Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into thin strips (about 3 thighs)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 and 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 and 1/4 cups chicken stock, refer notes (I used 33% less sodium)
  • 8 ounces fettuccine pasta, broken in half
  • 1 teaspoon salt (refer notes) or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley ( or 1 teaspoon dried parsley)

Instructions

  1. Heat Instant pot to saute mode. 

  2. When hot, add butter and let it melt. Add sliced chicken strips (try to squeeze in a single layer), cook for 1-2 minutes and then toss them around for another 1-2 minutes, until no longer pink on the outside. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon onto a plate. (If you are cooking in a smaller Instant pot, then cook chicken in 2 batches). 

  3. Add chopped onion and garlic into the pot and saute for 2 minutes, until it gets translucent. 

    Add heavy cream and let it come to a boil. 

  4. Stir in chicken stock, fettuccine (broken in half to fit into the pot), salt, pepper and chicken (along with amy accumulated juices. Stir well to distribute. 

  5. Select manual cooking mode and set for 7 minutes (normal pressure). Make sure the valve is in sealing position. 

    Once cooking time is done, let it be in warm mode for 10 minutes. Release pressure by turning the valve to vent.

  6. Unplug, open lid, add parmesan and parsley. Stir well. (The sauce will be very liquidy at this point)

    Cover and let it rest for 10 minutes for the pasta soak up all that sauce.  

  7. Serve into plates garnishing with additional parmesan and parsley, if desired. 

    (If pasta is not served immediately or if the sauce has thickened up too much upon cooling, then just stir in some milk to loosen up). 

Recipe Notes

I used 33% less sodium chicken stock and found 1 teaspoon salt to be perfect. 

If you are using normal chicken stock and reduce salt. 

I used a 3-quart Instant pot for this recipe and cooked the chicken in two batches (making sure not to overcrowd the pot).
