Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add oil and butter and heat until butter is melted. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes. Add leek and garlic. Season with Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Pour in chicken broth and wine to deglaze pot. Bring to a simmer, scraping browned bits off the bottom of the pot.

  • Stir cream and egg yolk together in a small bowl until well combined. Pour into the Instant Pot®. Add pasta without mixing, letting it float on top, but making sure pasta does not stick together. You may push pasta slightly down into the liquid. Close and lock the lid and seal the vent. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 1 minute. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions for 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix Parmesan-Romano cheese mixture and a pinch of cornstarch together in a bowl. Unlock and remove Instant Pot® lid. Stir in cheese mixture and cream cheese. Slowly add enough milk until the sauce reaches desired creaminess. Mix well to create a smooth cream sauce.

This was excellent. I imagined a flavor but I underestimated how the flavors would interact. The flavors blended into a rich creamy flavor that was different than the Alfredo I thought it would be. I did make one change and it was minor. I substituted Almond Milk for regular milk. I can not tell you what it did to the flavor but the outcome was well worth the effort. Read More

This was really tasty. I didn't have cream cheese on hand but it was still creamy and a good consistency. It might have been the noodles I used or my instant pot but next time I would set it for 2 minutes instead of 1 as the noodles were still a bit chewy. When I first opened the instant pot it looked like the ingredients had curdled a bit on the noodles but when I added in the remaining ingredients that was no longer apparent. Read More

This is a great recipe! I accidentally used red cooking wine, but it still worked out great. I didn't know how much 1 oz of cream cheese was so I used 1/4 cup. My only comment is that the serving size is very small. The serving sizes are appropriate as a side dish, but not really a main course. Other than that, fantastic! Read More

You don't need a pressure cooker, or have to chop up the chicken. I used whole thighs in a wok with a lid, and it came out delicious! Also, you don't need whipped cream - I used whole milk powder and added the egg white to the milk called for just before the cheese is added. This recipe is flexible to what you have in your kitchen.

Super good!!!! I used 2 boneless chicken breasts cubed, used one whole onion diced instead of leeks, & added 1 more ounce of cream cheese as some other reviewers did. I don’t have a pressure cooker so cooked it In my Le Creuset with the lid on & added a bit more chicken broth & wine til pasta was el dente. I will definitely make this again!! My husband & I both liked this , & it was easy to make. Read More
