Ginger Soy Chicken - easy and delicious Asian braised chicken with ginger and soy sauce. This recipe takes only 4 main ingredients and 8 minutes in Instant Pot.


–– 1 1/2 lbs. chicken wings and drumsticks (you can use chicken breast or chicken thighs) – ▢1 tablespoon oil – ▢1 inch ginger, peeled and sliced into pieces – ▢2 tablespoons soy sauce – ▢3 tablespoon sweet soy sauce or Indonesian kecap manis (I used ABC Kecap Manis) – ▢3 dashes ground white pepper – ▢1/2 cup water – ▢1 teaspoon sesame oil – ▢1 stalk scallion (cut into 2-inch lengths)

Step 1

– Chop the drumsticks into two to three pieces.

Step 2

Turn on the Saute mode on your Instant Pot. As soon as the pot is fully heated (to make sure the chicken doesn’t stick to the pot), add the cooking oil. Pan sear the chicken until they turn slightly brown (if they stick to the pot too much, you may use a non-stick skillet for pan-searing or skip this step.)

Step 3

– Add the ginger and saute a little bit. Add the soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, ground white pepper, sesame oil and the water. Cover the pot and select Manual and set to High pressure for 8 minutes.

Step 4

When it beeps, turn to Quick Release. When the valve drops, remove the cover carefully, stir in the scallion and serve immediately. If the sauce is too watery, you may turn on Saute mode and reduce the sauce for about 1 minute.
