    I put everything in the pressure cooker on high for 11 minutes, quick release, then shredded the chicken. It was perfect, and I'm picky.

    Used chicken breasts (didn't have thighs on hand), dark soy sauce, and frozen cubes of garlic and ginger. For oil, I used stir fry peanut oil (actual peanut flavor and a hint of sesame). Went just a touch heavy on the sugar and ginger (2 frozen cubes).

    Surprising! A recipe with so few ingredients and I thought it was delicious. I think the key was sugar and cooking on low for 30 minutes. The chicken/sauce almost caramelizes. I served this over rice and loved it. My husband didn't care for what he thought was too strong of a flavor, though. I would rate this a 5 and he would rate it a 3. Guess who won? ;)

    This was oh so quick and oh so good, although decidely sweet! I used 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs (for 2 people) and made the full amount of sauce, using dry sherry. My chicken was done ahead of schedule, TG for my instant read thermometer. After removing the cooked chicken thighs, I turned up the heat to reduce the sauce in a few minutes and was pleased with the amount of sauce to drizzle over the chicken, rice and steamed veggies. Thank you for sharing. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
