Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Whole Roast Chicken

Why are my pals calling themselves Potheads?
It wasn’t the form of query I anticipated to be asking myself whereas altering diapers, and yet a couple of months ago it was really anything I was mulling over. Turns out, they’d simply found the magic that's the Instant Pot – phew!

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Whole Roast Chicken

Now, I’ve had a power cooker for a couple of years, but I hadn’t constructed such a stable courting with it that I named it or anything. (My gradual cooker’s identify is Betty, if you’re wondering.)

Anyway, the lid to my stovetop power cooker simply so occurred to smash when the 7-in-1 Instant Pot was on sale, so I decided to provide it a whirl. Oh. My. Goodness. I didn’t detect how a lot I was babysitting my antique power cooker till I pressed a couple of buttons on my Instant Pot and walked away for an hour.

Since then I’ve been been on a venture to determine out further methods to make use of it. This “roast” hen is considered one of my latest favorites. It’s so tender, and I may have it on the desk with broth already effervescent away (in the Instant Pot, of course) in lots less time than it used to take me simply to roast the chicken. That skill there’s further time for Llama Llama Red Pajama and further snuggles on the cease of the day, which is effective through way of me.

Note: This recipe has been up to date to remove the will for flipping midway through.

1 complete pastured hen (about 4 pounds)
1 tbsp coconut oil
sea salt
black pepper
additional seasonings (the hen pictured was seasoned with lemon pepper)


Turn on the sauté placing and upload within the coconut oil. When the oil heats up, location the hen in breast-down and brown. I transfer mine round a couple of occasions to brown the facets as well.

When the hen is good and brown, turn it over and location it on the trivet/rack that comes together with your pot. Add 1/2 cup water to the backside of the pot and sprinkle the hen with seasoning.

Lock the lid into location and set the valve to “sealing.” Select “Poultry” after which growth the variety of power from common to high. (If you've got the 7-in-1, you possibly can do this through way of urgent the “Adjust” button.) If your hen is 4 kilos you will desire to set the time for twenty-four minutes. If it is smaller or larger, calculate how a lot time it ought to prepare dinner through way of multiplying the quantity of kilos through way of 6 minutes. So, a 3 pound hen could be 18 minutes and a five pound hen could be 30.

Allow the Instant Pot to depressurize naturally after which serve.source
