We’ve eaten so many more whole chickens saving us so much money since buying our Instant Pot! It used to be such a hassle to make whole chickens, but now it is super-simple and speedy with the Instant Pot. Imagine how convenient it is going from a raw whole chicken to dinner-ready in around 40 minutes… amazing! You can also use the leftover chicken scraps to make your own broth!

Instant Pot Whole Chicken
Set instant pot to 'saute' mode with olive oil covering the bottom.
Sprinkle desired spices over whole chicken.
Lightly brown each side of the chicken approximately 2 minutes while on saute mode.
Add in chicken broth (or water) to pot. Set instant pot to 25 minutes manual or poultry setting.
After it finishes cooking, let sit for an additional 10-15 minutes to soak up all the excess juices and make for a moist chicken.
It is important to test the internal temperature of your chicken prior to eating. If it is less than 165F, cook for additional time until it reaches at least 165F.
Be sure to save those scraps and bones from the whole chicken to make super easy and healthy broth as well!
