If you know me, you know I am a sucker for Chicken Alfredo. The creamy sauce makes it #1 for me. You can put that on ANY carb and I’m in heaven. You can imagine the joy when Dave told me he was making this for dinner. Even the kids were crowded around the Instant Pot checking it out.
We are continuing our theme of fast meals in the Instant Pot this week, and Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo might be one of the fastest. It has not been particularly busy this month, but with June Gloom in full effect and not being able to go to a lot of our favorite places because of COVID we have really been feeling like our brains need a break. No need to bust out a 60 ingredient recipe.
Oh, not pictured were the mounds of broccoli that I promise we ate along with it. Gotta add some greens in with my saucy heaven. To be fair, you can eat only Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo but you might regret it later.
We sure hope you enjoy it as well!
Pin now, enjoy later!
Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo
How can you resist linguine in a thick and creamy Alfredo sauce mixed with spinach topped with fresh grape and cherry tomatoes and slices of juicy and flavorful chicken breast. Here is a flavor packed hearty family meal everybody loves.
~2 Cups Spinach(optional, but it's a nice addition!)
Sliced Cherry Tomatoes(optional, I used red cherry and yellow grape tomatoes)
Mix all "rub for chicken" ingredients (Salt, Pepper, Garlic & Onion Powder, and Italian Season)
Rub both sides of the three chicken breasts (coat well)
Press Saute on the Instant Pot, when hot, add olive oil
Place chicken breasts into pot and saute for 2-3 minutes on both sides and put on a plate to the side
Turn off saute
Add ~1/4 cup chicken broth and scrape the bottom with flat wood spatula to scrape the pot bottom clean
Add the rest of the chicken broth (4 cups total), cream, garlic & onion powder, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to the broth/cream mixture and stir well
Press Saute again.
Add the linguine. As the broth heats, press the pasta into the broth with a spatula.
Add chicken breasts on top of the pasta to keep pasta under the broth
Lid, Seal, Pressure Cook for 8 minutes
Once 8 minutes are done, quick release the pressure and plate chicken
Add cornstarch slurry and mix well
Optional: Add spinach (optional, add a little more salt and pepper to taste). Stir spinach in well.
Optional: Let sit for ~3-5 minutes until spinach looks "wilted"
Stir in the Parmesan cheese into the pasta and spinach until melted and mixed well
Slice the chicken breasts thin
Use tongs to plate linguine, add sliced chicken on top.
Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella (to taste)
Optional: Add sliced tomatoes
