1 whole chicken


  • 1 (2.5 pound) whole chicken

  • 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 cup chicken broth


  1. Rinse chicken and pat dry with a paper towel. Place lemon wedges inside the cavity.

  2. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot) and select the Sauté function. Mix together olive oil, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and pepper in a bowl. Rub the top of chicken with 1/2 of the spice mixture, then place chicken, breast-side down, in the pot and cook until crispy, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Rub remaining spice mixture on the bottom of chicken. Flip chicken over with tongs and cook for 1 minute more. Remove chicken from the pot.

  4. Place the trivet inside the pot; return chicken to the pot, breast-side down, on the trivet. Pour in chicken broth. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set the timer for 20 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of meat near the bone should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
