  • 1.251.5 pounds of chicken breast

  1. Add chicken breast to instant pot along with chicken stock cubes and 1 cup of the chicken stock. Set instant pot to poultry setting and cook for 19 minutes.
  2. When finished cooking, release steam and remove chicken breasts. Shred with a fork and place back into the instant pot along with the pasta and 1/2 – 1 cup of chicken stock. Be sure sure pasta is fully submerged in chicken stock, so it fully cooks.
