Pressure Cooker Garlic Chicken and Broccoli

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 medium carrots, julienned
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Hot cooked rice

Directions

  • Place the first five ingredients in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. In a large bowl, mix broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, vinegar, salt and pepper; pour over chicken mixture. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 3 minutes. Quick-release pressure. A thermometer inserted in chicken should read at least 165°. Press cancel.
  • Remove chicken and vegetables; keep warm. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with chicken, vegetables and hot cooked rice.
  • Freeze option: Place chicken and vegetables in freezer containers; top with sauce. Cool and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Microwave, covered, on high in a microwave-safe dish until heated through, stirring gently and adding a little broth or water if necessary.
