plate of fettuccine alfredo and garlic breadA few years ago, I tried fettuccine alfredo and really enjoyed it except the sauce can be a bit overwhelming. This is probably one of the foods that is out of my families comfort zone to eat.


I gave chicken fettuccine alfredo a first attempt using my instant pot. I like how you can control the portion for the sauce so it's not too overwhelming, it was actually a hit in my household!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 3 people


  • 2 boneless chicken breast
  • 3 cloves garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • dash salt & pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 milk
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 6 oz fettuccine noodles
  • 5 oz shredded Romano cheese


  1. I sliced my chicken breast horizontally in half and then cut into lengthwise pieces. Marinate with dash of salt, pepper and garlic powder.

  3. Select Instant Pot feature Sauté > Normal Setting. Add olive oil then chicken breast. Allow to sear on each side for 2-3 minutes then remove from pot and set aside. Initially I used less than 1 Tbsp. olive oil, so I adjusted recipe. Remove chicken from pot.

  9. Add the chicken breasts back in and break fettuccine noodles in half to fit the pot. Using the setting for Pressure Cook > Manual. Cook on high for 7-8 minutes and allow instant pot to naturally release air.

  11. Carefully open lid, and your sauce will appear like a watery consistency do not worry, this is where your parmesan or romano cheese will come in! Stir in cheese. *I ended up not using parmesan cheese, just 3/4 of the 5 oz romano shredded cheese and the remainder as garnishing and for garlic bread (optional).
