Easy Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken!

Easy Rotisserie Chicken!

You can’t beat this super easy recipe. I have to say I prefer cooking my chicken in the oven but most days I don’t have time for the 3 hour ordeal of roasting a whole chicken. I think the oven gives it crispier skin but this one tastes just like a rotisserie chicken from the store! And an added bonus is that you get tons of juice in the instant pot.


(adapted from


2 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. black pepper

2 tsp. thyme

1 1/2 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 (5-6 pound) roasting chicken

2 tbs. canola oil

1 cup chicken stock


First, in a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, thyme, paprika, oregano, onion powder and garlic powder. Prepare the chicken by removing the giblets and excess fat. Dry chicken thoroughly with paper towels. Then, spread the seasoning all over chicken and under the skin. (You can also stuff the cavity with a halved lemon- I didn’t and it still turned out fine. Next, set your Instant Pot to the high saute setting. Add the canola oil and brown the chicken on both sides for about 5 minutes each. Take the chicken out and set it on a plate.

Add the metal trivet to your instant pot and then add the chicken stock. Gently place the chicken on top of the trivet and select high pressure cooking for 28 minutes. When the chicken is finished cooking, naturally release the pressure which takes about 20-30 minutes. Let the chicken rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. You can add the juice from the Instant Pot on top.

I served it with riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s and a salad! I fed a family of 5 and we have enough left over for another meal. Total dinner win!
