Since the advent of the grocery store rotisserie chicken, I hardly ever roast my own chicken anymore. However, one day while waiting for my order to be filled at the meat counter at Whole Foods, I noticed that whole chickens were on sale for a really good price. This inspired me to try my own roasted chicken in the Instant Pot. I knew it wouldn’t come out with crispy skin, but it would be fast!
That’s what we have here: a simple recipe for a roasted whole chicken, cooked in the pressure cooker. The whole thing was done in under an hour. And the best part is that I was left with really delicious broth that I was able to use for another recipe later in the week. Plus there was leftover chicken that also went into another meal that week. Overall, I was thrilled with the result and I hope you are too.
I’m embarrassed to say that I forgot to take any pictures of this chicken! Eek! I think you know what a roasted chicken looks like and you can, in fact, see the finished product if you watch the instructional video. You can even skip right to the end to see the finished dish and I won’t be offended.
I just love it when YouTube captures a lovely shot of me with my mouth open. I suspect my video editor could fix this! This picture makes it look like I’m working way harder than I actually am. In reality, I’m just running my mouth. 🙂
