How To Make The Best One Pot Chicken Alfredo
The key to the spectacular flavor is good ingredients.
Since it’s such a simple basic recipe, the ingredients really get a chance to shine.
Make sure you use fresh lemon and garlic. You want to use heavy cream, not half and half.
Yes, I know half and half is less calories/fat, but this is not a dish you make on a diet!!
You also want to make sure you buy a good quality parmesan cheese, the freshly grated kind in the refrigerated section, not the kind in a shaker can.
The last (optional) ingredient is the shredded chicken.
You can make your own shredded chicken or just buy a rotisserie chicken for an easier dinner.
You Can Customize This Alfredo Pasta Recipe To Fit Your Taste
Alternatively, you can top the Instant Pot Fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp or steak once it’s done cooking!
It’s easy to make your own and adapt to whatever leftover meat you already have in the fridge.

- 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- juice of 1 lemon
- 2 garlic cloves, minced

- 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
- 12 oz shredded parmesan cheese
Add the broth, cream, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and noodles to the instant pot in that order. DO NOT STIR, but make sure all noodles are covered in the liquid (to do this, just gently push them until the fall below the liquid level).
Top pasta with chicken. Place lid onto instant pot, lock the lid and close the seal to the pressure cook setting.
Set your Instant Pot to Manual pressure on high for 7 minutes and then let it naturally release its pressure for an additional 10 minutes then do a quick release.
Gradually stir in the parmesan cheese, until creamy! Serve immediately!
