Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie PastaInstant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta is another delicious pasta meal that you can make entirely using your Instant Pot. This one pot dish has all the amazing chicken pot pie flavors, without all the hard work. The pasta replaces the pie crust and it’s coated in the most amazing, creamy sauce. The chicken is tender and juicy, while the veggies are crunchy and chewy. This dish is so easy to make in the Instant Pot, way easier than the skillet version and I am not even talking about the baked pie version.

I have made this Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta already twice this week, and my family is asking for it again over the weekend. This type of meal is exactly what I call comfort food, serve it with some freshly baked buttermilk biscuits and you will not regret it. You can use the biscuits or some crusty fresh bread to soak all that creamy goodness of sauce!

Tips & Tricks on how to make the perfect Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta Recipe:

  • I always say this, but a good meat centered meal starts with quality meat, preferably use organic chicken for this meal.
  • In this recipe you can use chicken breast meat or boneless/skinless chicken thighs meat.
  • You don’t have to pre-cook the pasta for this recipe, you add the uncooked pasta to the pot and cook for 4 minutes.
  • You can make this dish with turkey as well, the cooking time will still be the same if you use the same amount of the other ingredients listed in the recipe.
  • You can add red pepper flakes for it to be spicier or even add some hot sauce or diced jalapeños.
  • You can also add 1 cup if shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese at the end.
  • There is no need to defrost the veggies, you can add them frozen. If you want to add broccoli florets, you will have to steam them first as they are larger.
  • This meal can be made with other types of pasta, I like to use large shells or fusilli pasta.
  • Instant Pot – I have the 6 quarts one. It makes weeknight meals so much easier.
Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Pasta

What is chicken pot pie?

A meat pie that usually has only a top pie crust, and not a bottom one, while there are some variations that have a flaky bottom crust as well. The chicken pot pie filling is usually made with chicken and veggies in a creamy and thick sauce. The pie is baked in the oven.

How do you reheat the Chicken Pot Pie Pasta?

Usually when refrigerated the sauce will thicken and the pasta will also absorb more of the liquid. To reheat, add pasta to a medium-large sauce pan over medium heat and add 1/2 to 1 cup of milk. Start with 1/2 cup, stir to combine and if needed add more, until you achieve the desired sauce consistency. You can also add cream instead of milk, or chicken broth.

  1. How about the recipe for us who don’t own a Instant Pot?

    • Use same steps, just on a stove top in a large sauce pan or deep skillet. After you add the liquid, you will want to simmer on low heat for 12-15 minutes, until the noodles are done, make sure you stir often, so noodles don’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
