BEER CAN CHICKEN – INSTANT POT
Beer + Whole Chicken + Instant Pot = WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!!!! This recipe in the Instant Pot was Easy, Fast, Fall of the Bone Tender and Deliciously Moist! SEE NOTES about Recipe and Hints!
1 Whole Chicken 4-4.5 Lbs.
1 — 12 Oz Can Beer
3/4 Cup Chicken Broth (I made mine using chicken base)
McCormick Grill Mates Hot Pepper Blackened
McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic & Herb
Chicken Bouillon Powder
Wash your chicken and remove neck and any chicken parts from inside the cavity, if there is anything – It can be thrown away OR you can boil them in water and use the broth for noodles and gravy.
To your Instant Pot add 3/4 of a cup of beer from your beer can and 3/4 cup chicken broth.
Rub olive oil on the inside of your chicken add the seasonings on the inside – rub them in, once the inside is done – do the same to the outside – I even lift the skin rub olive oil and seasonings under the skin as much as I can.
If you have a rack put your beer can in the center of the rack – if you don’t have a rack put your beer can with remaining beer inside on the bottom, middle, of your Instant Pot. Put the open cavity of your chicken facing down and lower it on to your beer can, insert it as far as it will go inside your chicken.
Close your lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 25 minutes. Allow to naturally release.
Carefully pull out chicken (it will be falling apart) – If you want your skin golden and crispy – place chicken on a baking sheet – set oven to broil – broil for 3-5 minutes or until outside skin is brown/crispy as desired.
You Do Not have to season your chicken if you don’t want to – it’s just a suggestion.
Use seasonings of your choice!
I recommend using an 8qt. Instant Pot — My young chicken was 4-1/2lbs and it just fit!
I also used a wonderful gadget called the INSTA-beer can rack made for pressure cooking.
