everything but the chicken.
Combine sauce and chicken in instant pot. Close and set to manual for 12 minutes. I let the steam release naturally for ten minutes or so and then open it (if it doesn't open easily, wait a few more minutes).
Shred, toss in juices, and stir in ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro.
OR cook in slow cooker on low 'till tender about 6-7 hours.
