Instructions
  1. Add olive oil to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTÉ function. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. When oil gets hot, brown the chicken on both sides, 3-4 minutes per side. Meat will not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot--you may have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  3. Add butter to the Instant Pot. When butter is melted, add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until it just begins to brown.
  4. Mix in cream, broth, salt and nutmeg and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  5. Add (broken in half) noodles, ensuring all noodles are submerged. Nestle chicken breasts in sauce in an even layer, turning once to coat.
  6. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  7. Using the display panel select the MANUAL function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 10 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  9. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL. Carefully remove the chicken to a cutting board and slice into bite-sized pieces.
  10. Return chicken to the pot, stir in parmesan cheese and serve immediately, garnished with basil.

    The noodles burn and stick to the bottom of the pot causing the cooker to show the “burn” error message and stop cooking…

    Recipe looks great, but as others have commented the pasta gets burned easily. We had to take everything out and cook it on the stove.

    Great taste! I didn’t experience any problem with burning or uncooked noodles. I used thin spaghetti and throughly deglazed after browning chicken and minced garlic. I used Wifi InstantPot and let it set pot per recipe.

    It turned out very good! Had to cook a couple minutes longer, but i will definitely be making this again!

    Any recipe that calls for pasta I cook on the stove.I like unbroken noodles (spaghetti) and you have more control over the texture.And it doesn’t really add any more time to overall cook time

    I thought this was great. Only I used penne pasta instead of the regular noodles. They just hold up better.
