One of our family’s favorite recipes is this delicious Creamy Tuscan Chicken with Pasta! If you love easy recipes that taste amazing…you have to give this one a try! It is so easy to make especially if you have an Instant Pot. You literally drop everything in the Instant Pot and dinner is on the table is less than an hour! No extra work or dirty dishes!

We love it as a regular Chicken dish but it is also amazing paired with your favorite type of pasta like campanelle or penne! Since getting our Instant Pot, I have taken a lot of our recipes and adapted them so that they can be made in the Instant Pot. This has been so helpful for us as a busy family on weeknights. We are able to enjoy a delicious easy weeknight recipe that we can throw into the Instant Pot and make in half the time!

Here is how we make our Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken with Pasta in our Instant Pot.

In an instant pot insert stir together broth, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (season with more at the end if needed).

Stir in chicken and pasta (and try to submerge down into broth).

Secure the lid in place, be sure pressure valve is set to “sealing” position. Select the “manual” setting or high pressure and set to 5 minutes.

After the time is up select “cancel” then use the quick release method to release pressure – which is to carefully turn the valve to “venting” position and step back as steam will release.

Once it stops sputtering open lid and immediately stir noodles to separate then stir in spinach, light cream cheese and parmesan.

Toss well. Let rest for about 5 – 10 minutes to thicken (it will seem like soup at first but as it rests and cools it will thicken right up).

Toss in basil just before serving and serve warm (you can also garnish with a few diced sun dried tomatoes if desired).

Add this to your menu this week! You will be so glad you did! This is a recipe the kids ask for often, so it is in our family menu on a rotation! It never disappoints and is the perfect comfort food on a cold day!

CREAMY TUSCAN CHICKEN ON THE STOVE


Cook the chicken on the stove in a little oil and a medium saucepan until it is cooked all the way through. A few minutes on each side. Then cube your chicken. In a saucepan bring all the ingredients except for the pasta to a simmer and then add the chicken until it is warm. At the same time you are cooking the ingredients in a pan on the stove, cook your pasta according to the package directions. Mix everything together and let sit for 5 minutes before serving!
