Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo – simple & delicious!

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!

It’s pretty incredible when you can make an entire dinner in ONE POT! You are going to love this Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo! You’ll cook your chicken, the alfredo sauce AND the pasta ALL IN ONE POT! Woo hoo!

You can serve this instant pot chicken alfredo with a side of your favorite veggies (I love to quickly steam broccoli in the microwave!) and you’ve got a full balanced meal! Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo is sooo simple to pull together! Just say no to dirty kitchens my friends! THIS is the way to do it!

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 chicken breast (about 1.5 pounds)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 quart chicken broth (4 cups)
1 pint heavy cream (2 cups)
2 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 pound fettuccine (16 oz box)
8 oz freshly grated parmesan cheese (1 cup)
4 oz cream cheese (optional)

Turn the instant pot to the saute high setting and add olive oil to pot.
Season chicken with the salt and pepper to taste and sear both sides until golden brown, then set chicken aside.
Add chicken stock to the pot and use a wooden spoon scrape the bottom of the pot to remove any brown bits stuck to the bottom (to ensure you don’t acquire the burn notice).
Stir in the heavy cream, garlic powder, salt, pepper.
Break the fettuccine in half and layer it crosswise in about 4 layers.
Add the chicken over the pasta and put the lid on and set the valve to seal.
Pressure cook on high pressure for 7 minutes, then fast release when the timer ends (otherwise sauce will begin to burn on the bottom).
Remove the chicken breast, cut it up and toss back into the pasta.
Slowly stir parmesan cheese into the pasta.
If desired, cut up 4 oz of cream cheese and stir into pasta. Give it a few minutes to melt into the mixture.
Sauce will thicken as it stands.
