The world’s most moist chicken ever! Chicken is one dish that has to be moist and full of flavor or nobody will eat it in my house.  Turn your plain boring chicken into something amazing in your Instant Pot. This chicken recipe is the most moist and succulent chicken I have ever had.  I make this recipe at least once every two weeks sometimes more. I make my chicken with Garlic & Rosemary Mashed potatoes.

I'm trying to figure out the ingredients after rosemary. It's in "greek" :) I love your site. I'm new to the instapot life and it totally intimidates me. After going through your recipes, I think I can now do it! I'm not a very good cook and I am hoping this will help my family have some decent food to eat!

Finally, a whole chicken recipe I want to make in my IP. Too many chicken recipes for Instant Pot have a ridiculous amount and variety spices in the rub. Yours looks and sounds delicious and as soon as whole chickens go on sale, I'm going to try it. Thanks for the recipe!

I've aways done natural release with meats and read that's the only way to ensure against tough meat. Is there any worry about the protein fibers in the chicken shortening from the quick release?
