Chicken teriyaki is a favorite dish for family meals. It’s easy to cook, healthy and everyone loves it. Making it in an Instant Pot makes it even easier. Even better, this recipe uses the “pot in pot” cooking method to cook both the rice and the chicken in the same pot.
The chicken and sauce ingredients go in the pot first. Then the trivet or steamer rack is placed on top. The rice cooks in a heat-safe bowl or baking dish on top of the trivet. It’s like magic – rice and teriyaki chicken cooked separately but in the same pot at the same time. That means less hassle and fewer dishes to clean. And with the pressure cooker, it also means the meal cooks in less than half the usual time.
