Instant Pot Chicken Florentine Ingredients
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 halves) cut in to bite-size pieces
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 2 cans/boxes of cream of mushroom soup
- 4-8 cups baby spinach depending on preference
- 16 oz noodles (I mix a whole wheat and regular noodles and I have learned to use rotini or something similar instead of spaghetti just because it can clump)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 4 oz. sliced Mozzarella Cheese
- Parmesan Cheese, salt, and Italian seasoning to garnish
It’s up to you how much spinach you and your family normally enjoy. Just remember that it’s going to shrink down to a fraction of the size. So if it looks like a lot of leafy greens in there, imagine much less in your finished product and adjust accordingly.

How to make Chicken Pasta in a Pressure cooker
Cut up or cube your chicken prior to cooking! Turn on your Instant pot to sauté putting the chicken and broth in first. (Turning it own will help heat up and start to boil so it takes less time to bring your pot to pressure).
Then put all ingredients in the instant pot other than the cheese. I typically prefer to break the spaghetti noodles in half to fit and maintain even sizes of noodles.

After everything is in, you will want to place the cheese slices on TOP of the other ingredients.
It may seem like it’s very liquidy and you may worry it’s too much broth or soup. It’s normally just fine though after cooking. If for some reason it’s too much you can save it to pour over newly cooked noodles.
Finally, put the lid on and switch your pot over to Poultry for 15 minutes.

Use the quick release valve and serve up by itself, with some tomatoes, or some french bread. Top your finished product with some salt, Parmesan cheese, and some Italian seasoning spices.
This also makes a great freezer meal!
Just leave out the noodles and make them when you pull the chicken and sauce out of the freezer.
