During the summer, we love making beer can chicken on the grill. Beer can chicken – also known as beer-butt chicken or chicken on a throne – is a classic dish for grilling season.
It is a simple and great way to get a moist full chicken every time. Since it’s still winter, we are sharing the same great concept, but in an Instant Pot. Be sure to check out how to make frozen chicken breasts Instant Pot for Easy meal prep
Our family has just starting adapting to using an Instant Pot and have made Instant Pot soup, but this is the first time making something as large and hearty as a full chicken. In about 50 minutes you can have a fully cooked chicken that literally falls off the bone.
Like the recipe says, it calls for a beer can, well a full can of beer that is! We are going with Yuengling. Similar when cooking with wine, only use a beer you would want to drink too.
How to make Instant Pot Beer Can Chicken
Cut up an onion and celery in large chunks and add them to the bottom of your Instant Pot or Electric Pressure cooker with water.
Place your opened, but full can of Yuengling into the middle of the veggies.
Wash, pat dry and carefully place butter cubes under the chicken skin. Season the chicken well with the dry rub.
Carefully place on top of the beer can, pushing it all the way through so it fits. Our chicken is a little large for the pot size, so it was slightly angled.
Set the Instant Pot for 30 minutes and let it do it’s magic. Then allow it to naturally steam for 20 minutes before opening the top. Weeknight dinners just got easier.
If you prefer a crispy skin, we rubbed the outside with a little olive oil and placed the whole chicken on a sheet pan under the broiler for 5 minutes. (This is completely optional). Look at all those juices coming from the Instant Pot Chicken!
Serve with a tall glass of Yuengling and enjoy the Instant Pot Whole Chicken that literally falloff the bone.
Why we love Yuengling.
Did you know Yuengling is operated by its 6th generation? Plus the owners are all women, four sisters, who have combined over 60 years of brewery experience — Jen, Wendy, Debbie and Sheryl Yuengling.
These women all grew up in the business, and it’s an interesting time to be leading a company as women, particularly in a male-dominated industry.
They are truly a family business , dedicated to their community as well. Yuengling enriches their local community as a way to help the members of our extended family thrive economically and socially.
