Honey Dijon Chicken in the Pressure Cooker

It's Tuesday, recipe day.  I don't know if you are familiar with www.pepperplate.com, but my daughter and I use it.  It is a way to easily share recipes or keep your favorites all in one place.  This recipe is perfect for the pressure cooker, which we both love.  The Electric Pressure Cooker, My Favorite Small Appliance  It can also be used for the slow cooker and the oven, just modify the cooking time.  This is the pressure cooker version which takes less than 30 minutes from start to table.
