Instant Pot Chicken Parmesan Pasta Recipe
- 2 medium chicken breasts (or 1 large)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 tbsp dried onion (minced)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 lb linguine pasta (broken)
- 24 oz jar red pasta sauce (divided)
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (shredded)
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (divided)
Pound Chicken breasts in a large zip top bag until, at the most, 1 inch thick. Add the egg into the baggie. Smash around the egg and chicken until it is completely covered. In a second zip top bag add the flour, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, basil and garlic powder. Transfer the chicken from the egg baggie to the breading baggie. Zip the top and shake to cover the chicken in the breading. Heat the butter in a frying pan on the stove top. Brown each side of the chicken breast until crispy and golden. Set aside.
Add the chicken broth, minced onion and garlic powder to the liner of the Instant Pot. Break the linguine in thirds before adding to the Instant Pot. Add in varying directions spread around the liner. Pour half of the red pasta sauce gently on top of the pasta to create a little bed for the chicken to sit in. Add the chicken to the pot. Set it on the pasta sauce. Pour the remaining pasta sauce over the chicken. Cook on Manual HIGH for 6 minutes. Allow for a 6 minute NPR before releasing the pressure manually. Carefully remove the chicken. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese and let rest. Stir the pasta in the Instant Pot.
Add in the parmesan and remaining mozzarella cheese until it has melted into the sauce. Slice the chicken and serve the chicken on top of the pasta.
