Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Rub chicken on all sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, and parsley.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Heat olive oil and add chicken, breast-side down. Cook until skin is browned, about 5 minutes. Use tongs to flip chicken and brown on the other side for another 5 minutes. Carefully remove chicken from the pot and set aside. Pour in chicken stock and deglaze the pan, scraping off all the browned bits.

  • Place the rack insert into the pot and return chicken to the pot, breast-side up. Close and lock the lid.

  • Select Poultry setting and set timer for 28 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. Unlock and remove the lid. Carefully remove chicken to a carving board to rest.

  • Turn on Saute function and whisk cornstarch into the pot with the stock and drippings to make a gravy.
