The Easiest Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo Recipe

This mouthwatering recipe is a kid friendly pressure cooker recipe. All the busy Mom’s and Dad’s out there are going to want to pin this recipe (and The best Instant Pot Spaghetti, trust me!). Prior to finding the best method for cooking this amazing chicken alfredo all of the suggested recipes failed. Those failed recipes left me with dried out and over cooked chicken (Yuck). Disappointed I pushed myself to create this easy one pot meal that results in juicy delicious chicken every time.

The best Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo can be made with or without chicken and pairs beautifully with an abundance of veggies. To add a little kick to your alfredo sauce simply add red pepper flakes while sautéing the garlic.



1 15 ounce jar alfredo Sauce

2 chicken breast, cut in half crossways (chicken optional)

8 ounces fettuccini noodles, broken in half

2 cups water

2 tablespoons olive oil or butter

23 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

Optional: 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon Red pepper chili flakes

Freshly grated parmesan parmesan

Parsley, rough chopped


Turn the sauté button on the instant pot and add your olive oil or butter (or 1 tablespoon of each) and the minced garlic and optional red pepper flakes

Cook the garlic for 1 minute or until fragrant, being careful not to burn and immediately turn off the Instant Pot

Add to the pot the water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and stir

Add the broken fettuccini noodles on top of the water spacing evenly

Add the 15 ounce jar of alfredo sauce evenly over the top and DO NOT STIR

Place the 4 pieces of chicken on top of the sauce and noodles, spacing evenly and season with remaining salt and pepper

Place the lid on the instant pot and make sure vent is in the sealing position

Cook on high pressure for 6 minutes and 5 minutes natural release

Immediately remove the lid once pin drops and stir continuously for a couple minutes

When opening the mixture will look soupy and that’s perfect

Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot and shred with two forks

Place the chicken back into the instant Pot

Allow the pasta mixture to sit for 5 minutes before serving, allowing the pasta to finish absorbing all the liquids

Top with desired amount of fresh chopped parsley and parmesan cheese and serve immediately

  1. This recipe is a keeper! It is clearly written and there wasn’t really any fuss when it came time to make it. It was delicious! It tastes like something out of a restaurant. The only thing I did differently was I flattened the chicken breast a bit. It smelled beautiful, my only regret was not having some garlic bread to pair it but we did have a romaine salad with fresh oregano and basil from my backyard. This is now going into our rotation of dinners. I’m usually terrified of chicken because it’s so easy to overlook but this came out perfect and I followed the instructions closely. The result is a tender flavorful chicken. I ended up going back for a little more since it was just so good! If you’re debating an IP Alfredo recipe, look no further. This is it!
