Instructions

Plug in the electric pressure cooker.

Pour the chicken broth and water into the pot.

Place the uncooked pasta into the pot and be sure as much of it as possible is covered with the broth and water.

Pour the condensed cream of chicken soup on top of the pasta.

Sprinkle the dressing mix on top of the condensed soup.

Pour the can of drained tomatoes on top of the soup.

Place the uncooked chicken into the pot.

Put the lid onto the pressure cooker and close it to seal.

Set the pressure cooker to cook for 4 minutes on manual high pressure.

Once the cooking time has completed, do a quick manual pressure release.

Put the pieces of cream cheese into the pot and stir well.

Put the lid back onto the pressure cooker and then let sit for 5 minutes, giving time for the cream cheese to melt.

Uncover the pressure cooker and stir once more.

Serve immediately.

Enjoy!

So, basically:
Cook everything but the cream cheese for 4 minutes.
Add cream cheese and cook for 5 minutes..

Pretty close, for the 5 minutes for the cream cheese you’re just leaving it in there with the lid on using heat that’s already there to melt the cream cheese.

It’s amazing what you can do with a can of chicken soup. A friend of mine used to make a pretty decent curry with it.

Can’t wait to try this! Looks so good! One question…The list of ingredients includes 4 cups chicken broth, but the instructions say “add broth and water.” How much water are we supposed to use in addition to the broth?

Haven’t used my pressure cooker for ages because of the summer so was looking for something more suitable for the weather and this is perfect.

Yes! I never turn the oven on for about half of the year, anytime it’s warm. Truth be told a pressure cooker is my go to most nights now.
