  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 8 oz. can water chestnuts drained
  • 8 leaves of butter lettuce


  • Make sure the stainless steel insert is in your Instant Pot. Press "saute" setting and wait 1 minute. Add vegetable and sesame oil to insert and let heat up.
  • Add ground chicken to Instant Pot and cook, breaking down with wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper. Add onion and garlic. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Press "cancel/off" button.
  • Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth and deglaze the bottom of the pot.
  • In a small mixing bowl or measuring cup, whisk together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, ginger and sweet chili sauce. Pour mixture over chicken and stir well.
  • Close the lid, set valve to sealing position (newer models do it on their own). Make sure the IP is set to cook at HIGH pressure. Press "manual" setting and set timer to 4 minutes.
  • When the timer is done, let the pressure release naturally for at least 10 minutes.
  • Carefully open the lid away from your face. Stir chicken.
  • Add chopped water chestnuts to chicken and stir.
  • Place up to 1/4 cup of mixture onto each lettuce leaf. Serve immediately.


If you don't have ground chicken on hand, you can slice boneless skinless chicken breast into slices, partially freeze it (20 to 30 minutes in the freezer should do it), then pulse in the food processor until you reach desired texture. If you don't like or have chicken on hand, you can also make this recipe with ground turkey.
