"This chicken is cooked in the pressure cooker and then put under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the skin. It is quick and easy, flavorful, and delicious! You can also make a nice sauce with the 'drippings' afterwards."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Delicious! Unbelievably easy and quick. Overall, a great recipe! I added a celery stock under the chicken, did not have celery seed and used more garlic than recipe. My chicken was 5 1/2lbs and I cooked it for 25 minutes, next time I'll cook it for 20-22 minutes. Great recipe to try.
This was a little disappointing. My chicken was I think 5-6 lbs and it took like an hour to cook - no big deal. But the breast came out really weird - like rubbery and chewy almost. The dark meat was good though. Next time I will stick to traditional oven roasting for a whole chicken.
I had some home grown chicken that was a little tuff, so I wanted to try a pressure cooker recipe. Usually I shy away from recipes that doesn't have a lot of reviews yet, but I'm glad I didn't on this one. I was more than pleased on how this turned out. I didn't have Marsala wine but I used port wine instead. I also only cooked a half of chicken as well. When I opened the cooker after it was done, it looked so good the way it was I omitted the oven browning process. I also may have over cooked everything just a tad because the onions, carrot and lemon became one as a really awesome sauce that we pour over the juicey chicken meat, loved the taste of the lemon in it! To me this recipe is a winner.
I submitted this recipe and made it again to "test" it. It is still really, really good!
This was really easy and tasted delicious!! I did not have fresh herbs so I used dried and didn't use any thyme in the chicken. It fell off of the bone. I made the sauce into a gravy with corn starch. Easy beginner recipe for cooking with the pressure cooker.
It's easy and a good choice when having company!
UNBELIEVABLY awesome chicken. The lemons at the bottom were even delicious. The photos are absolutely horrid so just ignore them. I made it with a quartered chicken and some cut up chicken breasts, and adapted the recipe for 8 people in an 8QT pressure cooker. I skipped the broiling part and served it in a tagine with the sauce. From the 4 year olds to the adults everyone seemed to love it.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
