Whole Chicken in the Instant Pot Duo Crisp Air Fryer

Here is a very fast and easy way to cook a whole Chicken in your Instant Pot Duo Crisp Air Fryer.


1 whole Chicken (around 5 pounds)

Seasoning or Rub of your choice (I used Lemon Pepper)

Olive Oil (I used a spray bottle of Olive Oil)

1 1/2 cups of Chicken Broth

Wash Chicken and dry off. Apply the Seasoning of your choice inside and all over the outside of the Chicken. Carefully place whole Chicken in Fryer Basket. Pour the cup and a half of Chicken Broth into the Instant Pot and then place the Fryer Basket in.

Seal and Pressure Cook for 23 minutes on the High setting. Once done do a quick release. Remove the Fryer Basket and pour out the Chicken Broth. Wipe the inside clean and place back into Instant Pot and then place the Chicken and Fryer basket back in.

Dry off the outside of the Chicken with paper towels. Feel free to apply some more seasoning if some is removed while drying. Try to get the skin as dry as possible which will help with crisping up the skin. Apply a light dose of Olive Oil to the Chicken.

Now using the Air Fryer lid set the temperature to 400 degrees and the timer for 25 minutes. Feel free to remove the Air Fryer lids a few times doing the cooking process to check the progress of crisping up the skin. It might be done much fast the 25 minutes.

Confirm internal temperature of 165 degrees when you think it is done. Carefully remove and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes. Slice and enjoy!
