What’s The Difference Between Soy Sauce And Teriyaki Sauce?
Soy sauce is a condiment made from soybeans, wheat, water and salt. Soy sauce is often used in traditional Chinese cuisine and is great for marinades, stir fry, dressings and dips. Teriyaki sauce on the other hand has a sweeter flavour as it is a combination of Soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger.

hOW tO make This chicken teriyaki instant pot recipe
Place chicken cubed into the instant pot. Pour in one cup water. Set the valve to the sealed position. Push the manual or pressure cook button and set timer to 8 minutes or 10 minutes if your chicken is frozen.
Once the Instant Pot stops counting release the pressure. This is called quick release.
Drain the liquid from the chicken. Add in the onions and mushrooms.
Turn off your Instant Pot and turn on the saute mode. Set the lid on top of the instant pot. This allows the onions and mushrooms to steam and become tender. Stir often.
In a liquid measuring cup mix together teriyaki sauce, garlic, and cornstarch. Whisk well. Pour this over the chicken, onions, and mushrooms while on saute mode. This will thicken fast. Once the Teriyaki sauce starts to thicken turn off the saute mode.
Add the black pepper and stir well. Serve over steamed rice.
