To use different types of chicken
Chicken Breast- Change the time of pressure cooking to 1 minute.
Whole Chicken Thighs- Change the time of pressure cooking to 6 minutes. After the pressure cooking, cut it into bite sized pieces and put back in the instant pot.
When sautéing before pressure cooking, always make sure the burnt stuck bits on the bottom of the inner pot are scrapped away with a wooden spoon or a silicon spatula. If not done, the instant pot will give the burn sign even with enough liquid.
Worcestershire Sauce
You can replace this with soy sauce but the taste will not remain exactly the same.
