    I was wanting to know how long do we cook this on the pressure cook option. It doesn't state anywhere how long to cook or on what option

    This was really good. It’s just my husband and I so I cut the pasta back to 8 ounces and the chicken broth to 2 1/4 cups. It was still plenty for more than two meals for us. This will definitely be a keeper for us! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    This was super easy to make on a Tuesday night between running kids to sports. My family of 5 loved it! I doubled the chicken because it was how much I had available to cook & it turned out great. Thank you!

    I was looking for a recipe using chicken and heavy cream (things I had on hand that I needed to use) and stumbled upon this recipe. It was absolutely delicious - my family of 5 (including 3 picky children) loved it and called it a “keeper”. Directions were simple and easy to follow and need no for any adjustments!

    In the ingredients it says chicken broth, but in the instructions it says chicken stock. I’m not sure if it matters, but which should I use?
