  • Pour marinade into a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Place the rack inside the pot and place drumsticks on top. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method for 15 minutes. Release remaining pressure using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

Cook's Note:

If crispy chicken is desired, place drumsticks under a broiler and cook for 4 minutes, turning after 2 minutes.

Very juicy and moist drumsticks. I let them marinate over night in the citrus flavors. 15 minutes on meat for my Instant Pot and natural release was perfect. Next time I think I will try making the leftover juices in the pot into a sauce with some cornstarch. Read More

The chicken was very moist and cooked perfectly but did not absorb any of the marinade flavors with 10 hours and turning twice. I was disappointed because it smelled fantastic. Read More
