  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 3 TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 1 TBS minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp sriracha hot chili sauce, or more if you like it spicy
  • 1 TBS cornstarch
  • 2 TBS water
  • 1 TBS sesame seeds, for garnish
  • 4 stalks green onions, chopped
  • 15-18 Bib lettuce or romaine leaves


  1. Place the chicken in the Instant Pot.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, tomato paste, rice wine vinegar, garlic, 1/2 cup water, sesame oil, onion powder and Sriracha. Pour over chicken. 

  3. Seal the IP lid, select 'manual' and adjust time to 10 minutes.

  4. When cooking time is up, allow 10 minutes for the Ip to 'natural release' te pressure. After 10 minutes release the remaining pressure. Carefully open the pot top away from your body. Remove chicken, leaving the sauce in the IP. Shred chicken with two forks; set aside.

  5. Turn IP to 'saute' mode and bring liquid to boil (should take 3-4 mins). In a small bowl or cup, mix 2 TBS water with cornstarch, then pour into boiling sauce mixture, stir, and cook 1 minute to let thicken. Return shredded chicken to the IP and stir to coat. Turn pot off.

  6. Serve chicken in lettuce wraps and top with sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Enjoy!
