  • 3-4 pound whole chicken
  • 796 mL 26oz can diced tomatoes (not drained)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ tablespoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 cup - 1cup jarred sliced hot banana peppers more or less to preference.


  • To prep, add all of the ingredients to a zip bag.
  • Label the bag, seal it, and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • On cook day, add the thawed contents to your Instant Pot liner.
  • Select manual or pressure cook button (depending on the model you have) and set time for 6 minutes per pound. As a general rule for the Costco chickens, I set to 20-25 minutes.
  • When pressure cook cycle is complete, let naturally de pressurize for 10 minutes, then quick release remaining pressure. Always use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature is 165F.
  • If you like a crispier skin, pop under the oven broiler or into an Air Fryer until the skin reaches desired crispiness.
