could i make this recipe in a slow cooker?

You could definitely make this recipe in a slow cooker.

Make as directed in the instructions, except place it in a slow cooker, on low for 5 hours, instead of in the instant pot.

You could also put it on high and cook for 3-4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through. We recommend using thinner chicken breasts or tenderloins, when making this recipe.

    This was the first meal I made in my Instant Pot and I followed the directions exactly but the cream cheese was still in chunk and didn't blend when I mixed it. The juice was so watery with chunks of Cream cheese. I was hoping for a thicker sauce. Any Idea what happened?
    • Using the instant pot has been a learning curve for sure. Here are a few posts with instant pot information. Instant Pots all vary slightly if using a different make and model, and pork tends to dry out easier than other meats, even when cooking in a slow cooker or in the oven. Here is a post we did on some instant pot helps -
  2. Very disappointing. It was chicken soup. It looked very unappetizing on the plate as well. If the sauce would have been thick it would have greatly helped. Directions said nothing about mixing the items together first? The chicken was tender, but I ended up putting the chicken on bread and making chicken sandwiches. It looks like many of the comments are about sauce being too thin. Maybe recipe needs to be altered.
  3. I made this for my family tonight and they LOVED it! I cubed the cream cheese and it melted nicely. I served it over spinach noodles (which my kids just think are regular noodles that I dye green for fun) and it was the best combo. Thank you for such a great meal. Also it was only the 2nd meal I’ve cooked in my instant pot=success!!
  4. Where are you finding GF cream of chicken soup? The only co that has a few GF soups is progressc. Campbell's has none. I saw some Amy's but I don't know if they have cream of chicken. There is Progresso cream of mushroom or chicken enchilada, but they are not condensedlike Campbell's. Maybe our health food store has some. I'm on a strict GF diet and all the store brands of soup as well as Campbell's as wheat in them...right on the label. I could really use some help
  5. Been using my instant pot for over a year but I've never made anything with such a thick sauce. My Instant Pot keeps giving me the "burn" error which I've never seen before so I'm on here double checking if I missed anything. Followed the recipe to a T except I softened the cream cheese enough that I could whisk everything together before cooking. Reading online it looks like this is a common issue with saucy things in the Instant Pot
  6. Mine came out great! The kids went in for seconds. All I did different was put the softened cream cheese in the mixer to make it whipped (which you can also buy) and mixed all the ingredients in the pot then added chicken, PERFECT! And I used no yolk pasta with it. Next I think I’ll add frozen broccoli and the pasta to the pot.
  7. I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I used 3 chicken breasts (about 30oz) and used a ranch packet instead of Italian. So good!! It was pretty thin liquid, but just added a couple tablespoons of flour and it thickened up some. My husband loved it and went back for 3rds! We will definitely make this again!

    From what I've learned making other IP recipes with cream cheese, I did not add it to the pot while cooking the chicken. Too often it curdles. After cooking (chicken breast takes only 8 minutes in my 8 qt. because it takes longer to come to pressure), I removed the chicken to shred, set the pot to saute and added cream cheese, whisking until melted and smooth, then returned the chicken to the pot. It came out perfectly this way.
  9. This is my second time making this delicious dish. We wanted a little bacon flavour, so I browned 4 slices and added them to the chicken mixture. While that was cooking I browned 4 more slices of bacon till they were crisp to garnish when serving. Thank you for the great recipe
    • Hi Jaci. We are so glad to hear that you loved the Instant Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Pasta. Adding the bacon sounds delicious. You might also like our Instant Pot Cheesy Chicken and Rice. It's a favorite. Here is the link Have a great week!
