Instant Pot Whole Chicken

Instant Pot Whole Chicken, cook a rotisserie style whole chicken in your Instant pot or other electric pressure cooker in less than 30 minutes!

Here are some simple step by step by step directions for cooking a whole chicken in your Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker, the full recipe is at the end of the post.

  1. First, make sure your chicken is fully defrosted and that you’ve removed the giblets so that it will cook through properly.
  2. You do not need to rinse the chicken (this only spreads potentially harmful bacteria in your sink and kitchen and does not eliminate it) but you can carefully pat it dry with a paper towel.
  3. Now you can apply the simple spice and herb rub which is made up of paprika, thyme, salt, pepper and oil. This adds a little flavor to the chicken and gives the skin a pop of color, otherwise the chicken looks very pale when it’s cooked.
  4. If you want to add even more color to the finished chicken then you can carefully brown the chicken before you cook it under pressure. You’re never going to get crispy skin like you will with an oven roasted chicken as we are using steam and pressure too cook it so the skin cannot crisp up in the same way.
