Chicken again

June 21, 2017

I swear I’ll start taking a starting photo of what I’m throwing into my Instant Pot to put with my posts. (And to help me remember what I’ve used when it turns out fabulous.)

Did I mention the two chicken breasts were frozen solid?  I literally pulled them from the freezer, ripped the bag open and put them directly into Pot Head Productions, my trusty Instant Pot.

I dumped in the herbs and seasonings and a cup of veggie broth.  I set it to manual for 30 minutes, and sat down to finish painting a rock.  (fodder for a different post)

That magic pot beeped three times letting me know it was done.  I quick released the pressure, put the chicken breasts on a plate and added the pasta and enough veggie broth to cover the noodles.  I chunked up both chicken breasts and tossed it on top of the pasta.  Put the lid back on and set four minutes on high pressure.  When it was done, I cut the cream cheese up and mixed it in with some salt and pepper.

It was delicious.  Stick-to-your-ribs delicious.  I should have put some vegetables in it. Hindsight.

Didn’t matter, I had dinner completed from frozen to finish in 45 minutes.  Chicken and pasta in a spicy, smoked paprika, white cheesy sauce.
