Here’s how I cook a whole frozen chicken in my Instant Pot!


1 Whole Chicken with giblets removed (mine was 5lbs)
1-2 T. of cooking oil
1-2 t. salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. smoked paprika
1/2 t. dried thyme
3 garlic cloves (optional)
1 lemon, sliced (optional)

Cook on Manual setting for 10 minutes per pound (mine was 5lbs so I cooked it for 50 minutes). Let NPR for at least 10 minutes. Optionally, broil 3-4 minutes per side on a foil lined pan to crisp up the skin. Strain and save broth from the pot for soup or other recipes! Enjoy!

I used my 6qt Instant Pot (IP-DUO60 7-in-1) in this video. You can find it on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/2ii6tIK (affiliate – thanks!)
