  • Whisk together the honey, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar and oil in the instant pot.
  • Add in the chicken and set the instant pot to manual for 15 minutes and 10 minute natural release time.
  • Once the pressure has released opened the pot and remove the chicken.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the cold water and cornstarch to create a slurry. Turn your instant pot to saute high and whisk in the cornstarch mixture to the pot. Allow this to boil to thicken the sauce.
  • While the sauce is thickening shredded the chicken with two forks.
  • Once the sauce has thickened remove 1/2 cup of the sauce from the pot and you can save this sauce for another dish.  Add the chicken back into the pot and stir to coat. Turn off the pot and top the chicken with the sesame seeds and onions.
