Pressure Cooker Chicken Mac-and-Cheese Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (480 g) boneless and skinless chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1/2 pound (240 g) dried elbow macaroni
  • 1½ cups half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1½ cups (365 ml) shredded Cheddar cheese

Method

Step 1

In a 6-quart (6 L) electric pressure cooker, combine the chicken and macaroni. Pour 6 cups (1½ L) water over chicken and macaroni.

Step 2

Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 8 minutes.

Step 3

Using The Quick Release method, bring pressure to normal. Unlock and open the lid. Drain cooked chicken and macaroni into a large colander set in the sink.

Step 4

Turn the electric pressure cooker to browning function. Add the half-and-half, all-purpose flour, mustard, thyme, and seasoning. Cook, whisking, until bubbling and thickened, for about 2-3 minutes.

Step 5

Turn off the pressure cooker. Add the cooked pasta, chicken, and Cheddar cheese. Cook, stirring until cheese has melted. Serve hot.
