1 Chicken Breast (cubed)
¾ cup Orange Juice
1 teaspoon Avocado Oil
1 cup White Rice (rinsed)
1 cup Filtered Water
Salt & Pepper to Taste

¼ cup Plum Vinegar
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Monkfruit
½ tablespoon Coconut Sugar
2 tablespoons Ketchup
¼ cup Frozen Cherries
¼ cup Frozen Pineapple
1 tablespoon Tapioca Flour
1 tablespoon Filtered Water

Combine the rinsed rice and water in a heat proof bowl that will fit in the Instant Pot. Set Instant Pot to sauté on HIGH. When hot, add oil, then add chicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until it develops some color (does not need to be fully cooked). Add orange juice and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Place in a trivet, then the bowl of rice/water on top of the trivet. Close the lid. Press cancel on the Instant Pot. Set to HIGH pressure for 4 minutes. Allow 10 minute of natural pressure and then perform a quick release. When the pin drops, open the lid, fluff the rice. Carefully remove the bowl and trivet. Mix tapioca flour with water (for sauce) in a small bowl. Then add all the sauce ingredients to the pot. Press cancel on the Instant Pot and set to sauté on HIGH. Bring to a simmer to allow tapioca mixture to thicken the sauce. Serve chicken over rice. Enjoy!
