Chicken Fettuccine Instructions

Select Browning/Sauté to preheat the pressure cooking pot. Generously season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and chicken to the cooking pot. Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds more. Stir in the chicken broth, basil, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and 3 minutes cook time.

When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker. Use a quick pressure release. When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid.

In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Add the slurry to the pot. Select Simmer/Sauté and bring the sauce to a boil, stirring constantly until it thickens. Turn off the pressure cooker. Stir in the Parmesan until melted. Stir in the heavy cream, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes.

Add the fettuccine to the cooking pot and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
