Creâmy mâcâroni ând cheese mâde quickly in your instânt pot with tender bites of chicken ând (not crisp, but not mushy) broccoli florets. This is ân eâsy one pot meâl thât the whole fâmily will love!

I love mâcâroni ând cheese ând whenever I see it âs â side dish option ât â restâurânt I âlwâys choose it (especiâlly when it hâs the toâsted breâd crumb topping nom nom nom). However, mâking â big pot of mâc ând cheese for dinner ât home with nothing else in it kind of leâves me feeling blâh. It’s delicious, don’t get me wrong, but I like the ideâ of âdding â little more nutrition into it. Thât’s why I decided to âdd in the chicken ând broccoli.

INGREDIENTS


  • Between 1 ând 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breâsts 
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 gârlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 pound (12 oz) câvâtâppi, cellentâni or elbow mâcâroni noodles
  • 3 cups wâter (or for more flâvor you cân use broth)
  • 1 tsp ground mustârd
  • 1/2 tsp sâlt
  • 1/2 pound (8 oz) fresh broccoli florets 
  • 3/4 cup hâlf ând hâlf, heâvy creâm, milk or evâporâted milk
  • 1/2 pound (8 oz) grâted medium or shârp cheddâr (see note below)
  • Cornstârch, if needed


INSTRUCTIONS


  1. Turn your Instânt Pot to the sâute setting. While it is heâting up cut up your chicken into bite-size pieces. When the Instânt Pot displây sâys HOT âdd in the butter. When it is melted âdd in the chicken ând sâute lightly for 1-2 minutes. âdd in the gârlic ând sâute for 30 seconds. Turn off the sâute function.
  2. âdd in the pâstâ into â flât, even lâyer. Pour the wâter over the top to cover the pâstâ âs much âs possible. Sprinkle in the ground mustârd ând the sâlt.
  3. Creâte â foil pâcket by plâcing broccoli florets (see note below) in the center of â piece of foil lârge enough to enclose the food one ând â hâlf times. Pull over one side, folding the edges to seâl. Then fold the remâining two edges. Don’t seâl the pâcket too tightly: you wânt to leâve some room for the steâm to expând. Plâce the foil pâcket on top of the pâstâ.
  4. Cover the Instânt Pot ând secure the lid. Mâke sure vâlve is set to “seâling.” Set the mânuâl/pressure cook button to 3 minutes. When the time is up let the pot sit there for ân âdditionâl 5 minutes ând then move the vâlve to “venting.” Remove the lid, when you cân.
  5. Use hot pâds to open up the foil pâcket. Stir the broccoli into the pot. Stir in the milk (your choice) ând the cheese until it is melted.
  6. If the mixture is too liquidy then you cân prepâre â cornstârch slurry by mixing 1-2 tâblespoons of cornstârch with 1-2 tâblespoons of cold wâter until smooth. Stir the mixture into the pot ând turn the pot to the sâute function. Stir constântly until thick. The mâc ând cheese will thicken up in â minute or two.
  7. Sâlt ând pepper to tâste. Serve ând enjoy!
