My husband and I pass each other on the road all the time—going he’s home from work while I’m doing the carpool shuffle between the kids’ practices. The fact that this dish is so easy is one of the reasons it’s a homerun (apart from the fact that it tastes fantastic). Look at this: Except for the parmesan cheese, I throw everything into the Instant Pot (it takes approximately 7 minutes to cook)… After that, I’m out of the home. My husband adds the cheese when he comes home, and it’s done! #SoEasyMyHusbandCanDoIt

What is the composition of fettuccine alfredo sauce?

Alfredo sauce is a basic creamy white sauce that is often served over pasta. It’s usually prepared by combining butter, milk or cream, and parmesan cheese. For a thicker consistency, some folks add cream cheese. Others use milk instead of cream to make a lighter, thinner sauce. There are minor differences, as well as strong seasonings.

What can I put in my alfredo fettuccine?

On this one, the sky is the limit! You may always toss spaghetti with Alfredo sauce and 1 cup of your favorite veggies. Fish, shrimp, scallops, chicken, beef, or ham may all be added! Cleaning through my refrigerator for foods that are about to expire and tossing them in a creamy home-made Alfredo with some pasta is one of my favorite things to do. I like to combine onions, carrots, zucchini, and corn in a sauté pan with Alfredo sauce. With this go-to sauce, it’s difficult to go wrong!


Quick Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo Ingredients:

  • Noodles Fettuccini
  • heaviness of cream
  • Broth made with chicken
  • Chicken that has been cooked
  • Juice of a lemon
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Garlic

To prepare our Quick Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo, follow these steps:

To begin, mix together the broth, heavy cream, lemon juice, and garlic in the instant pot.


After that, cut the Fettuccini noodles in half and add them to the liquid mixture. To completely emerge the noodles, gently handle them with a spoon or a form. The liquid should cover all of the noodles.


Place the shredded chicken on top of the noodles once it has been cooked. It’s OK if the chicken isn’t completely submerged in liquid (like pictured).


Set the valve to ‘seal’ and place the instant pot cover on top. Set the instant pot on high for 7 minutes on manual. Allow the mixture to naturally release for 10 minutes after the 7-minute timer has expired. After 10 minutes, gently discharge the remaining steam by turning the top valve to the ‘vent’ position. Open the cover after all of the steam has been released and gently whisk in 2 cups of parmesan cheese. Serve and have fun!


Great Side Dishes:

After seeing my grandmother prepare Alfredo sauce from scratch as a child, I assumed it would be an all-day affair needing a degree of skill above my qualifications. Meals like these were intimidating since in my home, using bottled Alfredo sauce in recipes was never a big hit. This recipe, which took a few of tries to perfect, matched the excellent flavor we wanted with the simplicity we required in our life.
