Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 45minutes
Total Time 1hour
3large chicken breasts - sliced in 1 inch slices
1Tablespoonof Olive Oil
2teaspoonsof minced garlic
1teaspoonof coarse ground garlic salt
1teaspoonof fresh ground pepper
1Tablespoonof finely minced parsley
3cupsof heavy cream
1cupof chicken broth
1 16ouncepackage of Fettuccine
Slice the Chicken breasts in 1 inch slices, and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Turn the Instant Pot to 'SAUTE' and add the butter and olive oil. When butter has melted, add the chicken, and stir well.
Brown chicken on both sides, and continue to cook chicken until it's completely done, about ½ an hour, on the low setting. When chicken is done, and no longer pink in the center, remove to a foil lined plate, wrap up chicken, and set aside. Make sure there is butter left in the bottom of the instant pot - if no butter is left, or not enough, add 1 Tablespoon - turn the Instant Pot to SAUTE, and melt the butter, then add the garlic and Saute for 2 minutes.
Turn off the Saute setting, and add the chicken broth, and de-glaze the pot. Add the cream, and sprinkle a little garlic salt over the cream.
Break the Fettuccine noodles in half, and add to the Instant pot, and stir the pasta, making sure the pasta is covered by the cream and chicken broth. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, and make sure the pressure valve is set to 'SEALING', and press the MANUAL setting, and set the time to 2 minutes.
When the Pasta is finished cooking, and the pot beeps and goes to off, let the Instant Pot sit for 5 minutes, then do a quick release, by carefully, and with a pot holder, turning the pressure valve to 'VENTING', and allow all the pressure to release, and when the float valve drops down, then remove the lid to the Instant Pot.
Stir the cream mixture with the noodles, and let sit for one minute. Add the Parmesan cheese to the Fettuccine noodles, and stir well to blend cheese into noodles. Add the chicken back into the Instant Pot, and toss with Fettuccine. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and finely chopped Parsley.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
NOTE: To de-glaze a pan (or pot in this instance) let the chicken broth sit in the pot for a few minutes, allowing the bits on the bottom of the pot to soften a little. With a wooden spoon, scrape the bits off the bottom of the pot and stir into the chicken broth. This will give the sauce a really great flavor.30 Weight Watchers Smart Points Per Serving on the Freestyle Program
