Instant Pot Whole Chicken and Gravy (VIDEO)

Instant Pot Whole Chicken is the fastest way to cook a rotisserie chicken. Cooking Whole Chicken in the Instant Pot is so juicy and you’ll love the easy 3-ingredient chicken gravy made from the drippings.

We love the instant pot not just for the speed of making dinner, but because it comes together in one pot. One and done – just like our Instant Pot White Chicken Chili and Instant Pot Chicken and Rice. Explore our best Instant Pot Recipes Here.

Instant Pot whole Chicken Recipe:

The ingredients here are so simple and you probably have everything you need in your refrigerator and pantry. We used 1 whole chicken (4 to 4 1/2 lbs), chicken broth, fresh garlic, thyme, rosemary and lemon juice, butter and a few dried spices (salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder and paprika).

The combination of seasonings makes for the best taking gravy made from the pan drippings and prepared right in the instant pot. The gravy is amazing poured over mashed potatoes and the sliced chicken.

Ingredients for instant pot whole chicken recipe

Tips for the Best Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken:

  • Cook the chicken for 6 minutes per pound and allow a 15-minute natural pressure release. Releasing the pressure gradually will ensure your chicken is fully cooked through and rested for the juiciest chicken. It also prevents foam from shooting out of the valve.
  • Weigh the chicken to ensure the proper cooking time (see timing chart below). Overcooking the bird will cause it to fall apart and will make it difficult to transfer.
  • Make sure your chicken fits your instant pot size. Our 6 qt instant pot fits up to a 5 lb chicken. An 8 qt pressure cooker is better for the larger sized chickens.
  • Use a Trivet for even cooking and to help remove the chicken from the instant pot.
  • Broil the chicken for a crisp salty skin
  • Do not discard the drippings – they make the best gravy to pour over your chicken.
  • Keep the carcass and bones for Instant Pot Chicken Broth.

How to Cook a Whole Chicken in the Instant Pot:

Prepare Chicken: Separate the skin over the chicken breast using a spoon.

Set up Instant Pot: Place the trivet inside the instant pot and pour in 1 cup chicken broth. Add the chicken breast-side-up and stuff the cavity with garlic cloves and half of the squeezed lemon.

Make Butter Sauce: Combine melted butter with all of the seasonings. Pour half of the mixture under the skin and pour the remaining mixture all over the outside of the chicken.

Pressure Cook Chicken: Cover with the lid, set the lever to “sealing” position, cook on high pressure for 6 minutes per pound followed by 15-minute natural pressure release before manually releasing remaining pressure.

Broil for Crisp Browned Skin: Transfer chicken to a foiled lined baking sheet, season with more salt, pepper, and paprika and broil in the center of the oven 4-5 minutes or until the desired color is reached.

Cooking Times for I.P. Whole Chicken:

As a general rule of thumb, cook your chicken on high pressure for 6 minutes per pound, then do a natural pressure release for 15 minutes before manually releasing remaining pressure.

  • 3 lbs = 18 minutes on high pressure with 15-min natural release
  • 3 1/2 lbs = 21 minutes on high pressure with 15-min natural release
  • 4 lb = 24 minutes on high pressure with 15-min natural release
  • 4 1/2 lb = 27 minutes on high pressure with 15-min natural release
  • 5 lb = 30 minutes on high pressure with 15-min natural release

Perfectly cooked chicken in the instant pot is tender and juicy at 6 minutes per pound

Can I Cook a Frozen Whole Chicken in the Instant Pot?

For this recipe, a fresh or thawed chicken works best. You can cook a frozen whole chicken but it will take significantly longer (60-70 minutes on high pressure) and we found a thawed or fresh chicken will cook more evenly. Also, you won’t be able to pour the flavored butter under the chicken skin.

If you want to use a frozen chicken, a dry rub would work better like in this Instant Pot Frozen Chicken Recipe from my friend Olena of Ifoodreal. She also shares some great tips like what to do with the bag of giblets that are stuck inside the chicken and timings for different sized frozen chickens.

Recipes for Leftover Rotisserie Chicken:

We love cooking a whole chicken because the options are endless for easy dinners using leftover chicken. Don’t forget to keep the carcass to make the best homemade chicken stock.

Ingredients

Instant Pot Whole Chicken:

  • 4 lb whole chicken
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and lightly smashed
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 sprig of rosemary leaves stripped and minced
  • 1 sprig of thyme leaves stripped and minced
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 lemon (squeeze 1 Tbsp juice and use same lemon to stuff chicken)

For the Chicken Gravy:

Instructions

How to Make Instant Pot Whole Chicken:

  1. Take out the giblets bag from inside the chicken. Pat dry inside and out with paper towels. Place chicken breast-side-up. Starting from the drumstick side, loosen the skin from the breast, using the back of a spoon to help. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl combine: all of the seasonings, the minced rosemary and thyme and 1 Tbsp lemon juice and one stick of melted butter. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. Place a rack in the inner pot of your instant pot and add 1 cup of chicken broth. Add chicken breast-side-up. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with crushed garlic cloves and half a lemon.
  4. Pour half the butter mixture under the skin, (you can use your fingers to massage the chicken and distribute the mixture) then spread the remaining butter mixture evenly over the top of the chicken.
  5. Pressure cook for 24 min with 15 min natural pressure release, remove the chicken with trivet, allowing any excess juice to drip into the pot (keep that liquid for gravy).

  6. Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet, season with more salt and pepper and paprika if desired for a little color then broil at 500˚F, or air fry 5 min or until the skin is browned. Rest 10 minutes before slicing.

To Make the Chicken Gravy:

  1. Pour all of the liquid from the pot into a bowl or measuring cup and skim off the excess fat at the top. You should have about 2 cups after straining off the fat.
  2. Set the instant pot to the sauté function and melt in 3 Tbsp butter. Whisk in 3 Tbsp flour, whisking for 1 minute until golden. Add the remaining drippings and whisk until simmering and thickened then remove from heat. Serve with chicken.

Recipe Notes

As a general rule of thumb, cook your chicken on high pressure for 6 minutes per pound, then do a natural pressure release for 15 minutes before manually releasing remaining pressure.

    First time using Instapot, this chicken recipe was delicious. Only issue I came across, chicken was a little pink & bloody but placed in the oven & our meal was perfectly cooked. I cooked for 18 minutes since chicken was 3 lbs but I think weight was incorrect. We learn as we go, I will definitely use this one again. Before I end, gravy recipe was da bomb… yummy! Thank you Natasha for sharing with us.

      Hi Mariette, for oven-roasted chicken, I would recommend roasting at 425 degrees F for 1 hour 30 minutes (for a 5-5 1/2 lb chicken), or until juices run clear when you slice between the leg and thigh. A smaller chicken will roast faster. I highly recommend a meat thermometer since not all chickens are the same in size. The deepest/thickest part of the thigh should read 165˚F. Rest 15-20 minutes before serving after it’s out of the oven.

    This was JUST what I was looking for! I bought a whole chicken, having never made one in a pressure cooker, then searched until I found this recipe. The only changes I made were to add 1/4 of an onion into the chicken with the lemon and sub 1/2 the broth for white wine. It was delicious and made the gravy Devine.

    Gosh this is an amazing way to cook chicken. Chicken is so moist. Flavoured butter – tick tick tick. The sauce is just scrumptious. A 2 kilo bird takes 26 minutes. Under a very hot grill for 5 minutes or so. Meanwhile, there is plenty of room in the oven for roast potatoes and roast carrots and broccoli. Yum yum yum. Love love love your fun videos!

      Hi Aubrey, did you change anything in the recipe or maybe use a smaller chicken without making the size adjustments with cook time? Also, make sure to depressurize and remove the chicken as directed. The pressure cooker is one of those things that if it’s left in too long, it can easily overcook. I hope that helps for next time.

    Made this last night. Followed the recipe exactly. It was amazing and the gravy was really good as well. I had to make one modification for the gravy as we have two in our home who cannot eat gluten. So I used 3 TBSP Domata All Purpose GF flour. Worked perfectly for any who need this to be GF. Keep up the good work Natasha!

      Hi Luna, if you are new to the Instant Pot, it is highly recommended to read the user guide for the specific model that you own and they often have a test run recommendation that I suggest following so you can get the hang of using the instant pot. After the initial pressure cooking timer is completed, mine starts a new countdown which is the natural pressure release stage. You want to let that timer get to 15 minutes before releasing any remaining pressure with the valve on top. That is what is meant by the 15minute natural pressure release. I hope that helps!

    The only thing that wasn’t exactly up to my taste is that the skin wasn’t that crispy even with the broiling but maybe i should have had the grill closer to the broiler. Thanks Natasha, glad I discovered you

    This is one of the best recipes ever. Wonderful gravy. I used your spatchcock method on the chicken and the flung it in the instant pot. I tied string around it to hold it together. Then broiled on low. Cooked carrots, brussel sprouts and artichoke hearts for the vegetables.

    My chicken was a little small for the 24 mins I think after reading some of these comments. I will be more careful in the future, as one of the thigh/legs fell off as I was transferring it to the roasting pan. LOL – but it was crazy delicious, so who cares!

    Also, do you cook yours on high or low pressurization?

    The chicken turned out too soft. The wings came off. I wouldn’t recommend the times mentioned in the recipe—a shorter cooking time in the Instant Pot would probably yield better results. Nonetheless, the chicken turned out okay. Tried another recipe before that had the same method of stuffing butter under the skin then roasting the chicken straight away, and it yielded much better results—the same buttery tender chicken meat and crispy skin without the meat falling off the bone.

      I had the same problem! Chicken was just over 5 lbs and I cooked in on high pressure for 30 minutes, plus 15 natural release. When I opened the IP, the chicken skin was peeled off and the chicken was falling apart. Just to be safe, I skipped the oven step and we just ate it as-is. Juicy, albeit not super attractive. 😉

      Upside: the gravy was out of this world!

        Hi Jill, you can definitely shave off a little time if it was overly tender. The skin does tend to separate at the top if you are using a larger bird. You can see in my photos that mine did that also. It looks prettier after broiling.

    Hi Natasha, I made this recipe for the 1st time today and my kids loved it so much. The chicken was so tender and juicy and the gravy was delicious too. I was nervous b/c I didn’t have a trivet (adding 1 to my Amazon cart now), so I used a steamer basket instead. Thanks for the great recipe.

      Hi Carmin, you can make this in a slow cooker just following whole chicken slow cooker instructions – it may be a little difficult to transfer to the oven afterward though.

      I love love love everything you make, made your chicken stir fry last night to rave reviews. Is there any way I could adapt using my slow cooker say for six hours? Then broil/sauté I’m pan?

    This was outstanding! The seasoned butter provided so much flavor to the chicken and the gravy was delicious. No additional seasoning needed. I used my MeaIthy CrispLid to brown instead of the broiler. However, even though I was very careful loosening the breast skin in order to add the seasoned butter, the skin split during cooking exposing the breast so only the skin on the legs and wings were “available” to crisp. It was still delicious!!!! My bird was 3.5 pounds and it cooked perfectly in 21 minutes. Thanks for great recipe!!

      Hi Helene, we used a Trivet for even cooking and to help remove the chicken from the instant pot.

      Hi, yes an instant pot is essentially an electric and programmable pressure cooker. Follow the user instructions for your specific model then pressure cook according to the recipe instructions.

    Hi Natasha! Wonderful recipe, I just made it today and it was delicious! Just wondering, do the calories listed include the gravy too or just chicken? If it’s not including the gravy, would you happen to know? Thanks

      Hi Sara, it includes the gravy too, but it also does account for removing the extra fat that is skimmed off from the gravy so that is not included.

    If I could add another star I would. This was sooo good. Chicken came out so juicy and the gravy alone is worth making this. Best gravy iv had! Seriously.

    My husband and I both loved this recipe! I was skeptical to cook a whole chicken in my Instant Pot…. not anymore, this recipe is delicious! The chicken is moist and flavorful and the gravy is amazing! Be sure to use unsalted butter and low sodium chicken broth, as indicated, or it will be too salty. I did not use the extra 3 Tbsp butter to make the gravy, didn’t need it. Thank you for the delicious recipe Natasha!

    I don’t have an instant pot. Could I use a dutch oven?

      Hi Amber, for oven-roasted chicken (you can use a dutch oven pot), I would recommend roasting at 425 degrees F for 1 hour 30 minutes (for a 5-5 1/2 lb chicken), or until juices run clear when you slice between the leg and thigh. A smaller chicken will roast faster. I highly recommend a meat thermometer since not all chickens are the same in size. The deepest/thickest part of the thigh should read 165˚F. Rest 15-20 minutes before serving after it’s out of the oven.
