Sesame Orange Chicken & Rice in the Power Pressure Cooker XL

With still more inspiration from Pressure Cooking Today, I discovered another recipe that’s definitely a keeper! Here’s what I did.

sesame orange chicken on rice


    • 3 1/2 lb chicken tenderloin pieces
    • 1/2 c water
    • 1/2 c soy sauce
    • 1/4 c brown sugar
    • 2 T apple cider vinegar
    • 2 t toasted sesame oil
    • 1 t sriracha
    • 1 c orange marmalade


  1. Place the water, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil, sriracha, orange marmalade, and brown sugar in the inner pot of the pressure cooker.  Mix.
  2. Add the chicken, toss to coat, and lock the lid onto the pressure cooker.
  3. Select the MEAT/CHICKEN button.  When the timer reaches 0, vent the steam, remove the lid, and serve!


The original recipe called for cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but I tried mashed potato granules as a substitute.  It didn’t work though, so next time, I’ll just cook the sauce down a bit to thicken it.

I might also consider adding the rice and some chicken stock to this recipe rather than making the rice after I make the chicken.  Since I’ve seen other recipes for my pressure cooker that use that procedure, I’ll bet it turns out well.
