What to Serve With Tuscan Chicken Pasta

With a rich and creamy chicken pasta dish like this Tuscan Chicken, finding a side dish to help make the meal feel complete without taking away from the star of the show is somewhat of a challenge.

I think this dish pairs really well with roasted green beans or broccoli and a simple side salad, although Italian flavored pastas often need garlic bread or soft breadsticks to help make them feel restaurant quality. 

Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Can You Use Cream in The Pressure Cooker?

Adding dairy products to the begining of an Instant Pot recipe can cause it to curdle, but adding heavy cream towards the end is usually a safe bet. Thanks to the high fat content the cream is much less likely to seperate. So yes, you can use it.

How Long Do You Cook Pasta in The Instant Pot?

Depending on the type of noodle and your desired level of doneness, most pastas can be completely cooked in the Instant Pot within a matter of minutes. With the average time being around 5 minutes, it really doesn’t take long at all to get a delicious pasta meal prepped and ready for eating!

Does a Pressure Cooker Make Meat Tender?

Yes! One of the greatest things about using a pressure cooker to cook your meat is that due to the fast heating process and small moisture filled environment, your meat is forced to absorb and cook quickly which can make your meat much more tender (and quickly!)

Can I use Frozen Chicken Tenders? 

Yes you certainly can use frozen chicken tenders. Just account for the frozenness by adding a little time to the process and you’ll be fine. You should be good by simply increasing the cooking time to 6 minutes.
