Store: Once completely cooled, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.Freeze: Transfer the cooled chicken to a freezer-friendly bag and keep frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight.Reheat: If you’ve got a big batch, you can reheat it on the stovetop on low heat. If you’re just reheating a single portion, the microwave is a great option. You may find you need to splash a bit of water just to add some liquid back into it if it’s gotten too thick.Chicken: This time I used chicken tights, but you can use drumsticks or chicken breast if you prefer.Honey: You can substitute 2 tablespoons of honey for 3 tablespoons of brown sugar.How Do You Do Quick Release on Instant Pot?Once your Instant Pot’s cooking time is over, it will beep, and then it will start counting up on the keep warm mode.
