Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken
It’s almost second nature for me to always make my own chicken now, however I do know that a $5 ready made Costco rotisserie chicken is hard to compete against.
Nevertheless, I created a recipe to help you make your own rotisserie chicken in your own kitchen with little effort and a few extra bonuses.
Bonuses like not having to drive all the way to Costco and fight the lines. And…using better chicken that’s of your choosing and hence a little better and healthier chicken. Most of the time I buy my chicken through Butcher Box or Omaha Steaks because I know it’s better for me.
Gorgeous Homemade Chicken
- 3-5 lbs chicken breast bone in and skin on
- 1-3 tbsp salt coarse
- 2 tsp pepper
- 3 tsp garlic powder
- 2-4 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup water
- Turn Instant Pot (IP) on sauté. Add olive oil to the bottom of IP and let heat. Generously season both sides of the chicken with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.
- Working in batches place 2-3 breasts skin side down on to the hot oil to brown the chicken. Do not touch for 2-4 minutes or until the skin is slightly browned.
- Turn breasts over and continue to brown the underside for another 2-4 minutes. Remove chicken into a side plate and repeat with remaining chicken.
- Once all chicken is browned on all sides turn IP off. Do not clean out the metal insert.
- Next place a metal trivet at bottom of your metal insert on top of the brown bits left from the browning of the chicken.
- Pour one cup water over the brown bits and metal trivet. Place the browned chicken in layers on top of the trivet.
- Place your lid on the IP and set it to sealing. Next, press manual and then + button to toggle up to 25 minutes.
- Your IP machine will read ON as it’s pressurizing. Once the IP is fully pressurized the countdown will begin for the 25 mins.
- When your 25 minute countdown has completed DO NOT DO ANYTHING. LET YOUR IP CONTINUE TO SIT THERE FOR UP TO 60 minutes. The IP will count UP like this…. L01,L02,L03,etc.
- Letting your IP slow release and continue to cook your rotisserie chicken. At about 1 hour of letting your rotisserie chicken sit there with the lid closed, remove the lid.
- Remove all the chicken to a side place. Carefully remove all bones and skin. Chop or shred your chicken to be used however you like.
- Pour the leftover liquid from the IP through a strainer into a container. You should get about a quart of THE BEST homemade chicken stock. Save this stock in your fridge or freezer for later use.
