Thanks so much for this recipe- so yummy!

We used spring hen pieces 1.5x recipe and it’s nice- will try to reduce the cooking time from 9 mins high pressure + 12 minutes natural release so chicken isn’t as over cooked.

Maybe reduce to 4 minutes or 5 minutes cooking plus 10 minutes natural release? Kindly let me know! Thank you!

I have a soy sauce question. I have Chinese dark soy so I am ok there but will Kikkoman work for the light soy sauce?

Would frozen chicken breast work for this recipe and if so, how long to cook? Thank you for creating Asian dishes for the Instant Pot.

Hi is it possible to make this with frozen chicken drumsticks? And If so, how long should I cook it for?
Thanks!

Samantha

Hi,

Can I use drum stick chicken? Would I need to adjust the pressure cooking time? Thank you!

Aileen

We made this and it was delicious! What should the cooking time be if we 1.5x the amount, eg 3 lbs chicken wings? Thanks!5 stars

Ken Wray

Recipe sounds delicious, wondering if maybe leaving the bone in on thigh’s and or Breast may add the flavor needed or expected, then removing the bone before serving.

Your recipes are wonderful and have enjoyed many. Thank you so much.

I love this recipe! It tastes just like how my mom used to cook it. Thank you so much for another wonderful recipe!5 stars

Just made this for hubby and me. It was DELICIOUS! It reminded me of my mom’s home cooking (parents were from Canton/Guandong, so we speak Toishan) and as with you, I loved the potatoes, too. Lol

Love your blog and it has helped me tremendously with my new Ultra 6 quart. Keep up the excellent work and thank you both!5 stars
