3 Minutes Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker Chicken Pasta Fast2eat

3 Minutes Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker Chicken Pasta Fast2eat

Making pasta in a pressure cooker or Instant Pot is very easy. It really cooks the pasta just perfectly! This recipe takes only 3 minutes pressure cooking and dinner is ready. What’s more, you will have the creamiest, most delicious pasta ever! I may actually like pasta cooked in the pressure cooker/Instant Pot now, more than the typical boiling the noodles and putting it all together after!

This is a true one pot recipe. Pasta is always easy to make, but it also usually requires a pan for the meat, a pot for noodles, a pot for sauce, and a colander for draining. One pot and no colander needed here. Walk away from the stove and tend to other things while your pasta cooks itself in the pressure cooker—no boiling over, no stirring!

Try this pressure cooker/Instant Pot pasta recipe, it is absolutely mouth-watering. I am sure you will love it.

Dinner served in less than 30 minutes!

The easiest pasta recipe ever! I am sure it will become an instant hit with your family!

Ingredients

Sauté the chicken (Sauté function)

  • 2 tbsp Olive oil - extra virgin
  • 1 Onion - chopped
  • 1 tbsp Garlic - minced
  • 550 g Chicken - cubed
  • 2 tbsp Chicken broth mix
  • Black pepper - optional to taste
  • 1 tbsp Basil - dried or 2 tbsp fresh chopped
  • 1 tbsp Oregano
  • 1 tbsp Parsley
  • 1 tbsp Chives

Pressure Cook Pasta (High Pressure function)

  • 4 cups Water - boiling
  • 2 cups Cream - Whipping/Thick/Heavy/Evaporated milk
  • 3 cups Tomato sauce
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon - ground
  • 1 pinch Ginger - ground
  • 500 g Pasta - Short-cut – I used Fusilli - if using long pasta break noodles in half lengths

For serving

Instructions

Sauté the chicken.

  • Turn an electric pressure cooker on to sauté function. Add the oil, chopped onions and garlic. Sauté until onions are translucent, soft and fragrant, stirring constantly to not let brown.
  • Add chicken and seasonings. Cook, stirring occasionally until cooked through and golden brown.
  • Pour 1 cup of water in pressure cooker, and then deglaze Instant Pot by scrubbing all the flavourful brown bits off the bottom with a wooden or silicone spoon. Give it a quick mix.

Pressure Cook Pasta

  • Turn off the sauté function and add the tomato sauce, remaining water (rinse the pasta sauce jar with the remaining water - pour the water into the jar, twist on the lid, and shake gently - and then pour the water), the cream, cinnamon and ginger to the pot and stir to combine well.
  • Add pasta in pressure cooker. Ensure all pasta is soaked into the liquid (not clumped together). Push the pasta down with a spoon if necessary to make sure it is completely covered in liquid. Do not stir from this point on.
  • Close the lid, and then turn Venting Knob to Sealing Position. Pressure Cook at High Pressure 3 minutes + Natural Release 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, release remaining pressure by turning Venting Knob to Venting Position.
  • When Floating Valve drops, open the lid carefully and stir the pasta into the sauce. You will notice when you remove the lid the sauce looks very liquidy, just give it a good stir and the pasta and sauce will be perfectly incorporated.
  • Turn off the pressure cooker and remove the pot from the pressure cooker.
  • Taste and season with salt if you want.

For serving

  • Garnish with a flurry of grated Parmesan cheese, and then serve immediately!

Notes

Caution: If you Pressure Cook Pasta for more than 5 minutes the noodles will feel over cooked. I have found that 3 minutes for most pasta with 4-5 minutes natural release creates a perfect al dente pasta.
Quinoa Noodles will break down in the sauce and release starch that can cause a burn notice, so are not recommended.
Variations: use ground beef/sausage/fish/shrimp instead of chicken.
Storage: Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
