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.
