Tender bite size chunks of chicken in a sweet, sticky sauce. A quick, easy to make meal that the whole family will love.
Scott, from Houston recently emailed me asking for help converting a Honey Sesame Chicken slow cooker recipe to a pressure cooker recipe. The recipe was easy to convert and looked like a recipe that my family and my readers would like, so I decided to make it as well.
I’m so glad I did. It came together quickly and my family loved it. There was a little bit left over that I had for lunch the next day. I thought it was even better the next day.
Give this one a try and let me know what you think. Thanks Scott for suggesting it.
