Honey Teriyaki Chicken Breast with Broccoli & Mashed Potatoes


4–5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, cut in 1-inch cubes

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

8 uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6–8 ounces each)

2 tablespoons kosher salt, divided

1 teaspoon ground white pepper, divided

1/4 cup teriyaki glaze

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons sesame oil (or olive oil)

2 teaspoons rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

1 head broccoli, cut in 1-inch florets

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1 tablespoon ground ginger


1    Place potatoes, water, and coconut milk in the pot. Place the Deluxe Reversible Rack (in lower steam position, without Deluxe Layer installed)in the pot over the potatoes.

2    Season chicken with salt and pepper and place on the rack.

3    Assemble pressure lid, making sure the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position. Select PRESSURE and set to HIGH. Set time to 5 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

4    Meanwhile, whisk together teriyaki glaze and honey in a small bowl.

5    In a separate small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, oil, vinegar and sesame seeds. Toss broccoli in the mixture and set aside.

6    When pressure cooking is complete, quick release the pressure by moving the pressure release valve to the VENT position. Carefully remove lid when unit has finished releasing pressure.

7    Remove chicken from rack and remove rack from pot. Mash potatoes with 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, butter, and ginger, using a mashing utensil that won’t scratch the nonstick surface of the pot.

8    Place rack back in pot in the lower steam position, and place broccoli on rack. Install the Deluxe Layer on the rack, then place chicken on it. Brush top of chicken liberally with half the teriyaki sauce mixture.

9    Close crisping lid. Select BROIL and set time to 15 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

10  After 10 minutes, flip chicken and brush with remaining teriyaki sauce mixture. Close lid to resume cooking.

11  After 5 more minutes, check chicken to see if your desired level of doneness is achieved. If not, cook up to 5 more minutes, checking frequently.

12  When cooking is complete, remove rack with chicken and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving with broccoli and mashed sweet potatoes.
