Not sure where I got this recipe. It may have come from one of my cookbooks, or I might have found it on line somewhere (possibly Fagor's or Presto's website). Note: 8 minute cooking time does not include the browning time.

I am new to pressure cooking and this was the first time I cooked chicken in the pressure cooker. The dish turned out great and was very easy to make. I added some chilli flakes for heat (my personal taste). Thank you for the recipe. I will make this again.
