Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken Recipe
To make this Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken, you’ll only need 5 ingredients! You’ll need:
- chicken – you’ll need a 4 – 4 1/2 pound whole chicken. This size of chicken cooks perfectly with the cooking times provided. I prefer to use an organic chicken whenever possible.
- seasoning – you’ll combine Stone House Seasoning, canola oil, and paprika to form a paste that is then rubbed or brushed onto the chicken. This seasoning adds color and flavor to the cooked chicken.
- chicken stock, broth or water – you’ll need a liquid to cook your chicken in the Instant Pot. You can choose between your favorite of chicken stock, broth or water.
Start by setting your Instant Pot to Saute. Drizzle half of the canola oil into the bottom of the Instant Pot container. As the Instant Pot is heating, stir together your Stone House Seasoning, 1/2 of the canola oil, and the paprika in a small bowl to form a paste. Rub or brush half of the paste all over the breast side of the chicken.
Using tongs, place the chicken breast side down into the Instant Pot. Brown the outside of the chicken, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, carefully brush the remaining paste onto the bottom side of the chicken.
Once the breast side of the chicken has browned, using the tongs, carefully remove the chicken from the Instant Pot.
Place the chicken onto the trivet with handles.
Pour the chicken stock, broth or water into the Instant Pot.
And carefully lower the trivet with the chicken back into the Instant Pot.
Seal the Instant Pot and cook at high pressure for 25 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally, about 15 minutes. Check the temperature of the chicken by inserting an instant read meat thermometer into the side of the chicken breast closest to the bone. The chicken breast should register 165º F.
Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot using the handles of the trivet. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and serve warm.
