  • 5-6 pound Whole Fresh Raw Chicken
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder Or 10-14 cloves fresh garlic. Minced garlic can also be substituted.
  • 1 tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper


  1. Check the inside of your chicken for any packets containing innards and remove if included. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
  2. Sprinkle the seasonings over the chicken. Using a brush, lightly rub the seasonings into the chicken skin.
  3. Put chicken on a trivet with handles and lower into the Instant Pot. Add 1 cup of water to the pot.
  4. Close lid on Instant Pot and turn pressure valve to seal.
  5. Set for a manual high time of 30 minutes (6 minutes per pound). Allow for a natural pressure release of 15 minutes at the end of the cooking time before releasing any remaining pressure by opening the pot. DO NOT do a quick release or your chicken will be dry.

Recipe Notes

10-14 cloves fresh garlic can be substituted for the garlic powder and is delicious. Minced garlic can also be substituted, I've used a full tablespoon and the chicken comes out deliciously.

I prefer cracked black pepper in my recipes, but you can use your favorite. Cracked black pepper always seems to result in more flavor than standard table black pepper.
