Manny’s Awesome Party Pasta Dish

By , August 25, 2015

Manny N.
2 Chicken Breasts cut into slim strips ¼” by 1” approximately, about 2 Lbs. / 907 grams
1 can of cream of mushroom soup 10.5 oz / 298 grams
3 tbs butter
1 tbs virgin olive oil
2 cups of chicken stock
1 green bell pepper chopped 6 oz / 170 grams
1 medium size sweet onion chopped 7.5 oz / 213 grams
1 jalapeño pepper chopped 1.2 oz / 34 grams
1 can Ro*TEL Diced tomatoes Regular or Hot 10 oz / 283 grams, I used Hot
½ tsp granulated garlic
¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz / 226 grams Velveeta cheese
1 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce
1 package of spaghetti pasta 16 oz / 455 grams

Turn on the electric pressure cooker and set it to sauté mode, if not you can do this on a pan on the stove. Add the butter and the olive oil and when it gets hot add the chicken and sauté for about 10 minutes.
If you cooked in on the stove put it back in the pressure cooker including the liquid on the pan. Now, cut the spaghetti pasta into about ¼ of the size of the original sticks (I know Italians will kill me for this but it is the only way to cook it in the IP) and add it to the pot on top of the chicken then add the rest of the ingredients on top of the pasta except for the cheese and close the lid. Cook in steam mode for 6 minutes and then do a quick release.
Add the cheese and stir until everything is well mixed.

Enjoy with garlic bread toasts and a glass of your favorite wine!

Kimberly’s Taco Soup

By , June 6, 2015

Kimberly’s Taco Soup

Four bone-in chicken thighs (skin removed)
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup black beans (I had frozen ones that I’d done in my crockpot)
1 cup salsa
1 cup chicken broth (or as much as you want to thin your soup)
2 tbsp taco seasoning (I make my own)
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/4 cup diced sweet pepper (colour of your choice)
1 tsp coconut oil

On Sauté, melt the oil and add the onion and pepper. After a few minutes add the chicken, brown on both sides.

Add remaining ingredients, put the lid on and use “soup” setting for four minutes. Remove chicken, let it cool enough so you can remove the bones, then shred and put back in the pot.

Serve with a bit of shredded cheddar and sour cream on top and a few nacho chips (I used homemade creme fraiche instead of sour cream, SO easy!).

Homemade Dog Food

Homemade DOG Food submitted by Anita W.

1 1/3 cup brown rice
1/4 cup green lentils
1 large potato, cubed
1 sweet potato, cubed
handful of kale or chard stems or several whole leaves, chopped several sprigs of parsley, chopped or 1 cube frozen
1/2 tsp salt, preferably sea salt
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
3 1/2 cups water
1 chicken leg quarter
optional: 1 chicken liver or other giblet

Combine all ingredients in the pressure cooker pot, laying the chicken on top.
Seal and cook on high pressure for 23 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally.
Pull the chicken from the bone and mix it back into the cooked rice. Refrigerate.

Serving size depends on the nutrition requirements of your dog. I feed this as one of 2 meals daily to my black lab and it makes about 5 servings. At nearly 15 years old she is still extremely healthy and I credit that in part to this quality food.

I buy chicken quarters in a 10 pound bag and freeze the pieces individually. It can be added frozen to the pressure cooker.

When fresh parsley is abundant I chop it, pack it in ice cube trays and top them with a bit of water before freezing. I have frozen parsley cubes to add all winter.

Chicken Romano

By , April 28, 2015

Submitted by Jennifer Z, AKA BuzyZGirl as an adaptation of a recipe found in “Miss Vickie’s Big Book of Pressure Cooker Recipes”

an instructional video can be found here: Instant Pot Chicken Romano


½ cup flour (all-purpose) **
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken (I cut mine into bite-sized chunks)
2 tbsp oil
1 onion minced
1 (10-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 tsp vinegar
1 (4-ounce can – I used fresh) sliced mushrooms
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp garlic – minced
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp chicken bouillon granules
1 cup Romano cheese

** I did not coat the chicken in flour I added later (I mixed 1 tbsp room temperature butter with 1 tbsp flour into a paste and add to cooked sauce to thicken)

Sauté chicken in oil until chicken starts to brown. Add onion and garlic and cook until they start to become translucent. Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT Romano cheese. Stir to combine ingredients. Secure the Instant Pot lid and ensure the pressure valve is set to pressure. Select the manual option and set timer for 10-minutes. After the 10-minutes is complete and the Instant Pot has moved into the keep warm mode allow 10-minutes to pass and then release pressure by turning the pressure valve to the steam position. Remove lid and add Romano cheese and stir. At this point I added the butter-flour paste-mixture to thicken sauce. Serve over pasta, rice, or enjoy on its own.

Chicken soup in Instant Pot

By , January 17, 2015

Submitted by Busyzgirl


  • Two frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts –
  • Four washed medium size diced potatoes (I did not peel you can if you want)
  • Three peeled carrots chopped into similar size as potatoes for even cooking time
  • Half a large onion diced
  • Four cups of water and chicken concentrate/bullion of your choice to equal 32 ounces – or if you have it use chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste (flavors will intensify while under pressure)


  • Turn on Instant Pot to Manual and set timer for 35-minutes.
  • Let Instant Pot depressurize for 15-minutes then release pressure. Open when all pressure is released stir and enjoy.

This is by no means the only way to make Chicken soup – this is how I chose to make it today as an experiment. When I cook on the stove for up to three hours I use a different recipe.

Filipino Chicken Adobo Recipe

By , February 20, 2014

Submitted by Jessica R.

I basically looked “Balsamic Chicken Thighs” for just the COOKING TIMES and used the recipe found here

If you are too lazy to read the links above then you basically need the following ingredients:


  • 4 -5 lbs. chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. black peppercorns
  • 3 bay leaves


1) Set your Instant Pot to the Poultry setting and add the chicken and all ingredients. You do not have to saute anything.

2) Close the lid, and cook for 15 minutes.

3) Serve with white Jasmine rice, Calrose white rice or at my house we serve with Nishiki white rice. (You can buy Calrose or Nishiki at Amazon or Asian market).

You can also use chicken breasts but my mom would use a mixture of drumstick, thighs, breasts with bone in it. Unfortunately I do not know the cooking times for this in the instant pot.
