Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook the linguine noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

Turn on the Instant Pot and select the "Sauté" function. Add olive oil and butter (if using) to the pot and allow them to melt and heat up.

Step 3

Add minced garlic to the Instant Pot and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

Step 4

Add the diced Roma tomatoes to the Instant Pot and sauté for an additional 2 minutes until softened.

Step 5

Season the chicken breast strips with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper.

Step 6

Push the tomatoes and garlic to the side of the pot and add the seasoned chicken breast strips. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes until browned on all sides.

Step 7

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and chicken stock concentrate (or chicken bouillon powder) until well combined.

Step 8

Pour the cream cheese mixture into the Instant Pot and stir well to coat the chicken and tomatoes.

Step 9

Add water to the Instant Pot to provide sufficient liquid for pressure cooking and to avoid burn warnings. Use 1 cup of water.

Step 10

Close the Instant Pot lid and set the valve to the "Sealing" position.

Step 11

Select the "Pressure Cook" or "Manual" setting and set the timer for 5 minutes on high pressure.

Step 12

Once the cooking time is complete, perform a quick pressure release.

Step 13

Carefully open the Instant Pot lid and give the contents a final stir.

Step 14

Add the cooked linguine noodles to the Instant Pot and gently toss with the chicken and sauce until well combined.

Step 15

Sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese over the mixture and stir until the cheese melts and creates a creamy sauce.

Step 16

If desired, add crushed red pepper flakes to the dish for optional heat. Adjust the amount according to your spice preference.

Step 17

Serve the garlic chicken linguine in bowls. If you have it, it can be garnished with fresh parsley.
