- 2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/3 cup tomato sauce
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- 2 tbsp brown sugar minced
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp rice wine
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 orange zested
- Chop your chicken breast into small cubes.
- Pour oil into your Instant Pot and press “Sauté”.
- Add chicken cubes and cook for 2 minutes, until they brown. Stir constantly to make them brown on each side and preventing them to stick to the pan.

- Lock your Instant Pot and cook at high pressure for about 5 minutes.
- Let the steam release naturally.
- Open the lid and press “Sauté” again.
- Add cornstarch to thicken the sauce and stir. If your chicken has dried too much, add some more orange juice.
- Cook for about 2 minutes, until the sauce has reached the desired texture with no lumps.
- Remove the orange zest and serve your chicken chops topped with their sauce.
