This Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo is going to be an instant family favorite. You are able to make a homemade chicken alfredo in under 30 minutes, a perfect weeknight meal. A no-fuss chicken alfredo recipe, that can be made in no time. Add this pressure cooker recipe to your menu, and you can thank me later.
Have you ever made homemade alfredo sauce before? If you haven’t, you are so missing out. I will be honest, I tried the jars of alfredo sauce, and it just didn’t work for me and my family. We found them to be bland or funky, and I thought I have to make homemade. I created an alfredo sauce that is adapted for my pot, and I will NEVER look at the jar sauce again.
You are able to cook your meat and pasta all in your Instant Pot without having to pull out every pot and pan you own for a stovetop version! Can I get a heck ya?! I mean come on, supper really can’t get much easier, thanks to your Instant Pot.
When friends ask me do I truly need an electric pressure cooker, I always say no. You don’t have to own one, but I will say it is beyond handy and has really eased up my life in terms of saving time in the kitchen, being versatile, and it uses less energy so it saves me money! So ask yourself, do you need one? I wanted one, so I bought it, the best decision I have ever made!
Can You Freeze Chicken Alfredo
This chicken alfredo recipe makes quite a bit. We saved back half of it and froze it for another meal (I have directions for freezing below) and it reheated beautifully. Meals like this I love to make and save some back and then have for a future meal. I stockpile my freezer and on those nights I absolutely don’t want to cook, I pull out a freezer meal and re-heat.
Or cut the recipe in half and freeze half of your sauce. Then you can use the sauce over pasta, or create a shrimp or chicken alfredo at another time! Thaw and reheat method.
