Chinese Red Cooked Chicken (Pressure Cooker)

1 fryer, cut up
2 Tbsp oil
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp sugar
juice of 1 fresh lemon
1 bunch green onions, finely chopped
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp Chinese sesame oil

Put the oil in the pressure cooker pot and lightly brown the chicken
pieces. While they are browning, mix together the water, soy sauce,
ground ginger,sugar, and fresh lemon juice and set aside. Place
about 2 Tbsp of the greenest parts of the green onions into a small
dish and set aside. Mix the cornstarch and water together until
smooth and set aside. When the chicken pieces are nicely browned,
pour in the soy sauce mixture and add the white and light green
parts of the green onions. Stir into the chicken to coat the pieces
with the sauce.Place lid on pressure cooker tightly. Put pressure
regulator weight in place. Leave heat under cooker on high until
the weight begins to jiggle. Lower heat immediately to a level that
keeps the weight just barely moving. Time from this point on for
12 minutes. Remove pot from heat and cool.When the pressure has
been reduced, open the pot and place back on the burner. Using a
slotted spoon, remove the chicken pieces to a serving dish. Stir
the cornstarch-water mixture once more and, while gently stirring
the sauce, pour the cornstarch mixture into the sauce to thicken.
Cook for 1 or 2 minutes on low heat and then add the sesame oil.
Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle the rest of the green
onions over the top.

Notes: Serve over fluffy white rice. Tender buttered broccoli
spears with some sesame seeds sprinkled over the top are a tasty
