Pressure Cooker Whole Chicken Recipe:

1 Uncooked Chicken (cook time will depend on how much your chicken weighs – 6 minutes per pound)
2 T. cooking oil
1 t. thyme
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. smoked paprika
1/2 t. black pepper
2 t. salt
1/2 cup water or broth

Cooking instruction using an Instant Pot (I’m using a DUO 6qt V2):

Press the Saute button and adjust to the “more” setting. Add in your cooking oil. When hot, place the chicken in pot with the breast side down. Brown each side for 6-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pot. Turn off the saute mode and add 1/2 cup of water to the pot. Place trivet in the pot. Sprinkle top, bottom and inside of the chicken with all of the spices and place onto the trivet. Lock the lid and set the pressure valve to the “sealing” position. Press the “Poultry” button. (“Manual” or “Pressure Cook” on high pressure would work fine as well) Set the cook time for 6 minutes per pound that your chicken weighs (a 5lb chicken would be 30 minutes, etc.) After cook time finishes allow the pot to NPR for at least 10 minutes. Open the pot and enjoy as-is or transfer to a foil lined pan and broil in the oven for 4-5 minutes per side for a crispy skin. Enjoy!

Cooking Instructions using a Cosori (I’m using a 6qt 8-in-1):

Press the Browning/Saute button, adjust to the “more” setting and press the ON/Start button. Add in your cooking oil. When hot, place the chicken in the pot with the breast side down. Brown each side for 6-7 minutes. Remove chicken from the pot. Turn off the saute mode and add 1/2 cup of water. Place trivet in the pot (optional-the trivet that comes with this Cosori model probably won’t work for this recipe). Sprinkle top, bottom and inside of the chicken with all of the spices and place onto the trivet. Lock the lid and set the pressure valve to the sealing position. Press the “Poultry” button and set the cook time for 6 minutes per pound that your chicken weighs (a 5lb chicken would be 30 minutes, etc.) After cook time finishes allow the pot to natural pressure release for at least 10 minutes. Open the pot and enjoy as-is or transfer to a foil lined pan and broil in the oven for 4-5 minutes per side for a crispy skin. Enjoy!
