Instant Pot Exotic Chicken Drumsticks

Delicious chicken recipe you make using your pressure cooker. It’s really quick and easy to make, using things you already have at your home! (Maybe except the apple cider vinegar)

I serve it with a plain basmati rice sine this dish is already full with flavor. You can use chicken thighs instead, but for this recipe I would recommend the drumsticks.
