Step 1

Make Honey Garlic Sauce: Heat up Instant Pot using “Saute Normal” function. Wait until the indicator says “HOT”. Melt 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter or vegetable oil in Instant Pot. Add in minced garlic, then saute for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Pour in 2 tbsp (30ml) regular soy sauce and ⅓ cup (113g) honey. Stir to reduce & thicken the honey garlic sauce a bit for 2 - 3 minutes. Add ¼ cup (60g) ketchup to a container, then mix in the honey garlic sauce. Taste and adjust the sauce accordingly. *For Reference: we added another 1 tbsp (15g) ketchup to the honey garlic sauce to fully balance the flavors. Set aside and let it cool to thicken a bit.

Step 2

Pressure Cook Chicken Thighs: Season the chicken with kosher salt and ground black pepper. Add 1 cup (250ml) of cold water and a trivet in Instant Pot. Place 6 - 8 chicken thighs on the trivet. *Note: Try not to overlap the chicken thighs too much. Close lid, then turn Venting Knob to Sealing position.For Smaller Bone-in Chicken Thighs (110g - 120g each): Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 7 minutes + Natural Release for 12 minutesFor Larger Bone-in Chicken Thighs (~200g each): Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 9 minutes + Natural Release for 12 minutesOpen the lid carefully.

Step 3

Apply Sauce & Broil in Oven or Air Fryer: Carefully set the chicken on an oven tray, then generously apply the honey garlic sauce all over the chicken. Option 1 - Oven or Toaster Oven: Place the chicken thighs on an oven tray under the "Broil" function (or the highest temperature setting) for a few minutes until the honey garlic sauce is beautifully caramelized.Option 2 - Duo Crisp or Air Fryer Lid: Place the air fryer basket with the tray on the middle rack in the Instant Pot. Layer the chicken thighs on the air fryer tray in Instant Pot. Place the air fryer lid on the Instant Pot. Press the "Air Fry or Broil" button, set temperature to 400°F, and cooking time to 20 minutes. *Pro Tip: It'll take roughly 7 - 11 minutes + preheat time. You can open the lid to check the progress.

Step 4

Serve: Garnish your delicious Honey Garlic Chicken with freshly chopped parsley.
