Instant Pot Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo – One Pot Dish for Busy Weeknights!
Need a true one-pot meal idea using the Instant Pot?
What if I said you can make a homemade Fettuccine Alfredo meal at home in under 30 minutes with your Instant Pot pressure cooker?! IT’S TRUE, and one of my favorite Instant Pot hacks! I love that you can cook fettuccine noodles, meat, and sauce all together like this.
This quick idea uses simple ingredients and results in a cheesy garlic cream sauce that’ll turn into a comforting family favorite for sure! I love that you can use the sauté function on the Instant Pot to brown the meat first, then compile sauce and add in the fettuccine noodles. So easy!
Tips for making the best Instant Pot fettuccine alfredo:
- You can use chicken breasts or chicken thighs for this recipe. I have tried it used both, and they both turned out great.
- Make sure to use a spatula to scrape the bottom of the inner pot well after browning the chicken to avoid getting a burn notice from your Instant Pot.
- Do a natural release on the pressure after the cooking time for at least 6-7 minutes or so, which means you leave it alone to release pressure on its own for a bit. If you try a quick release, the sauce could splatter everywhere.
- The mixture may look a little watery at first after cooking, but stir in the parmesan cheese and it will thicken nicely as it cools!

I’ve made this easy weeknight meal idea a few times now. It’s my kids’ favorite pasta dish… they really LOVE it!
Making Fettuccine Alfredo in the Instant Pot ROCKS! You can’t beat just one pot to wash too! EASY and DELICIOUS! I usually steam a veggie like broccoli to serve with it as well.
Keep this meal in mind during busy weeknights to make life easier. 😊
My teammate Jenna LOVED this recipe! Here’s what she said :
“My kids were just asking for fettuccine alfredo for dinner, so this was perfect. I have never made it in the Instant Pot, but I will never make it without my Instant Pot again!
My favorite part (besides that the noodles go uncooked right into the pot) was that there was no need for three pans going at once, it all cooks together! Usually I am making the chicken in one pan, noodles in another, and a sauce in a third! Not only is this so much easier and quicker, but it tastes amazing. This whole recipe worked out beautifully!”
