Easy, sweet, spicy, sriracha chicken in the instant pot! Can a quick weeknight dinner get any better? Nope!


  • 1/3 cup sriracha
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 chicken breasts, or 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs


  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro leaves and stems


  1. Add add the sriracha, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup of water and garlic to instant pot. 
  2. Mix it up until combined.
  3. Add the chicken.
  4. Turn the instant pot to High Pressure for 10 minutes.
  5. Once it’s done, either do natural release or manual release.
  6. Take the chicken out of the instant pot, and shred it on a cutting board. I usually use two forks to shred it.
  7. If you want the sauce thicker, then follow these next steps. If not, just return the chicken to the sauce in the pot, and you are done!
  8. Mix the corn starch with the water in a bowl. 
  9. Turn the instant pot to Saute.
  10. Once the sauce it bubbling, add the corn starch water mixture, and stir until thickened.
  11. Add the chicken back to the pot.
  12. Serve with jasmine rice, and sprinkle cilantro leaves on top! 
  13. Enjoy!
