Probably one of my favorite meals is a perfectly cooked rotisserie chicken aka Mema Chicken. Growing up my Mema always made a perfect chicken, I could eat it all day everyday. I’ve always wanted to learn how to roast a chicken but the thought of it always stressed me out until an Instant Pot came into my life. Hand’s down it was the best wedding gift I received. In the next few weeks I’ll probably start an Instant Pot series because I love this little baby.
A rotisserie chicken in my Instant Potis the easiest thing and it is a lot cheaper and healthier than buying the already made ones in the grocery store. I’m not a huge meal prep person but I try to always have a rotisserie chicken in my fridge for quick lunches or a snack before the gym. An uncooked whole chicken is around $5 for 4lbs while the already cooked one is $7 and so much smaller. You can find the recipe I used here.
A few tips
Load up on seasoning! A few of my favorites are garlic, Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, salt, pepper, paprika and Tony’s. You want your chicken to be flavorful
Rub the bird down with ghee. It works better with the high heat of the instant pot and gives it that buttery flavor
Make sure to have a good pair of tongs and a helper because flipping the chicken is not very easy
If you like your skin on the cripser side, you can always broil it for a few minutes. Just be careful and not broil it for too long to keep the moisture
You can see that the back of the chicken split because the chicken cooks under such high pressure. The meat literally falls off the bone.
