How to cook pasta in pressure cooker

When you cook pasta noodles in your instant pot, you want to cover them in liquid as much as possible. This spaghetti noodles will be al dente in 4 minutes under high pressure. If you want you noodles to be on a soft side, cook them for 5 minutes.

Chicken lo mein noodles in instant pot

This recipes is very easy to follow and you whole family will love it. You will need just a bunch ingredients:

  1. chicken thighs
  2. carrots
  3. bell peppers
  4. mushrooms
  5. green onions
  6. spaghetti
  7.  and the rest is seasoning, sauces and broth

Will pasta stick together in instant pot?

Oh yes it is. But it should not be a problem as soon you have forks at  home. All you will need once noodles are ready is to separate noodles with a fork for a minute. It will be pretty easy.

You can absolutely use chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs if you like to. I used thighs because my kids prefer dark meat. Plus its more juicy indeed!

Once the dish is done add plenty of sesame seeds on it and mix. It will add an extra flavor and pretty look.
