1 1/2lbs.boneless skinless breastssliced into 1/2 inch cubes
1cupcream or milk
3/4cupcoarsely chopped spinach
freshly ground pepper to taste
Ingredients for pasta:
10ouncesuncooked egg noodles
Turn Instant Pot to the sauté setting “more” or high. When HOT add in the butter. When butter is melted add in the onions and sauté for about 3-4 minutes. Then add garlic and sauté for another minute. Add in the chicken broth, garlic powder and pepper then stir and scrape bottom if needed.
You can cook pasta at the same time and in the same pot. Use a pan that is heat and pressure safe that fits inside your Instant Pot along with 3 cups of water and 10 ounces of egg noodles or any other pasta. Place the I.P. trivet on the top of the chicken. Then carefully place the pan on the trivet. Break up any pasta that would not be submerged below the water. Do not salt pasta water.
Cover the pot and lock the lid. Ensure valve is closed and set to sealing. Set the manual pressure cook button to 6 minutes. When complete let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then release the valve to vent pressure.
While instant pot is natural releasing, warm the cream in a small bowl 30-45 seconds in the microwave. Whisk the corn starch vigorously into the cream until smooth.
Remove lid and carefully remove the bowl of pasta and set aside. Remove chicken using slotted spoon or tongs to a platter. Cover with foil or microwave spatter guard.
Turn the Instant Pot to the sauté more-high setting. Whisk the slurry into the Instant Pot. When thickened add in the parmesan cheese and spinach and combine. Remove liner from I.P. Add pepper to taste.
Drain pasta. Place a serving of pasta and chicken on a plate and cover generously with sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan and more spinach or parsley. Enjoy!
