Not a typo

You pretty much cover the whole chicken with water

So it cooks when it’s coming up to pressure, it takes a while

I cooked a chicken tonight.

https://amindfullmom.com/how-to-make-a-whole-chicken-in-the-instant-pot/

I did not use her seasoning blend. I used my own.

Salt
Pepper
Pure savory (aka Newfie spice)
Lemon & herbs

My lemons had gone off, which is why I used the lemon & herbs.

The skin just peeled right off. Meat was delicious.

Instant Pot to the rescue while my oven is wonky. I did the whole chicken, then finished it under the broiler for a few minutes.  I changed up the seasonings a bit, used the lemon and onion in the cavity and tossed in some garlic cloves as well.  The broth is absolutely divine.

So this is what annoys me...the recipe I am making says that it cooks for 15 minutes, but if I want it to be done when the kids get home how much time do I need for it to come up to pressure?

It depends on the quantity of liquid and the termperature of the contents before you start.

I know but it just makes planning for it to be done at a certain time challenging.

did you poach it....water covering 90%  ? 

It's a pretty easy way to cook a chicken  :)

Usually whatever I make in the IP can sit for a while, so I don't usually worry about it too much, but if I'm trying to time something, I usually factor in about 10-15 minutes to come up to pressure and another 10 for natural release if that's needed.

Made this today.  I’ll let you know how it came out after the gravy separates and I reheat it. I usually toss in a can of black beans when I make it in the (now defunct) crock pot.

^^ It was good, but the gravy was much thinner and more watery than in the crock.  This could also be because I use more vegetables, which produce more liquid in the IP.  I finished it on the stove top to let the liquid reduce a bit.

Opened my new Instant Pot Ultra 8 QT, did the water test and then made my annual pea soup lightning fast!  I can not believe how the ham bone cooked and that it only took 15 minutes to cook.  Yes, I know, everyone knows that, but seeing is believing!

Now to read the cookbooks I bought to learn how to use this beast!
