  • 1 chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp minced garlic dried
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 lb linguine noodles broken in half
  • 2 tbsp dry ranch mix
  • 3/4-1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup bacon prepped and crumbled


  • Combine broth, heavy cream, garlic, salt and pepper in the liner of the Instant Pot. 
  • Put the 1 inch cubes of chicken into the broth and cream mixture in the  Instant Pot liner. Take care to distribute the chunks evenly around the liner.
  • Place the broken pasta on top of the chicken in the liquid. MAKE SURE ALL NOODLES ARE COVERED WITH LIQUID. Move the pasta around until they are all covered.
  • Secure lid in place, make sure the knob is set to seal. Cook on manual HIGH for 6 minutes NPR for 6 minutes and then QR.
  • The sauce at this point will be very runny, don't be scared. It is supposed to be that way. :) 
  • Stir in the dry ranch dressing mix, mix thoroughly. 
  • Gradually add in the shredded parmesan cheese. Add in small amounts at a time, stirring in-between each addition.
  • Serve in bowls and top with crispy bacon bits. Enjoy!


You can garnish with fresh parsley if you'd like. :)
