Instant Pot Orange Chicken

Instant Pot Orange Chicken – Make at Home and Skip the Restaurant

August 13, 2021

This Instant Pot Orange Chicken is so easy to make and even if you are new to the Instant Pot, you can get a delicious meal in only 10 minutes!

It’s best to use fresh oranges to make the juice, but this recipe also works with store-bought orange juice. You can buy orange chicken sauce at the store, but I wouldn’t recommend that. The sauce you make at home is ten times more delicious and healthier!
