Mix the olive oil, thyme, oregano and parsley together in a small bowl.
Gently lift the skin and slide your hand or large spoon down the chicken breast to create a pocket. Rub the herb and oil mixture under the skin and all over the chicken with your hands.
Stuff the garlic, lemon and onion wedges into the cavity of the chicken and tie the legs together with twine.
Pour the chicken stock into the pan/liner of a pressure cooker. Place a trivet into the liner and place the chicken on top.
Secure the lid making sure the pressure release knob is in the “sealing” position. Press the Manual/Pressure Cook button and adjust the time to 30 minutes for a 5 pound chicken.
When the pot beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes. Twist the sealing knob to release any remaining pressure.
Carefully remove the chicken from the pressure cooker and place on a foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place under the broiler for 4 to 5 minutes to brown the skin.
Remove from oven and allow chicken to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Serve with additional lemon wedges to drizzle juice over the top of the chicken.
For Pan Gravy
Press the cancel button. Lift the liner/pan out of the pressure cooker and pour the chicken stock through a strainer into a measuring cup. Add additional stock to equal 2 cups. Whisk to combine.
Place 2 tablespoons of the hot stock and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch into a small bowl.
Pour the remaining stock back into the liner of the pressure cooker. Press the Saute button. Add the flour/stock mixture into the pan and whisk to combine. Heat until mixture starts to thicken. Serve with chicken.
Cook chicken for 6 minutes per pound.
For Whole30/Paleo/Keto gravy: sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of glucomannan into the stock and whisk to combine. Cook until mixture starts to thicken, but it will thicken even more as it cools.
Substitute a 1/2 teaspoon each of dried herbs if fresh is not available.
