While it took a bit of convincing, we're officially Instant Pot fans at MyDomaine HQ. Considering that we're busy working professionals juggling our careers, our social lives, and for some of us, motherhood, we can't resist the convenience, timeliness, and affordability of this seven-in-one kitchen appliance. In an effort to find the most tried-and-true recipes on the internet, we reached out to Pinterest to get some data on the most popular Instant Pot recipe on the sharing platform. Their data pull led us to Healing Gourmet's fall-off-the-bone chicken, which has been shared over 82,000 times on Pinterest. The chicken takes just 30 minutes to make on the Instant Pot's pressure cooker setting.
"I recently began using the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker and I can truly say that this is one of the best kitchen investments I've ever made," writes recipe creator and biochemist Kelley Herring. When it comes to this recipe, "there's no advance preparation, no brining or basting. And in the short time it cooks, you'll have just enough time to make your sides." She suggests a dark leafy green organic salad, mashed sweet potatoes, or cauliflower mashed potatoes to round out the meal. Find her recipe below:
Whole organic chicken
Organic virgin coconut oil
Organic chicken bone broth
Freshly ground black pepper
Garlic cloves, minced and peeled
In a small bowl, combine paprika, thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub seasoning over outside of bird.
Heat oil in the pressure cooker to simmering. Add chicken, breast side down, and cook six to seven minutes. Flip the chicken and add broth, lemon juice, and garlic cloves.
Lock pressure cooker lid and set for 25 minutes on high. Let the pressure cooker release naturally.
