Perfect Instant Pot Chicken Recipe

61/100 by 114 users
Perfect Instant Pot Chicken Recipe

You will need:

  • 1 thawed whole chicken
  • Olive Oil
  • Chicken Seasoning (your choice)

Seasonings I used:

  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder

INTRUCTIONSStep One: Prep your thawed chicken. Take out of packaging remove innards if any. Some brands leave chicken extras inside the chickens some do not. DO NOT WASH OR RINSE YOUR CHICKEN! Washing Chicken spreads bacteria you do not want to do that! Step Two: Turn on your Instant Pot’s saute option and wait for it to heat up. Add a tablespoon of Olive Oil to the bottom of your instant pot and put your chicken breast side down in the instant pot with a light coating of seasoning.Sauteing whole chicken This helps give the skin some color and keeps it from turning into a mushy mess while pressure cooking your chicken.After 3-4 minutes flip your chicken and saute the other side for an additional 3-4 minutes. Step Three: Remove Chicken from your Instant Pot and add more seasoning if you want to the breast wings and thighs of your chicken. I like lots of seasoning so there is no such thing as too much. Step Four: Add trivet and one cup of water in your pot. Place chicken breast side up on to the trivet. Put the lid on your instant pot press pressure cook option and set time. This is going to depend on the weight of your chicken.Cooking times for pressure cooker chicken:Pressure cooking chicken time is 6 minutes per pound of chicken.I cooked a 4 lb chicken this time. So 4 Lbs X 6 minutes = 24 minutes on the timerWhole chicken in Instant PotIt takes the Instant Pot about 10 minutes to come to pressure. So my 4 LB chicken took 34 minutes to cook.You can do a quick release when time is up and remove your chicken or do a natural release which is what I do for 10 minutes then a quick release.This just makes the chicken more juicy and fall apart tender. I think with a quick release the meat tends to be more dry.Perfectly cooked rotisserie that is not rotisserie! Pressure cooker chicken recipe.This article and recipe adapted from this site
