Easy Pressure Cooker Recipes: Honey Sesame Chicken

I resisted getting a pressure cooker for a long time. To me it was the thing my grandma used to do canning and my mother-in-law used to make delicious boliche en salsa (the Puerto Rican version of pot roast). But over the last couple of years, pressure cookers have gotten crazy popular! Everywhere I look I see Facebook friends talking about what they made in their pressure cooker and I find lots of easy pressure cooker recipes online and in magazines. SO, I figured it was about time I give it a try and guess what – I like it. And what I like best so far is this yummy and easy honey sesame chicken pressure cooker recipe.

I owe a thanks to Tristar Products for sending me their Power Pressure Cooker XL and encouraging me to finally try a pressure cooker! The Power Pressure Cooker XL is GREAT choice because it saves time, energy, & money and cooks even the most inexpensive cuts of meat to juicy perfection. It has a removable inner pot that is dishwasher safe for easy cleanup. I have the 10 quart version that is so big it can even cook a turkey!
