  5. Put the lid on and close it shut. Make sure the valve is sealed. Set on high pressure for 30 minutes (or about 6 minutes per pound of chicken). When it's done, allow the pressure to naturally release for 10-15 minutes.

  6. The meat will be really tender (falling off the bone), so if you want it intact as a whole chicken to serve carefully remove from the Instant Pot and place on a serving dish. Garnish with parsley and serve with your favorite side dish.
