You’re probably looking at that picture above and thinking, “that looks like a rotisserie chicken!” But guess what, it was made in an Instant Pot! Crazy, right?!?! You probably read the title so already knew that, but get this, it took me less than 20 minutes of effort to make. This chicken has blown my mind.

My husband is non-discriminatory when it comes to chicken and enjoys eating all parts. Really he’s non-discriminatory with meat in general. Me, I’m a chicken breast girl. If it weren’t for my husband, this blog would probably be named something along the lines of CakesAndChickenBreasts.com.

In any case, I try to make whole chickens every once in a while. Honestly though, they’re kind of intimidating to me. However, when I learned that you can cook a whole chicken in an Instant Pot, I got really excited.

The seasoning and marinade is adapted from a delicious Epicurious recipe that is one of my go-to summer cookout meals. I liked it so much that I wanted to use it on a whole chicken. It was a good call.

This recipe is pretty darn easy to make. The marinade takes just a few minutes to throw together, you marinate the chicken for 2 hours, saute in the Instant Pot for 5 minutes, and then cook it up on high pressure for 10 minutes. Serve it with some salad or veggies, and you have a perfect, super easy, but delicious meal!
