Pressure Cooker Aloha Chicken

I'm all about easy weeknight dinners and this is the perfect one! It only has 4 main ingredients, comes together in no time and tastes great, too! I call it Aloha Chicken because even though it calls for BBQ sauce, it also has pineapple juice, giving it a Hawaiian flavor. It is so yummy and extra delicious over rice. Your whole family will love it!

Pressure Cooker Aloha Chicken

4 chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

kosher salt and black pepper

1 Tbsp. olive oil

2 tsp. garlic, minced

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1 (8 oz.) can pineapple chunks or tidbits, juice drained and reserved

1 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 Tbsp. water

1. Generously season chicken with salt and pepper. Select the Sauté button on the pressure cooker and heat oil in the pot. Add chicken and sauté for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute more.

2. Turn pressure cooker off and stir in 1/2 cup BBQ sauce and 1/2 cup pineapple juice to the pot. (Add water to equal 1/2 cup if there is not enough pineapple juice.) Secure the lid and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. When done, do a natural release for 10 minutes and then quick release any remaining pressure.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water and add to pot. Select Sauté and simmer until liquid thickens. Add pineapple chunks or tidbits to the chicken and stir to combine.

4. Serve warm over prepared white rice.
