How To Cook A Whole Chicken In Your Instant Pot
Place 200ml of water into the bottom of your Instant pot and add your steaming shelf.
On a chopping board place your whole chicken. Massage olive oil into the skin and rub your seasoning into the skin.
Place it onto the steam shelf, place the lid on your Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 40 minutes on the steam function.
Allow to rest for 15 minutes on the keep warm setting before releasing the valve and serving.
Our chicken was 2 kilos (4.5 pounds) and many consider this to be a tiny chicken. So please if you have a bigger chicken add a little extra time so that it is cooked and check to see if it is cooked before you serve it.
We also found that we got the same results from a 40 minute steam and a 15 minute rest as we did from a 50 minutes and no rest. So play about with it depending on how quick a rush you are for your chicken.
