EASY Instant Pot Chicken & Spinach Alfredo

Easy Instant Pot Chicken & Spinach Alfredo

Since I got my Instant Pot I have been toying with new recipes and found one that I absolutely LOVE. It’s incredibly easy to make, you don’t even need to cook the chicken since my recipe calls for using Foster Farms Frozen Shredded Chicken. I always love using Foster Farms when I can and their frozen cooked chickens just make my life that much easier.

Don't know about the taste since I have not made this, but the instructions made sense to me! I don't think the instructions would be specific enough for a newbie to the Instant Pot, though. Maybe that is the issue? -db

This recipe is not good. The instructions are very vague and it did not turn out anything like this description. I'd avoid this until the instructions are clarified.

Can you tell me specifically what the issue is as far as instructions? Which part is vague to you so I can clarify?

I completely missed it (which is completely possible) you did not mention what to do with the chicken breast itself.
