Cream Cheese Chicken Pasta

My very most favorite thing about my Instant Pot is that if I have little time before dinner and need something quick, I just throw things in my Instant Pot and it cooks SO FAST! This recipe is proof of this statement. It is a very quick toss in the Instant Pot and go kind of recipe. I always try to keep some chicken breasts or tenders in my freezer for a quick and easy dinner when in a rush. I love that with the Instant Pot you can toss frozen chicken breasts in and have it cooked in no time at all. That saves at least 10-15 minutes of defrosting time in the microwave. 10-15 minutes is big when you need to get dinner on the table pronto on a busy night as a family. That means 10-15 minutes of spending more time as a family reading stories, playing in the sun, or any other fun things you like to do as a family. Trust me, a Instant Pot is exactly what you need for this summer to spend less time in the kitchen baking away and more time in the sun with your kids.

  • If I don’t tell my boys that it is made with cream cheese I bet they’d devour it. And yes 15 minutes can be a huge deal when the “I’m staaaaarvingggg” starts.
