This recipe was a huge hit! I loved it! It was pretty simple to make as well, all in one pot! (Besides the grilled cheese of course).
1 tbsp butter
1 small onion diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 (28-oz.) can diced petite tomatoes
3 tbsp tomato paste
4 cups 4-cheese tortellini, frozen
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup frozen (thawed a bit) chopped spinach
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and flour and whisk to combine. Cook about 1 minute.
Add broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, and tortellini. Bring to a boil, and then simmer about 10 minutes or until tortellini is cooked.
Add the cream and Parmesan cheese and stir. Add spinach and cook for a couple minutes.
1 1/2 Cups Cut Carrots (I used baby carrots and sliced them up)
2 Celery Stalks, Chopped
2 Medium Potatoes, Cubed
2 Chicken Breasts
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth (I always use low sodium broths)
1 Tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Flour
2 Tbsp Butter Softened
1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Cup Frozen Peas
1 Tsp Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Select the saute function on the Instant Pot and add the oil.
Add the onion, carrots, and celery. Stir and cook for a few minutes. Add the potatoes, chicken, broth and salt and pepper. Secure the lid.
Select manual and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, unroll crescent roll dough and place on baking sheet. (I used foil and sprayed beforehand). I also added a little spritz of spray butter and garlic powder with a pinch of parsley flakes. Bake for about 12 minutes or until desired brownness.
Once pressure cooking is complete, use a quick release. Remove the chicken and slide into cubes (bite-size).
Select saute on the pot.
In a small bowl combine the flour and butter into a smooth paste. Add the paste into instant pot along with cream and peas. Cook, stirring until the paste is dissolved about 4 minutes. Add the chicken and season to taste.
Enjoy! I served ours in a bowl with the crescent roll on top/side.
Talk about a super easy and amazing home-cooked meal! This meal is so much simpler and faster then you could ever imagine, thanks to the Instant Pot! I didn’t have much camera success today taking a good image. See below for a few more photos. 🙂
Talk about another huge Instant Pot success! Derek has been in the fall mood and most definetaly craving the pumpkin lately, so I decided to get to work and make this cheesecake. It’s simple to make as well!
Anyone that knows me already knows how much I love my Instant Pot. What you may not know is one of my favorite things to cook in it is chicken. It’s amazing how easy it is and how juicy the chicken comes out. This was a super simple recipe that was a hit for us! 🙂
