  • Immediately release the pressure manually, about 5 minutes. Select Saute function. Mix cornstarch with water in a bowl and pour into the pot. Add heavy cream and sour cream. Mix thoroughly and turn off heat.

This was yummy!! I made a few substitutions. I browned 4 chicken breasts and added 3 Cups of stock. because I ve run into my IP getting the burn function without more than 2C of liquid. I kept the times as written and when I opened the pot some of the noodles were hard but once I added the heavy cream and sour cream they softened up. I did not have enough liquid to use the cornstarch so next time I ll add 4C of stock and then use the cornstarch. The sauce was delicious. I ll make this again! Read More

I really wanted to like this recipe but it was very bland. I followed it exactly so I m unsure why. Maybe it needed more sour cream? I ll try a different recipe next time. Read More

Reduced to 4 portions. To avoid the scorch warning I used 2 cups chicken broth, and for the sauce two tablespoons of corn starch mixed with 2 tablespoons of water, a cup of heavy cream and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Also added a 4oz can of mushrooms (drained) with the noodles. Read More

Easy and delicious. It's my kind of meal. I added some red peppers but you don't need to. I just wanted to jazz it up a bit. I really like onions so I may add a second one when I make it again. I will be making this again. It's a perfect weeknight meal. Read More
