Pressure Cooker 365 Day 24: Honey Mustard Chicken
On November 17, 2012 I married the love of my life and met a new love: My pressure cooker!
To spread the love I’m using my pressure cooker every day and sharing the recipes on my blog.
This week’s challenge ingredient for What’s Cooking Wednesday on Patchwork Times is honey. Because boneless skinless chicken breasts were on sale a few weeks ago this recipe was a perfect match.
Honey Mustard Chicken
Adapted from this Key Ingredient recipe
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 C chicken broth
- 1/4 C prepared mustard
- 2 T honey
- 1 T brown sugar
- 1 t seasoning salt (like Lawry’s)
- Place rack in bottom of pressure cooker. Pour broth into cooker. Place chicken on rack.
- Whisk together remaining ingredients and brush on to the chicken.
- Lock pressure cooker lid in place. Bring to full pressure. Cook for 10 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally or wait 10 minutes and perform a quick-pressure release.
I made oven-baked fries while this cooked. I scrubbed and sliced the potatoes and set them to soak in cold water. Then I prepared the chicken. As I waited for the pressure to rise I dried the potatoes and tossed them with olive oil. When the pressure cooker reached full pressure I put the potatoes in the oven for 10 minutes. Then, I flipped the potatoes and they finished cooking while the pressure cooker cooled. The tasks dovetailed nicely.
A non-pressure-cooking-related side note…
If you were reading this post on a computer at my school it would be blocked because to the word “breasts.” My coworker and I have been in rounds with the tech department over this. As a foods teacher I could not find anything that referred to chicken “breasts.” And my coworker, who teaches child development, could not have her students complete an online search to price out baby items like a “breast” pump. They finally unblocked “breast.” But not “breasts.”
How did her students find the information they needed? They found their way around the filters by searching “human milking machine.”
