Instant Pot Roast Chicken (Video Included) #WhatsCookingWednesday

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

Picking up a Rotisserie chicken is very convenient. I like to know exactly what is in my food and that means on my chicken. Given we have a lot of food sensitivities I find that planning our meals and cooking everything from scratch helps contain our food reactions. This week I decided to roast a chicken in our Instant Pot so that I could have chicken for a few meals this week just by cooking one chicken. 

The Instant is my most beloved appliance in my kitchen. I now have two of them actually and at least one of them gets used on a daily basis in my house and about twice a week both of them are in use. On a snowy day, there is nothing better than coming home and putting on a warm pot of soup.
