Instant Pot Shoyu Chicken


Mckenna Maduli and I have known each other for more than 20 years.  She does not know this, but I am very proud of all her accomplishments and what she does for Hawaii’s talent. She recently won an Emmy Award for her show Talk Story and works hard to promote Hawaii. She grew up in Kalihi where she graduated from Roosevelt High School. She later moved to LA to pursue a career in entertainment. She has had gigs with MTV, Billboard Live, and Access Hollywood. If she has a familiar face its probably because she was on-air with Hawaii News Now before hosting her very own show called Talk Story on K5. We hardly get to see each other these days but this week we are happy to have her in the kitchen making her instant pot shoyu chicken.
