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

If you are looking for a vegetarian dinner, you can absolutely skip the chicken and use vegetable broth.

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.

    This was Amazing, everything cooked perfectly including the noodles The flavor was great and I liked the fresh squeezed lemon juice, everyone enjoyed it!!! Will definitely make it again, Thank You❤️

    Very tasty. I did sub out milk for the cream, only because we’re watching our calorie intake. I also added some lemon rind because we love lemon. The noodles were a bit more al dante for my preference, so will maybe increase pressure time by 2 minutes. I even let it sit 5 more minutes after NR.

  3. Keith Phelps

    I followed the recipe exactly as posted and used bags of shredded Parmesan cheese. Fettuccini was cooked perfectly.  No burn notice. I weighed out exact amounts. But…  the flavor was not good to me. It was way too tangy, probably because of the lemon juice.  I used the juice of 1 lemon.  I prefer a more butter taste. Maybe without the lemon juice…. 

  4. Heather W

    This came out amazing. Tasted great. I will use 1/2 cup more of the heavy cream to make it a bit creamer but it was a hit at the dinner table tonight. We added steamed broccoli after mixing in the Parmesan cheese & it was yummy! Thanks for the recipe, will definitely be made again!

  5. Cha

    Hi, thanks for your delicious recipe. If I want to use penne, will I have to change the time? If I double or triple this recipe will I have to increase the time? Thanks

  6. Karina Schubert

    This recipe is so delicious! But I usually have leftovers and I’m not sure how to best re-warm them. It ends up very oily next day. Any ideas?

  7. Tammy Felder

    I prepared it exactly like the recipe stated and it burned and did not cook the noodles throughly. What did I do wrong?

  8. Amy

    This turned out great! Very tasty. Next time though I will add a minute or two to cook time. A few noodles were alittle aldente and I’ll add alittle more both. Thanks for the yummy and easy recipe! 

  9. Dee molina

    Is the Manual setting is different the button pressure cook? When I hit manual nothing happens. Can I do this recipe for 7 at pressure cook setting ? 

    Please help

  10. Kari

    If I wanted to add broccoli to this, would I add it at the beginning and cook it together or cook separately and stir in at the end? And would there be enough sauce if I did both chicken and broccoli?  Thanks!

      I would steam it and add it at the end! And yes, if you add less cheese the sauce will be thinner and go farther. But there should be enough sauce for some added broccoli. 😉 

    1. A woman holding a camera standing in front of some shelves.

      I would add a couple of minutes, and be forewarned, sometimes when trying to use something like Penne, I get the burn notice. Just FYI in case it happens to you!

  11. Tiffany Saliani

    I got a burn notice not long after the insta pot had finally reached pressure. What do I do when this happens. Has it happened to anyone else with this recipe? I turned it off. Released pressure. Stired it. Closed and turned back on. Hoping it turns out okay.

  12. Brooke

    Delicious!  My sauce was a little thin but that’s on me. I misread the recipe and didn’t have enough parm. Even still it was a huge hit and so easy!  

  13. Martha

    Made this tonight. Made a few changes decreased cheese by half. Used precooked grilled chicken. Steamed broccoli in insta pot while with remaining ingredients below. Upon removing lid set broccoli aside, stirred in cheese and added a bit of extra water as my sauce was thick. Added brocolli and 2 Tbs crumbled bacon. Other than brocolli over cooked it was amazing. Next time I will steam brocolli in microwave and add after stirring. Awesome recipe. Thank you!

      Hi Evelyn, I have not tried it in a crock pot, so I do not have any advice. If you do try it, I’d love to know what happens!

  14. Stephanie

    If I want to double or 2.5x the recipe, would I need to add any cook time? I’ve got an 8 qt. Instant Pot and am wanting to cook it for about 10 people and leave out the chicken.

    1. A woman holding a camera standing in front of some shelves.

      Hi Stephanie! I have not tried doubling it or tripling it. I do not know how it would turn out. But if you try it, please report back and let us know how it works out! 

        1. A woman holding a camera standing in front of some shelves.

          Hi Lisa! I tried double/tripling it and my instant pot gave me the dreaded burn message the second time I tried it. So it’s a 50/50 shot of it works in my opinion.
