2 cups prepared barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1 large green pepper,s eeded and diced. (optional)

Heat 1 Tbls. oil in the cooker. Brown the chicken well on both sides in small batches, adding extra oil as needed. Set browned chicken on a platter. Pour off left over oil if desired.

Place the sauce, onions and green pepper in the cooker. Stir well, taking care to scrape up any browned bits sticking to the bottom. Add the reserved browned chicken plus any juices that have collected on the platter stiring so that the chicken is well coated with sauce.

Lock the lid in place and over high heat bring to high pressure. Adjust the heat to maintain high pressure and cook for 9 minutes. Reduce pressure with a quick release method as directed with your pressure cooker. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to allow any excess steam to release.
