  1. Chop onion and paprika into large cubes. Cook the chicken in large pieces.
  2. Set "sauté" mode when the inscription “hot” appears, pour sesame oil, fry the chicken from all sides. It does not have to become golden or fully cook, just fry quickly.
  3. Add onion, pineapple, and paprika to the chicken, pour coconut milk and add spices. Now is the best time to add chili peppers if you want to make the dish spicy. Fry all together for few minutes.
  4. At this time beat the ketchup with pineapple juice and apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Grate the ginger and add to the sauce. Add spices and herbs to taste.
  5. Pour the chicken and vegetables with sauce, bring to a boil and cancel the “Saute” mode.
  6. Close the lid, move the valve to “sealing” and set high pressure for 5 minutes. After that, depressurize sharply, to do this, turn the valve to the “venting” position.
  7. Your sweet and sour chicken is ready! Serve with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
