  1. Place orange juice, soy sauce, rice vinegar, salt, ginger, chili garlic sauce, and coconut milk into the pressure cooker pot, whisk to combine.
  2. Add chicken to the pot.
  3. Scoop marmalade on top of the chicken – see note for why I don’t stir it in.
  4. Place trivet over the chicken and place a metal pan on top (like a cake pan or a leak proof springform pan).
  5. To the cake pan add rice, chicken broth, and salt.
  6. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes.
  7. When cooking is complete, use a natural release.
  8. Fluff rice and set aside.
  9. Place chicken on a plate and shred into large chunks.
  10. Combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water.  
  11. Press saute to bring orange sauce to a light simmer, then whisk in cornstarch slurry until it thickens, about 1 minute.
  12. Return chicken to the sauce and stir to coat.
  13. To serve: Scoop rice onto a plate and top with chicken and sauce.  Finish with a large scoop of Mango Black Bean Salsa.
  14. Optional serving suggestion: serve orange chicken with salsa in lettuce wraps for a lighter meal or fancy appetizer
