Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo | Delish

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Easiest instant pot recipe EVER.


2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. whole milk
2 c. chicken stock
1/2 tsp. dried basil
8 oz. fettuccine noodles
1 c. freshly grated Parmesan
1 tbsp. chopped parsley

1. Season your chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Preheat Instant-Pot to sauté (normal) setting. When the Instant-Pot says it’s hot, add olive oil then add chicken. Let sear until golden, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from pot and set aside.

2. Melt butter in bottom of Instant Pot and cook garlic until fragrant, 1 minute. Pour in cream and milk. Bring to a simmer and let thicken slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken stock and dried basil, stirring to combine. Break noodles in half and put them in the pot, along with the chicken breasts.

3. Cover Instant Pot and cook on high for 8 minutes. Let Instant Pot release steam naturally before removing lid. Remove chicken and cut, and return to pot. Stir in parmesan and parsley. Serve.
