Crack chicken pasta allows you to cook your pasta right in the pot with the ranch, chicken, and other ingredients.

Which Pasta should I use?

You can utilize a large variety of pasta, and they all will end up great.

Simply go after a more small-sized pasta like Penne, Elbow, Bow-Tie, with the goal that it fits in the pot pleasantly.

Can I use homemade pasta?

Utilize dry pasta and avoid custom-made as it will not hold up well in the Instant Pot.

Which type of Chicken should I opt for?

Reach for a boneless skinless chicken.

This will dice up pleasantly or even shred so you can have it in each chomp.

In the event that you have extra chicken available that has been softly prepared, you could without much of a stretch supplant it with that too!

What else can I add to my recipe?

  • Add in frozen mixed vegetables or even broccoli (canned veggies don’t hold up under pressure).
  • Sprinkle on hot sauce over the pasta dish when you are ready to serve for a kick of heat.
  • Add on crumbled bacon, extra shredded cheese, and green onions for flavor and variation.

Simply place it in a cooler freezer-friendly container and store it in the cooler for as long as two months.

Any leftovers can be reheated on the stove or microwave.

How to Serve?

As is! You can add fresh salad aside if you really want to feel healthy.
