Instant Pot Whole Roasted Chicken will be some of the most tender, juicy, fall-off-the-bone chicken you will ever enjoy — and in less than 60 minutes!



  • 6 lb Whole Chicken
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 2 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Dalmatian Sage

External Chicken Seasonings:

  • 2 tbsp Creole Seasoning
  • 3 tbsp Oregano
  • 2 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Ground Thyme
  • 3 tsp Himalayan Salt

Internal Chicken Seasonings:

  • 1 tbsp Rosemary Leaves
  • 2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 tsp Dalmatian Sage
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Ground Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder


  1. Defrost your whole chicken (if necessary) then remove the giblets and excess fat from the inside of the chicken. Season the outside of the chicken with the external seasonings by running into the skin. Add the internal seasonings into the chicken cavity.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium-high heat. Add a bit of oil and brown the chicken on each side for 4 minutes.
  3. Turn on your Instant Pot in Pressure Cooking mode. Add the chicken stock, minced garlic and sage. 
  4. Once the pot is warm, place the whole chicken inside the Instant Pot (on top of the metal trivet) with the breast side down. Cover and seal the lid.
  5. Pressure cook for 30 minutes then slow release for an additional 25 minutes. Open the release valve to remove additional steam. Alow to rest for 10 minutes. Serve.
