  • Close and lock the lid. Select High pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 20 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add chicken back into the pot. Scatter noodles on top so they don't clump up.

  • Mix mushroom soup, chicken soup, and milk together in a bowl. Pour over noodles. Close and lock the lid. Select High pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 7 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Stir in taco seasoning and chicken seasoning salt.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Spray an 8x12-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Transfer 1/2 of the spaghetti mixture to the casserole dish and sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Add remaining spaghetti mixture and sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 cups cheese.

  • Broil in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling and golden, 3 to 5 minutes.

Came out fantastic. I added some extra spice (added garlic Tapatio hot sauce red pepper and more onion). I cheated on the cheese. I was lazy and didn't want to grate some so instead I substituted cheddar slices. They laid out across the pyrex evenly once in the middle and then across the top. I put in oven and crisped the cheese till golden. Cut up like a dream. Add a salad and fresh fruit... Family gobbled it up and asked for seconds. Wonderful for days you forget to pull and defrost or just sounds good at the last minutes. Looooooved!!! Yummy Read More

Pretty easy and tasty dish. I already had all ingredients on hand except the soups, so it’s a great dish to make in a pinch since it calls for frozen chicken. Unfortunately my picky 9yr old gave it a 5/10 rating. Read More
