  • 1 package PERDUE® FRESH CUTS™ Diced Chicken Breast (1 lb) thawed
  • 1/2 cup Low Sodium Chicken Stock
  • 3 tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger minced
  • 1 Garlic Clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper diced
  • 1 1/2 cups Broccoli cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Whole Cashews
  • Salt + Pepper to taste


  1. In the bowl of the Pressure Cooker add the chicken stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, honey, vinegar, garlic clove and ginger. Stir 

  2. Open the PERDUE® FRESH CUTS™ Diced Chicken Breast package and season with salt and pepper 

  3. Add the chicken into the pot. Stir, close the lid and cook on MANUAL HIGH PRESSURE for 6 minutes

  4. After the 6 minutes, Release the pressure (QR) and press the saute button

  5. Remove 1/2 cup of the sauce and mix it with the cornstarch. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the chicken and mix. It will thicken almost instantly 

  6. Add the broccoli and red pepper. Place the lid, turn off the machine and let the dish rest for 3 minutes. This will allow the broccoli and pepper to soften without overcooking
