Growing up, I LOVED Chinese food. No place fancy, just the local junky Chinese place (probably loaded with MSG) was my go-to. Chicken and Broccoli lunch specials happened regularly, so when I say this is the real deal, I mean it! Forget take out with this homemade, easy version!

Want other Instant Pot recipes? Try these:


  1. Place chicken in the insert of your Pressure Cooker/Instant Pot.
  2. Add in broth and sauce ingredients. 
  3. Cook on manual, high pressure for 8 minutes.
  4. Turn the knob to quick release.
  5. Add in the slurry and mix to combine.
  6. Press off, then turn on the sauté function. Add in the broccoli on saute for about 5 minutes, stirring often, or until broccoli has softened and sauce has reduced slightly and thickened. Add apple cider vinegar and mix (this won’t add any vinegar taste, just brings out the flavor in the sauce).
  7. Garnish and enjoy. Serve with cauliflower rice or white rice!
