Instant Pot Orange Ginger Chicken

I found another great Instant Pot recipe - Orange Ginger Chicken from Our Best Bites.  This was one of the best Orange Chicken recipes I have made.  It is a very easy recipe to make and one the family will ask for again and again.

Instant Pot Orange Ginger Chicken
Our Best Bites
Ingredients
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (frozen OR thawed)
1/3 cup orange marmalade
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons water, broth, or orange juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 teaspoons cornstarch
Cooked rice

Instructions
1. Place chicken breasts in pressure cooker (see notes below for alternate cooking methods).
2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together: marmelade, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, water, ginger and garlic. Pour mixture over chicken. Secure lid on pressure cooker and cook at high pressure for 15 minutes (15 minutes is the cooking time once under pressure.) When finished, release steam according to pressure cooker instructions and use an instant-read thermometer to make sure meat has reached 165 degrees. (If it has not reached temperature, simply return shredded chicken to sauce and simmer until cooked through.)
3. Remove chicken breasts and place on a cutting board. Bring remaining sauce in pan up to a simmer (use the saute feature on an electric cooker). Combine cornstarch with 3 teaspoons cold water and then pour mixture into pan. Simmer until sauce is thickened and the turn off heat.
4. Shred chicken and return to pot with sauce.  Serve over rice.

Yields about 4 cups shredded chicken
