  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed

  • 6 scallions, sliced, whites and greens separated

  • 1-inch knob fresh ginger, peeled

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry

  • 1 bunch broccolini, trimmed and halved

  • 6 mini bell peppers, quartered and seeded (2 cups)

  • 2 ounces Chinese egg noodles, broken into small pieces


  1. Heat oil in an electric pressure cooker on Sauté mode. Add chicken and cook, flipping once, until lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add scallion whites, ginger and garlic to the cooker and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Turn off heat.

  2. Add broth, soy sauce, Shaoxing (or sherry) and the chicken. Close and lock the lid. Cook on High pressure for 8 minutes.

  3. Release the pressure manually. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and shred with two forks. Discard the ginger and garlic cloves.

  4. Return the cooker to Sauté mode and add broccolini, bell peppers and noodles. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken. Serve topped with scallion greens.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
