Tools for Instant Pot Tuscan Chicken Pasta

*Note: The flavor-boosting browning steps are optional. For an easy meal, you can make this into a “dump and push start” Instant Pot One Pot Meal. 🙂

1

Optional: Brown Chicken Thighs in Instant Pot


Heat up Instant Pot using “Sauté More” function.

*Tip: For older versions – press “Saute” button, then “Adjust” button. For newer versions – press “Saute” button twice.

Wait until it says “HOT” (takes roughly 8 minutes).

Add 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter in Instant Pot. Swirl the inner pot to ensure the butter evenly covers the whole bottom of the inner pot.

Season one side of the chicken generously with salt & black pepper.

Add the chicken thighs in Instant Pot (skin side down), then brown each side for 3 ½ minutes.

Love all your one pot meal recipes. This one is a new favorite. Yields so much pasta (great for meal preps) and have shared my extras with co-workers. I tell everyone I know who owns an IP to check out your site. Thanks 🙂

Well I have to say that it’s not the fastest meal to make by any means but my gosh it’s delicious! Worth every second of browning and shredding. I used 8 boneless, skinless thighs and it made enough for an army lol! I fed 4, and there’s enough left over for another full meal for all of us. The only thing I did “wrong” was use a whole jar of sun dried tomatoes. It was awesome! Thank you for the recipe. Now I gotta figure how many ww points I just consumed ??

How would you adjust this to be without pasta?

Thank you for more ‘dump and push start’ recipes! I recently bought an instant pot to make super tender ribs (using your recipe!) for my 1-year-old. Your chicken congee and pasta Bolognese are on constant rotation now 🙂 In fact, every recipe on this site that I’ve tried so far is a winner!

Great Recipe and very easy. My whole family loved it! I do have a question though. Could I use boneless skinless chicken thighs and if so, would the cooking time be the same? It just seems like there is no use to using bone-in skin-on chicken thighs if you shred the chicken and remove the skin. Thanks again for a great recipe!

Used chicken breast instead of thighs… chicken breast was too dry. Might try with thighs next time or shorter browning time at the start. Also I enjoy more veggies than pasta so added 2x as many mushrooms, spinach and sundried tomatoes 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

Recipe says skinless chicken breasts or thighs. Direction say brown skin side down first. Picture show skin on thighs. Should it be bone in, skin on thighs???
