Benefits of Healthy Eating with the Help of an Instant Pot
Instant Pot is a small kitchen appliance that cooks food in a fast and efficient manner. It is perfect for people who are always on the go and do not have time to cook their meals. This article will explore how an instant pot works, its benefits, and the various recipes you can make with this tool.
To get started, let’s take a look at how an Instant Pot works. The Instant Pot has six functions: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, steamer, and warmer. The Instant Pot is able to do these things because it has an inner cooking pot that can be used as a pressure cooker or as a slow cooker depending on what you want to cook. It also has two metal racks that are used for steaming or cooking rice or vegetables under pressure.
The Instant Pot we recommend is the 6-quart model with a manual mode, which is also referred to as pressure cooking or high-pressure mode. This type of Instant Pot has a maximum pressure setting of 15 psi (pounds per square inch). The high-pressure function on this model is able to reach temperatures up to 240°F under its automatic mode. You don’t need a specific type of container—the Instant Pot can use glass, ceramic, or metal. You don’t need to fill the pot with liquid before starting cooking—you can add extra liquid during the cooking process if necessary for desired results.

- 2 pounds (960 g) of skin-on chicken drumsticks
- 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup (250 ml) honey
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) soy sauce
- 1 cup (250 ml) chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a large mixing bowl, combine the garlic, salt, black pepper, honey, and soy sauce. Add chicken, toss well and marinate for at least one hour.
Heat the olive oil in an electric instant pot turned to saute mode. Add diced onions and saute, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the marinated chicken along with the marinade.
Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 30 minutes.
Using the Quick Release method, bring pressure to normal. Carefully unlock and open the lid. Using tongs, remove cooked chicken drumsticks from the cooker and transfer them to a serving plate. Pour the sauce over. Enjoy!
