A fun twist on the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu dish we love so much. Done in the Instant Pot it makes a quick and easy weeknight meal that’s full of creamy cheesy goodness.
Seems like we want everything instant these days, why not try a fun twist on the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu dish, we love so much. Adding pasta is a good way to make a meal stretch to feed more mouths and done in the Instant Pot it makes a quick and easy weeknight meal that’s full of creamy cheesy goodness.
This was my first time trying pasta in the Instant Pot, or actually what I have is the Crock-Pot Express, which is basically the same thing, but I chose that one because it is non-stick pot and it’s about $30.00 cheaper. There’s an article from Consumer Reports comparing the two if your considering a purchase.
Now, I was a little hesitant to try pasta in it, because I’m pretty picky on the doneness of my pasta and I’m not going to lie, it did come out on the overcooked side. So if your worried about that you can make the pasta on the stove and drain it like normal, just add one cup of chicken broth instead of three to the Instant pot. Then mix it all together to serve and top it off with that yummy Dijon Cream Sauce and Toasted Crumb topping, if you cutting out butter, you can toast in olive oil as well.
Now I didn’t jump on the bandwagon right away for these electric pressure cookers. I’ve been cooking without them for so many years I didn’t really care about having another new appliance to try to deal with, but I kept hearing how wonderful they are. I finally broke down and said if we could get one on a good sale we’d try it out and I’m happy we did because it makes the most tender juicy meat ever. This Pork Loin with a Sweet Balsamic Mushroom Sauce was the best, and my Instant Pot Beef Bourguignon just practically melts in your mouth it’s so tender. So I’m sure we’ll be coming up with lots more recipes to try, hope you follow along!
