Instant Pot Vortex Plus Rotisserie Chicken

Ta Da!!! My Delicious Rotisserie Roast Chicken

I have always disliked making a whole Chicken. Despite my best friend telling me it’s the easiest thing she does in her home, I still don’t like making it. But the few times that I have made a whole Chicken, I have done it using our oven and I always either undercook or overcook the chicken to death ๐Ÿ˜€

But it was so easy to use my Vortex Plus to do this that I am pretty certain that this is going to start being a Regular in our household. And for whatever reason, Vortex Plus just makes me feel like a little girl who just got an Easy Bake Oven toy as a present LOL.

I must have somewhat feel intimidated about using it cos hubby got this for me as a Christmas gift and while I have used it to make Chicken Wings (which are fabulous by the way) and cookies, I haven’t touched the Rotisserie function at all.

Well, let me assure you that my initial fear is definitely unwarranted. The rotisserie function is so easy peasy to use. If a Lazy Mommy like me can use it and succeed on her first try, so can you ๐Ÿ˜€

This Bad Ass Vortex Plus is definitely not going anywhere!!! I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

When I have the time, I would make my own seasoning for the chicken but a mom’s gonna do what she’s gonna do and sometimes, there just isn’t enough time in a day to get everything done – well, not for me anyway cos you know, Netflix is important too for my sanity LOL…so ermmmm definitely no shame in using shortcuts lol

So a few lazy mommy tips for this recipe. To save time, I use onion soup mix as my dry rub for the chicken. Also, I know every recipe always calls for adding the food after the oven has been pre-heated but honestly, I donโ€™t find it such a significant difference for some dishes so I just skip that part and just add the food. For the Vortex Plus, the 40 mins only starts after itโ€™s been pre-heated anyway. Another thing – if you are concerned about if the chicken is fully cooked, temp of fully cooked chicken breast is 165 and cooked thigh meat should be 185. But 40 mins definitely did it for my 3 pound chicken. It was cooked fully but also super moist.

Ingredients:

  • Whole Chicken (must be Under 4 Pounds. I used a 3 pound bird)
  • 1 Packet of Onion Soup Mix
  • 3 Tbsp Melted Butter
  • Dash of white pepper
  • Dash of black pepper

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the onion soup mix with the melted butter
  2. Pat the chicken dry & make sure the cavity of chicken is clean. Remove any gizzards & tie the chicken with kitchen string. I was lazy and just bought a chicken that was already tied up.
  3. Rub the onion soup mix seasoning all around the whole chicken, including the cavity
  4. Everyone does it differently. For me, I find it easier to insert the left rotisserie fork to the rotisserie rod first. Then I insert the rod through the chicken cavity. Lastly, I insert the right fork to the rod and Ta Da! It is now ready to go into the Vortex Plus (dun be intimidated by my written instructions. Just watch the video. I promise you the video shows how i do it and itโ€™s actually quite easy)
  5. Some users wait till the Vortex Plus is pre-heated before adding the chicken. I honestly just add the chicken right in, close the door before I start pre-heating the Vortex Plus. I find no significant difference in it but you do what you prefer ๐Ÿ˜€
  6. 40 minutes at 375 F and I eagerly remove my chicken. Yum!
  7. To ensure you get a super moist chicken, rest the chicken for 10 minutes. This is important.
  8. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜€

Enjoy the video & let me know how it turns out for you or share with me your favorite Roast Chicken recipe!

All I know is that my son, my hubby & grandpa all gave this Roast Chicken the Thumbs Up! ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž That make this Lazy Mommy soooo very happy
