Growing up, on days my parents wanted an extra treat for dinner or perhaps simply too lazy busy to cook, we’d drop by a Siu Mei Store 燒味舖 (Roasted Meat Shop).

Stepping into the shop, I’d be immediately mesmerized by the sweet & warm roasted barbecue fragrance.

Looking through the glass cabinets of glistening, juicy, beautifully caramelized hanging pieces of meat, I just couldn’t stop myself from drooling!

Oh yes~ Siu Mei is my weakness…from Siu yuk 燒肉 (Roasted Pork) to Char siu 叉燒 (BBQ Pork) to Siu ngo 燒鵝 (Roasted Goose) to Soy Sauce Chicken 豉油雞I just want them all!!

Instant Pot Soy Sauce Chicken and Rice Step-by-Step Guide

Soy Sauce Chicken and Rice One Pot Meal

Ingredients for Instant Pot Soy Sauce Chicken and Rice

  • Regular Soy Sauce (Chinese: 生抽) – also known as “Light Soy Sauce” – “light” does NOT mean low sodium
  • Dark Soy Sauce (Chinese: 老抽) – darker, thicker, less salty soy sauce than regular soy sauce – it’s mostly used for adding color & different flavor profile to the final dish
  • Sichuan Peppercorn (Chinese: 花椒) – you can leave this out if you can’t find it

Tools for Instant Pot Soy Sauce Chicken and Rice

1

Make Master Stock Mixture


First, add 3 tbsp regular soy sauce, ½ tbsp dark soy sauce, 4 garlic cloves, 3 star anise, ½ tsp Sichuan pepper, and ¾ cup cold water into the pressure cooker.

2

Pressure Cook Chicken and Rice


Then, partially submerge the chicken legs into the Master Stock Mixture.

Add a tall steamer rack (as shown in left photo below) and place a stainless steel bowl filled with 230g Jasmine rice and 250ml water (as shown in right photo below).

*Pro Tip: If you rinse the rice before cooking, be sure to drain well and ensure the water-to-rice ratio is accurate. (Roughly reduce 3 tablespoons from the 1 cup of water)

Pot in Pot or Pan in Pot Method to cook Instant Pot Chicken and Rice

Close the lid and turn the Venting Knob to Sealing Position.

  • Pressure Cooking Method: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 8 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release

After 10 minutes of Natural Releasing, carefully turn the Venting Knob to Venting Position to release the remaining pressure.

3

Is there a rule of thumb for instant pot chicken drumsticks cooking time? There is such a wide range of time in the recipes I’ve seen. I understand cooking in liquid is less time than cooking on a rack with 1 cup of water? Would you say generally 8 mins for cooking in liquid and 15 mins for cooking on a rack? Thank you for sharing your expertise.5 stars

Hi. If I want to use whole chicken leg, how long should I cook it?
Thanks.

Cherrie

I can’t rave enough about how awesome this recipe is! I am a student studying overseas and I miss the taste of home so much. Got myself an instant pot and I made this for dinner tonight- but since there’s only myself, I guess I have got my mealprep done for the week! THIS IS SOOOO GOOD THAT I ‘TELEPORTED’ HOME :’) Thank you for the amazing recipe! Also, may I know if I were to reduce the amount of meat, do I have to reduce the sauce and time to cook it? And is it possible to substitute it… Read more »

Yummm this looks delicious, I want to try this but have a regular pressure cooker – i’m a little confused with the cooking time .. so cook for 8 minutes then 10 minutes natural release … do you mean leave it for 10 minutes after its finished before turning off? (sorry for the dumb question!) thankyou 🙂

Pepe

Hi, do you happen to have the nutritional information for this dish? My family is on a special diet so I need to know approx carb/fat and calorie count. Thanks

Will it be ok to use light soy sauce only? Can I add salt if I have a “less sodium” soy sauce? I appreciate your blog! Thank you for the recipes!
