The Benefits of an Instant Pot

An Instant Pot is a type of electric pressure cooker that cooks food up to 70% faster than other cooking methods. It has 7 functions: Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Yogurt Maker, Steamer, and Warmer. The Instant Pot can be used as a slow cooker or rice cooker at the same time.

Some of the benefits of an Instant Pot are: it saves time and money by cooking food in less time; it reduces the amount of energy needed to cook food; it has a stainless steel pot, which is durable and easy to clean; it is safer than traditional cooking methods because there is no risk of open flame or hot pot handles.

The Best Honey Orange Chicken Thigh

There are a lot of different ways to cook chicken thighs. Some people prefer to grill them, others prefer to fry them. But the best cooking method for chicken thighs is pressure cooking.

Pressure cooking will give you evenly cooked and tender meat, as well as a delicious sauce in just minutes. You can also make it with just one pot so it’s easier than ever!

  • 2 pounds (960 g) bone-in and skin-on chciken thighs
  • freshly squeezed juice of 1 orange
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1tablespoon crushed and sliced ginger
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) unsalted chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and sliced


Step 1

In an electric instant pot, combine garlic, ginger, onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, ketchup, orange juice, and chicken stock. Mix well. Add chicken thighs skin-side down. Cover the lid and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2

Flip marinated chicken over, so the chicken skins are facing up. Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Using the natural Release method, bring pressure to normal. Carefully unlock and open the lid. Using tongs, remove baked chicken thighs from the cooker and transfer them to a large plate.

Step 4

Switch the instant pot to saute mode and bring the marinade to simmer. Add 3 tablespoons of honey to sweeten the sauce. Mix well. Taste the sauce and add soy sauce and salt to taste.

Step 5

Return chicken thighs to the pot and cover with orange sauce.

Step 6

Place chicken thighs on an oven tray under the "Broil" function. Place sliced oranges over the chicken. Broil for a few minutes until oranges and sauce are caramelized. Serve hot.
