Instant Pot meals are quickly becoming a favorite of mine on night we are busy and don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking but still want a nice meal.  We probably use our Instant Pot more in the fall and winter than we do in the spring and summer because it’s great for warm and hearty meals.  Recently we made Instant Pot Chicken Bruschetta Pasta.  It was delicious! The chicken was moist and tender, the noodles were al dente (I hate when they become too soft and mushy), and the bruschetta topping added some lovely color and a bit of freshness to the dish.  The flavors pair well together and left us feeling quite satisfied!

The recipe can be found here.

Start by preparing your ingredients – the ingredients you will be putting in the Instant Pot.  Slice the chicken, mince the garlic, etc.  Then, add the ingredients to the Instant Pot in the following order: olive oil, chicken, garlic, water, diced tomatoes (plus the liquid from the can), and the rotini noodles (uncooked).

Close the lid and make sure the valve is in the SEALED position.  Pressure cook on HIGH for 5 minutes.  Once done, quick release the steam.  The Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to pressurize before the 5 min cook time starts.  This is plenty of time to cook the chicken through because you cut it into bite sized pieces.

While the chicken and noodles cook, make the bruschetta.  Drain and dice the tomatoes, dice the onion, and mince the garlic.

Then, add the diced tomatoes, onion, olive oil, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl.  Stir to combine and set aside until ready to use.

Once the pressure is completely released, remove the lid, and add the parmesan cheese. Stir to combine.

Add the bruschetta mixture and stir to combine.

Spoon into bowls and serve warm with additional chopped basil and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.  Enjoy!

It’s a pretty simple yet delicious meal that is ready from start to finish in about 20 minutes (including prep and cook time).  I bet this recipe will be a crowd pleaser at your house!

Happy Cooking!
