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.

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.

  1. Hi!
    I don’t have an Instant Pot yet. I have though about getting one for a long time. So forgive me if ask a silly question. After the 25 minute high pressure cooking, do you turn off the Instant pot & let it sit for 15 minutes, then open it up & check the temperature? If the temperature is too low at that point, do you turn it back on to High pressure for another few minutes?

    It seems like it would be messy, taking the chicken out after sautéing it. I guess you need some heavy duty tongs for that.

    Thanks!

    1. Joan, after the Instant Pot has cooked on high pressure for 25 minutes, it will start to release pressure. Let it continue to release pressure for 15 minutes before you open the Instant Pot to check the internal temperature of the chicken. You don’t turn the Instant Pot off until the pressure has released. You do need to use tongs to turn the chicken after it has sauteed. Thanks.

  2. Just one question… do you flip the chicken so that the breast is facing up when you put it on the trivet or do you cook it breast side down? Can’t wait to try this!

  3. Hi Robyn,
    I have made many of your recipes but this one we didn’t care for so much. The chicken didn’t have the slightest color of brown or crispness as did your pictures when I took off the lid after it rested for 15 minutes. It didn’t look appetizing at all, was very pale looking so I decided to put it under the broiler for 10 minutes to crisp it and hopefully brown it. I reread your recipe this morning and thought maybe I missed something but nowhere does it mention to broil to brown up the chicken.
    I wonder if anyone else had any issues with this. I added white wine to deglaze the pot after it seared on the breast side and then added the broth. The gravy turned out awesome but next time I’ll get a rotisserie chicken from the store and save all the time. Thank you for all your recipes.

    1. I’m so sorry you didn’t care for it, Susan. If your chicken didn’t have any color on it at all, I would recommend making sure that it gets great color on it as your brown it in the Instant Pot (step 2). It really doesn’t get a great deal more color after this step, so you’ll want to make sure that it has the amount of color you are looking for during this step. I don’t broil my chicken after taking it out of the Instant Pot since that can cause it to overcook and not be as tender and juicy. xo
