Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken Recipe – flavorful and juicy rotisserie chicken made completely in the Instant Pot
I love a good rotisserie chicken. I include rotisserie chicken as a part of my weekly grocery shopping. They’re super versatile, and so easy to serve as a meal.
I am also a huge fan of my Instant Pot. I am always looking for ways to make cooking easier with my magical Instant Pot pressure cooker, and regularly share Instant Pot recipes here on the blog. This Instant Pot rotisserie chicken recipe is by far one of the easiest pressure cooker recipes I’ve ever made. With three young kids and a hungry husband, “easy” is music to my dinner-making ears. This Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken is a meal that my whole family will actually eat, so that makes it even better! Plus, it’s super healthy too.
Making this rotisserie chicken recipe is quite simple, but I accredit much of the success of this to a helpful Instant Pot accessory! I highly recommend using a trivet to keep the chicken off the bottom of the Instant Pot while cooking.

Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken Recipe
First, remove the giblets from the chicken cavity. Then, pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Rub seasoning all over the chicken, you can insert some of it under the skin, close to the cavity. For the seasoning, I use a sprinkling of: salt, pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, and some general purpose poultry seasoning. It comes out delicious! While you’re seasoning the chicken, switch your Instant Pot on to the “saute” function and coat the bottom of the pot with a bit of olive oil.
Next, you’ll want to pop the chicken into the Instant Pot. Let the chicken saute on each side for a few minutes (about 4-5 minutes per side) to give it that traditional crispy rotisserie look and taste. Once you’ve browned both sides of the chicken, remove it from the pot.
Now, place the trivet into the pot. Add in 2 cups of chicken broth to the Instant Pot. Place the rotisserie chicken onto the trivet. Set the Instant Pot to the manual setting.
FYI – The general rule for cooking a whole chicken in the Instant Pot, is to cook it for 6 minutes per pound. Figure out how many pounds your chicken is and multiply by 6 to get your magic cooking number! I cooked mine for about 30 minutes just to make sure it was totally cooked thoroughly.
When the Instant Pot is done, let the pressure release naturally. Then, your chicken is ready to go! Serve with a yummy side dish and enjoy!
