INSTANT POT ITALIAN CHICKEN PASTA

INSTANT POT ITALIAN CHICKEN PASTA

This Instant Pot Italian Chicken Pasta is a simple Instant Pot recipe that is loaded with flavor — no mushy pasta in sight! An easy sauce made of Italian herb, roasted red peppers, spinach plus Parmesan.

How to make this Instant Pot Italian Chicken Pasta:

• Chop up your chicken: as the pasta cooks so rapidly, we need to reduce the cooking time required for the chicken. The way to do this is to cut it up into bite-sized pieces.

• Searing: I’m not actually searing the chicken, but cooking it just slightly on the outside ensures that you don’t end up with one big clump of chicken cooked together. It also ensures that the cooking time for the chicken and the pasta will be the same.

• Stir together your broth and seasonings. Add your chicken, tomato, spinach, peppers, and stir, then top with your pasta. It’s best not to stir your pasta as it will potentially stick to the bottom and cause a burning message. just press it down into the liquid.

• Pressure cook: employ the manual or pressure cook key on your Instant Pot, mine is a six-quart and I know that they are all a little different.

• Quick-release: pasta is so simply overcooked, so we want to do a controlled quick release once the cooking time is up. This means that we will use a towel and hold the valve open slightly so that the steam escapes slowly and not in one swoop.

• Stir in the remaining sauce ingredients, and heat on sautee just until thickened.

• 1 teaspoon oil
