Instructions

Approx. pressure build: 6 minutes
Pressure cook: 22 minutes
Pressure release: 5 minutes
Air crisp: 8-18 minutes
1

Remove packet of giblets, if included in cavity of the chicken. Rinse chicken and tie legs together with cooking twine.

2

In a small bowl, mix together lemon juice, hot water, honey, and 2 tablespoons salt. Pour mixture into the pot. Place whole peppercorns, thyme, and garlic in the pot.

3

Place chicken into the Cook & Crisp Basket and place basket in pot.

4

Assemble pressure lid, making sure the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position. Select PRESSURE and set to high (HI). Set time to 22 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

5

When pressure cooking is complete, allow pressure to natural release for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, quick release the pressure by moving the pressure release valve to the VENT position. Carefully remove lid when unit has finished releasing pressure.

6

Brush chicken with canola oil or spray with cooking spray. Season with salt and pepper.

7

Close crisping lid. Select AIR CRISP, set temperature to 400°F, and set time to 8 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin. Cook until desired level of crispness is reached, adding up to 10 additional minutes.

8

Let chicken rest for 5–10 minutes. Cooking is complete when internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove chicken from basket using the Ninja® roast lifters* (or 2 large serving forks).

*The Ninja roast lifters are sold separately on ninjaaccessories.com.

A tip from the Ninja® Kitchen Team

Use cooking spray in place of oil to evenly coat large cuts of protein in the Cook & Crisp Basket.
