  1. I tried to do a 4 .5 lb whole chicken in my Instantpot Lux. I sautéed it first using a small amount of oil. It did not brown. I then put it on high pressure for 30 min. did a natural release. The chicken fell off of the bones. The white meat was very dry. What can I do differently? I also did an 11 oz chicken breast. I also sautéed it. I had it under high pressure for 2 minutes and it also was very dry. Please give me some advise.
