Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper to taste.
Place the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey and sesame oil in an Instant Pot. Stir to combine.
Place the chicken in the Instant Pot and stir to coat it with the sauce.
Seal the Instant Pot and set it for high manual pressure for 8 minutes.
Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then manually release the rest of the pressure.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the chicken from the pot. Place on a plate and cover to keep warm.
Turn the pot to saute mode. Whisk together 2 tablespoon of cold water with the corn starch.
Once the sauce comes to a simmer, whisk in the corn starch. Cook for 1 minute or until sauce has started to thicken.
Turn off the Instant Pot. Return the chicken to the pot. Spoon the sauce over the top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions, then serve.
