My love for the instant pot continues and i have to say that after trying turkey breast roasted in the oven or made in a slow cooker my favorite way right now is made in the instant pot using the high pressure method the reason is simple and beside the obvious reason that it rsquo s faster i find that this results in the juiciest turkey breast out of all the other cooking methods.

How long to cook a whole chicken in the instant pot pressure cooker cook a fresh chicken for 6 minutes per pound this means that a 4 pound chicken will take 24 minutes to cook a 4 5 pound chicken will take 27 minutes and a 5 pound bird will take 30 minutes at high pressure.

Helpful note to my instant pot friends i put all the things that the author put for the gravy dropped thawed chicken breasts and pressure cooked for 8 minutes and released pressure immediately it was a hit.
