Whole Roast Chicken (Pressure King Pro 5L)

Great for Sunday lunches, get creative with this recipe by experimenting with your own rubs and marinades before cooking.

Save the juices for making gravy and serve with veggies of your choice.


2 tbsp olive or cooking oil

1 whole chicken up to approx. 1.4kg max

250ml chicken stock (or water)

4 whole garlic cloves (optional)

Salt and pepper (to taste)

Suitable for: Pressure King Pro 5.7L 12-in-1 Pressure Cooker

The Method

Season the chicken with salt and pepper and pierce the skin in several places using a fork or knife. Select the BROWNING function, add the oil and allow to heat.

Add the chicken breast side down, and brown as much of the surface area as possible for ~4 minutes.

Turn the chicken over and add the stock and garlic cloves (if using), then press CANCEL.

Put the lid on and close the pressure valve then select the MEAT function and adjust the time to suit the size guide below:

900g - 1.2kg - 25 minutes
1.2kg - 1.4kg - 35 minutes
1.4kg - 1.8kg - 45 minutes
1.8kg - 2kg - 50 minutes

When the program has finished press CANCEL. For this recipe we recommend the SLOW RELEASE method before opening the pressure valve and removing the lid. Test with a thermometer to make sure the temperature is at least 75 °C in the thickest part and the juices run clear.
