• You must halve the recipe for a 3-quart cooker.
• Pressure-cook the chicken ahead of time. Once the thighs have dried on the baking sheet for 20 minutes, transfer them to a bowl, cover it, and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Bring the thighs to room temperature before frying them.
• For crunchier skin, put about 1 cup all-purpose flour in a paper bag, add the cooked thighs, seal, and shake to coat them. Transfer them out one by one to the hot skillet, knocking off the excess flour before they get into the oil. Fry as directed.
• For a Korean-inspired dish, toss the cooked and fried thighs with up to 1/2 cup sweet Thai chili sauce before serving.
