Ingredients

2 - 2.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/2 cup coconut aminos

1/3 cup white vinegar

1 onion sliced

5 cloves garlic minced

3 bay leaves

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

salt and coarse black pepper

For serving:

cooked white rice or cauliflower rice

Directions

Select the saute mode on the pressure cooker for medium heat. Generously season chicken thighs on both sides with salt and pepper. When the display reads HOT, add olive oil to coat the bottom of the pot. Add half of the chicken thighs and cook for a few minutes on each side before transferring them to a plate. Repeat for the remaining chicken thighs. Turn off the saute mode.

Add aminos, vinegar, onion, garlic, and cayenne to the pot. Stir well and scrape up any brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pot. Return all chicken thighs to the pot in a single layer, placing them snugly on top of the onions. Top with bay leaves. Secure and seal the lid. Cook for 10 minutes at high pressure followed by a manual pressure release.

Uncover and select the saute mode. Keeping the chicken in the pot, boil for about 15 minutes to thicken the sauce. Remove the bay leaves. Serve the chicken and sauce, optionally with cooked cauliflower rice. Top with sliced scallions.
