  • Cook the rice according to package directions.
  • White the rice is cooking, generously season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Turn pressure cooker to browning or high saute mode. Add the oil and once it's shimmering, add half the chicken pieces, browning on both sides, about 7 minutes total. Remove to a plate and brown the remaining chicken pieces.
  • Return all the chicken to the cooker and add the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic, bay leaf, and onion. Add 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper to the pot.
  • Place lid on cooker and pressure cook on high for 8 minutes. When cycle is complete, quick release the pressure. Carefully unlock and remove lid. Remove the chicken pieces and cover to keep warm.
