4boneless skinless chicken breasts
1398ml canpineapple chunks with juice14 oz
3tablespoonssodium-reduced soy sauce
pinchof black pepper
Add pineapple chunks with juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt and pepper to the Instant Pot (mine is a 6 quart). Stir until combined.
Add chicken breasts on top of the pineapple.
Put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the valve to sealing. Set to Manual, high pressure, for 10 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure and start counting down.
When the cook time is over, turn the Instant Pot off. Let pressure release naturally for 5-10 minutes and then open the valve to release any remaining pressure.
Remove the lid and turn the Instant Pot to saute, and adjust to less heat. Stir together the corn starch and water and stir into the sauce (you can take the chicken out to do this but it's not necessary!). Cook and stir until the sauce has thickened, and then turn off.
Serve chicken immediately over rice, noodles or with a side of veggies.
