Sometimes you just need a quick and easy delicious dinner and this healthy Instant Pot Orange Chicken is it! If you’re not a big fan of curry, just leave that out. Keep all of the ingredients on hand so you can whip it up in a hurry. Serve it with rice, cauliflower rice or naan. This Instant Pot (paid link) Chicken is a little on the spicy side so if you want a mild orange chicken recipe add less chili garlic sauce (paid link). I like to use the Huy Fong Vietnamese Chili Garlic Sauce (paid link) but feel free to substitute others. Be sure to serve it with the cilantro, extra orange zest and toasted almonds on top, they complete the dish!
