What Does Sous Vide Mean?

To cook something using the sous vide method means to cook it in a water bath at a constant desired temperature. The temperature remains precise and cooks the food to the set temperature. It’s really hard to undercook or overcook your food using this method.

The chicken teriyaki can be cooked at the perfect temperature yielding juicy, tender chicken thighs. .

Benefits of Air Frying

instant pot air fryer lid Air fryers circulate hot air that ensures your food gets cooked from every angle to create a nicely browned, crisp outer layer and juicy interior. Chicken is especially good in the air fryer because of this. You get all the benefits of frying in oil without the excess fat or clean up.

Keto Teriyaki Marinade

Soy sauce provides the base for a teriyaki sauce; although, if you are trying to avoid soy based products, use coconut aminos or liquid aminos instead. To make this teriyaki sauce sugar free, use powdered erythritol. It works just like sugar and measures cup for cup.

Next ginger, sesame seed oil and sake are added to produce authentic teriyaki flavor. sugar-free teriyaki sauce poured on chicken thighs To thicken up the keto teriyaki sauce, we add xanthan gum. This will help coat the teriyaki sauce to the chicken and it will serve as a thickener too!

The sugar free teriyaki sauce is finished in the Instant Pot using the ‘Saute’ function. After the teriyaki chicken has been cooked under the air fryer lid, remove the chicken and the basket and pour in the rest of the marinade and ½ cup of chicken broth.

Saute for a few minutes until the sauce is bubbly and thickened. Pour teriyaki sauce over chicken and serve.

Meal Prep Keto Chicken Teriyaki

One benefit of cooking your proteins sous vide, is that they can be meal prepped ahead of time. Prepare your chicken with the Instant Pot Duo Crisp using the sous vide function. The day you want to serve it, finish them in using the air fryer setting on the Instant Pot.

I like to cook sous vide a bunch of chicken up on Sunday night. Then refrigerate until I want to have them. It only takes about 5-10 minutes under the Instant Pot air fryer lid to get them heated through and skin crisped up. keto chicken teriyaki in the air fryer basket of an instant pot
