I've been wanting to try this for a while: cooking a whole chicken in our stove top pressure cooker. But looking around, all the recommendations I see are for dinky little birds, 1-3 lbs. I have a 6.75 pounder here, and am looking for advice.
Is it a problem if the bird doesn't lay flat in the bottom, but touches the sides of the cooker?
How much liquid do I need to add? Just enough to steam, and achieve pressure? Can I depend on enough cookibg out of the bird?
How long should I go at high pressure?
