Instant Pot Teriyaki Burger Ingredients

You won’t need much for this recipe! Head to the kitchen and make sure you have the following:

  • Chicken: You will need boneless, skinless chicken breasts to make your chicken patties.
  • Teriyaki sauce: You can’t have a teriyaki burger withot teriyaki sauce.
  • Nature’s seasoning: This is a blend of salt, pepper, onion and garlic. So, if you don’t have any, you can make your own, here.
  • Swiss cheese: I personally like swiss cheese on this burger, but you can use your favorite sliced cheese.
  • Canned pineapple: Make sure you grab the sliced pineapple so you can put pineapple slices on your burger.
  • Toppings: If you choose, you can top your burger with tomato, lettuce, and mayo.
  • Buns: I use sesame seed buns, but the Hawaiin buns would be delicious too!

What Does Teriyaki Chicken Taste Like?

Teriyaki chicken is sweet and savory. The teriyaki sauce caramelizes during the cooking process giving your chicken a sweet and savory flavor.

Can I Use Frozen Chicken?

Absolutely! In fact, one of the best things about your Instant Pot is that you can make just about anything whether you forgot to pull the meat out or not. However, you will need to increase the cooking time to 12 minutes. Be sure to check the internal temperature. Chicken needs to have an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. to be safe to eat.
