Quick & Tasty chicken roast with less oil and less ingredient

Roasted chicken has been one of my most favorite dishes. There are different ways to roast the chicken. This recipe is generally done over a fire or in Oven. But this different recipe uses very little Oil and the roasting is done in a pressure cooker.
I made this on a Sunday and served it with Rice and Sambar(Lentil Curry). We all loved this recipe and it was not enough for our family :). It wouldn't even take 30 minutes to prepare this dish. This recipe is unique because we use very few ingredients.

Adding Coconut oil gives a unique aroma to the dish. You can replace it with ghee itself or your choice of oil.
