For Topping:

  • Green onion & sesame seeds


1. Add chicken pieces in the bottom of your Instant Pot. Season with pepper

2. Combine garlic with honey, onion, soy sauce, oil & ketchup in a smallsized mixing bowl. Pour the prepared mixture on top of your chicken, then
cover your Instant Pot with the Lid.
