Take out is over rated (and over priced)! Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Drumsticks are the perfect solution for those nights you are craving take out but don’t have the time or budget!
Because I am always on a budget, we tend to eat chicken drumsticks a lot! They are usually the cheapest pieces of meat you can buy and make for some of the quickest weeknight hassle-free dinners. Plus we don’t eat a lot of pork or seafood, so our dinner choices are usually limited and drumsticks tend to go over well.
Until recently I always made drumsticks in the over with some homemade shake and bake or even just barbecue sauce. That was before I got the new love of my life, the Instant Pot! Now, I have made it my mission to transform every recipe into an Instant Pot recipe!
All you need are a few simple ingredients to pull of these delicious Instant Pot Chicken Teriyaki Drumsticks! The dish does call for marinating overnight but you are pressed for time you can just do 30 minutes and they still turn out awesome. Even if you have picky children, you will be pleasantly surprised how well these go over (I was!).
You can sever these up with a side of rice as an Asian inspired meal or with veggies and a salad for a meal more on the healthy side. No matter what you choose, these are a going to be a win on your weeknight meal plan.
