Herb Stuffed Instant Pot Whole Chicken

  • Author: Kelsey


  • 1 whole chicken
  • ¼ cup ghee
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper


  • Remove your whole chicken from its package and lightly dry it with some paper towels.
  • In a small bowl combine ghee, rosemary, sage, garlic powder, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper.
  • Take the ghee mixture and stuff some of it underneath the skin on the breasts and the rest all over the top, reserving 1 tablespoon of the ghee mix.
  • Sprinkle the remaining salt all of the top of the chicken.
  • Place your instant pot on the saute function then add that remaining tablespoon to the pot.
  • Once it is nice and hot, place the chicken (ghee & breast side down) in the instant pot and let it cook for 3 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken, turn the instant pot off and add the steamer rack + 1 cup of water to the pot.  Place the chicken on the rack and turn the instant pot on manual high pressure for 40 minutes with the top knob on “sealing”.
  • Once that time is up just make sure you turn the knob to “venting” within 5 minutes of the timer going off.
  • Once it is done venting, removed the chicken and enjoy!


  • This chicken won’t be like a roasted chicken with super crispy skin!  It is meant to be a fast way to cook a chicken perfectly on the inside – it should be moist and perfect to pull apart for a chicken salad or any chicken dish you desire.
