Cooking A Whole Chicken In An Instant Pot

Have you heard of an Instant Pot?  This pot has become my favorite appliance in the kitchen.  I love it for a few reasons.  I purchased an Instant Pot with 7 features (pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté/browning, yogurt maker, steamer and warmer) and feel I could eliminate a few appliance on the counter with just this one.  With the warm season upon us, we have utilized the Instant Pot instead of the oven.  I love how FAST this pot cooks everything.  Cooking a whole chicken is very quick, simple and easy to do!  In the past two weeks, we have used our instant pot to make stews (grabbing frozen meat and having a meal ready in 30 minutes is AMAZING), bone broths (cooks in two hours what I spent cooking for 2 days) and steaming vegetables.  The Instant Pot continues to amaze me!

This recipe is for how to cook a whole chicken in an instant pot.  If you do not have an instant pot, but a pressure cooker it will still work.  However, your process for getting the pressure will be different, please follow your pot instructions.  The cook time should be the same.

Onion Chuck Roast

I’m not a pot roast kind of girl.  To be honest, I make one and nibble from it.  My husband enjoys pot roasts and it will supply him with a few lunches throughout the week.  Well needless to say, my plan did not work on this recipe.  I ate not one, but two helpings of this onion chuck roast recipe.  We cleaned up all 2lbs of meat in one sitting.  I’m not sure if that is something to be proud of or embarrassed on.
