    I cooked it too long, but also just wasn’t a fan of the flavor.

    A nice quick meal and super easy to prepare. I tried mine with some thing chinese egg noodles for carbs. I took off one star because it's maybe a little too one dinensional. Next time I may add some chipotles and corn to ads some more texture.

    I’m really bad at following recipes, but I do like having a guide for ingredients and ratios. I made way more chicken, so I increased my quantities of liquids and added a packet of Filipino adobo seasoning along with the spices in the recipe It was delicious

    This is delicious! Probably my favorite Instant Pot recipe yet. So easy and flavorful. I'll probably use a little potato flour to thicken the sauce a little.

    Too salty, sauce didnt reduce at all, and the amount of chicken needs to be tripled for it to serve more than one person.

    not enough meat. doubling this alone can feed 1 decently hungry man. make sure to have sides if you want to feed 2.

    I like simple and good... this recipe hits both marks! I didn't wander from the recipe except that I used red pepper flakes instead of red chili. I love the ease of cooking from frozen but I had to cook an additional 5 min. to get past 165*F, but they were fork tender! I Yum'd this recipe to my favorite list. My rice was very impatient so I added some cornstarch slurry to get my gravy on! ;)

    This dish turned out very flavorful and easy to make! I did make a few changes as I marinated the chicken for a few hours, and I used bone-in chicken thigh and I think it brings out more flavor. Lastly, I cooked it for 15 mins instead of 11 mins because bone-in takes longer

    I wonder if I can get away with omitting the water seems like it would save time towards the end when you have to condense the remaining soup

    Flavor was amazing and the chicken was so soft and delicious especially because it’s dark meat. I don’t like my food very spicy but this was the perfect amount of heat to add a little flavor

    I used 3 chicken breasts and doubled the rest of the recipe. Served it with rice and honey glazed carrots. Really great meal!

    Delicious! I used 3 large chicken breasts inserted of thighs and doubled all of the other ingredients. Doubling the red pepper gave the reduction a little more kick than expected, but it was super tasty!
