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

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.
