Instant Pot Chicken

I keep looking at these pictures and thinking, “that chicken looks like a rotisserie chicken!” But guess what, it was made in an Instant Pot! So 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.

Chicken

My husband is non-discriminatory when it comes to chicken. He enjoys both white meat and dark meat. Really, he’s non-discriminatory with meat in general.

But me, I’m a chicken breast girl. If it weren’t for my husband, this blog would probably be need to be named something along the lines of “Dessert and Chicken Breast Recipes.”

In any case, for the sake of my husband and children, I try to make whole chickens every once in a while.

Honestly though, cooking a whole chicken is kind of intimidating to me. So, when I learned that a whole chicken can be cooked in an Instant Pot, I got really excited.

Seasoning and Marinade

The seasoning and marinade for this recipe is adapted from a delicious Epicurious recipe. I actually use that recipe quite frequently for grilled chicken in the summer.

If you do not have Herbs de Provence, My Recipes has a recipe you can use to make it here.

Easy to Make

This recipe is super easy to make with minimal hands on time. The marinade takes only a few minutes to make.

The chicken is then marinated for 2 hours, followed by a 5 minute saute in the Instant Pot.

Finally, it’s cooked on high pressure for 10 minutes followed by a 10 minute natural release.

That adds up to about 20 minutes of work some delicious chicken!
