Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken

Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken

Such an easy way to make a homemade copycat version of a store-bought Instant Pot Rotisserie Chicken.


  • 1 whole chicken (any size will do)
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil (do not use olive oil, as it has a low smoking point)
  • 1 onion chopped and diced
  • 1 lemon or 1/2 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  1. As usual, clean and prepare the chicken (remove the extra parts from inside the chicken and wash with water, salt, and pepper).
  2. Put the chicken inside the Instant Pot (I added the lemon and onion into the cavity for extra flavor)
  3. In a small bowl, mix the oil and spices.
  4. Turn on your Instant Pot to preheat on the sauté setting.
  5. Coat the chicken with the oil and spice blend (only use 1/2)
  6. Place the chicken breast-side down in the instant pot.
  7. Then coat the bottom side of the chicken with the other 1/2 of the oil/spice mixture.
  8. The chicken should saute for about 5 minutes until the breast side is nice and browned.
  9. Then turn the chicken over, let brown for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  10. Return the breast side up, and remain there. Add your chicken broth.
  11. Set the timer (manual) for 25 minutes
  12. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
  13. Remove the lid and let rest for about 5 minutes.
  14. Plate and serve and
  15. Enjoy!
