Recipe type: Instant Pot
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 2-3 servings
Ingredients
  • ½ lb. whole wheat pasta, (I use whole wheat fettuccine)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, cut into small pieces
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 lb. chicken, cut into small, ¼" thin pieces
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded Italian blend cheese
Instructions
  1. Place the pasta, water, butter, and 1 tsp. salt in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  2. Season the pieces of chicken with a pinch of salt, pepper, and the garlic powder. Add the chicken to the Instant Pot on top of the pasta. Stir.
  3. Place a steamer basket on top of the pasta and chicken. Put the broccoli florets in the steamer basket, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Close the lid of the Instant Pot, ensuring the vent is sealed. Use the "Manual" setting for 4 minutes.
  5. When the time is up, quick release the steam by turning the vent. Once the steam is done releasing, open the lid and set the broccoli and steamer basket aside.
  6. Stir in the milk and cheese to the pasta and chicken, (do not drain the excess water!) You may need to stir for a minute or two until the liquid is absorbed and the cheese melts.
  7. Finally, stir in the broccoli and eat!
