How to Cook a Whole Chicken in the Instant Pot

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Ever wondered how to cook a whole chicken in the Instant Pot? Prepping a chicken at the beginning of the week is perfect for meal planning for the week!

I always wondered why people love whole chickens so much. It wasn’t until I cooked one in my Instant Pot that I realized why people loved it so much!

Now if you have never cooked chicken in your pressure cooker, go to the store right now, pick up some chicken, and begin cooking.

I purchased an Instant Pot a couple of years ago on Black Friday. At the time, the pots were about $100+, which just seemed outrageous for an appliance that I didn’t even know how to use. But on that day the price dropped as low as $59!

I try to cook at chicken at lease once in a week in my Instant Pot.  It has become a weekly ritual that saves me so much time in the long run.  I love to use this chicken for salads, enchiladas, sandwiches, and to just eat it with BBQ sauce.
