Coronation Chicken

Instant pot awesome

I recently upgraded my slow cooker to an Instant Pot duo. The upgrade meant having one appliance that slow cooks and can also be an air fryer. During the last few weeks, I have fallen in love with the pot’s bake and roast options. Usually, I would refuse to roast a chicken during the summer months. It is just too hot in our house to have the oven on. The Instant Pot Duo means I can happily roast a chicken without fearing heatstroke. I found a whole chicken at the bottom of the freezer, so I decided to use it.
