Pressure Cooker Instructions

  • Place chicken in pressure cooker and sauté for 2 minutes on each side. Then, press cancel.
  • Add all remaining ingredients (except tapioca flour, broccoli and green onions) to the pressure cooker. Secure lid and pressure cook on high for 4 minutes.

  • Take 2 tablespoons of the juice inside the pot and add to a small bowl. Then, whisk in remaining tapioca flour until combined.

Stovetop Instructions

  • First, in a Ziplock bag, add 2 tablespoons tapioca flour, chicken and pepper. Toss until chicken is fully coated.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil and chicken. Next, cook for 3 minutes on each side.
  • Then, add all remaining ingredients (except tapioca flour, broccoli and green onions) to the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Remove 2 tablespoons of the juice inside the skillet and add to a small bowl. Then, whisk in remaining tapioca flour until combined.
  • Next, add this sauce to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
  • Lastly, serve with cooked broccoli and green onions if desired.

Notes

  • Chicken is done cooking when it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Tapioca flour really thickens the sauce.  I suggest adding a little to start and adjusting to your desired preference.
  • The longer the sauce simmers/sautés, the thicker it will become.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat in a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil.
