Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo

8 ounces dried fettuccine noodles or whatever variety you choose, broken into thirds
2 cups of water
1 – 15 ounce jar of Alfredo sauce
1 cup (fresh or frozen) chicken, diced
2 teaspoons chicken base
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
½ teaspoons ground pepper
Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)

  1. Place water, chicken base, garlic, noodles and chicken into Instant Pot.
  2. If using frozen chicken, set timer to 2 minutes.  If using uncooked chicken set timer to 3 minutes.  Cook at HIGH PRESSURE on Manual and do a Quick Pressure Release (QR) when the timer goes off.  Once pressure has been released, turn off the machine.
  3. Once pressure has been released, unlock and remove the lid, being careful to watch for any remaining steam. Stir the pasta and cooking water briefly. If needed, remove the pot and drain excess cooking water.
  4. Add the Alfredo sauce and  pepper to the pasta.  Mix well.  Garnish with a small amount of grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.  Serve immediately.
