Have you ever craved a perfectly cooked roast chicken with a juicy, tangy flavor that would leave your taste buds in awe? Well, let me tell you about my experience with cooking a whole chicken in the instant pot. It was a revelation! No need to fuss with aluminum foil or worry about temperature like you would in the oven, and definitely no need to wait for hours like you would in a crockpot. With the instant pot, I was able to have a succulent chicken cooked to perfection in under an hour!

But did I stop there? Of course not! I believe that one of the most exciting things about learning a new cooking technique is the endless possibilities for experimentation and creativity. So, I started to explore different ways to add flavor and texture to my roast chicken. I tried adding different spices, herbs, and even fruits to the pot, each time discovering a unique flavor profile that tantalized my taste buds.

So I began to play happily with my new recipe and discovered a completely unexpected and delicious way to improve it. Instead of cooking the chicken in plain water, I cooked it in gherkin juice, and to further enhance the flavor, I stuffed the bird with chopped gherkins. A whole pound of them. Are my pickle lovers drooling yet? Pop the whole chicken into your pressure cooker and prepare to fall in love.

This sounds crazy, but it actually tastes amazing. The vinegary brine from the gherkins soaks right into the chicken, giving it a sour, juicy flavor that makes your mouth water. It’s crispy and golden on the outside, tender on the underside, and delicious from start to finish.

As you’ll see in the recipe below, the last step will give you that crispy, golden skin, but keep the meat juicy and tender.

How do you tie a chicken and why do I have to do it?

You don’t HAVE to, but this chicken literally falls off the bone for tender and the wings and legs will immediately fall off when you try to remove it from the pot. Tying it up will keep it all together! Here are instructions on how to tie up a chicken.

Can I use chicken breast or thighs instead?

You can, but you won’t get the same deliciousness as using the whole chicken. But if you’re in a pinch and that’s all you have, I suggest layering pickle slices over the top of the chicken breast.

What should I serve with my Pressure Cooker Dill Pickle Chicken?

I like to serve mine with some fresh vegetables (green beans, corn, or asparagus) or a salad. Fresh cookies are always a winner too!
