Why Choose the Instant Pot for Keto Cooking?
The Instant Pot has become a staple in many kitchens due to its convenience and versatility. It's a multi-functional appliance that combines the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and more.
When it comes to keto cooking, the Instant Pot is a game-changer. It allows you to cook flavorful and tender meats, vegetables, and grains with minimal effort and time.
Plus, its sealed cooking environment helps to preserve the nutrients and flavors of your ingredients.
To create this delectable, low-carb dish, you'll need a few key ingredients:
- 2 Cups Cooked chopped or shredded Chicken: Opt for skinless and boneless, roasted, grilled, or rotisserie chicken. You can also use frozen shredded chicken but add an extra minute (6 minutes) to the cooking time.
- 1 Cup Marinara Sauce: Choose a low-carb, no-sugar-added Marinara Sauce or my Homemade Keto Marinara Sauce to add a burst of tangy flavor.
- 1 ½ Cups Chicken Broth: This helps flavor the sauce and cook the noodles
- 4 ounces Cream Cheese: This will provide a creamy and rich texture to your tomato Alfredo sauce.
- ⅔ Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese: Use shredded (not fresh)Mozzarella cheese for extra flavor and a savory taste.
- 1 ⅔ Cups Low-Carb Lupin Pasta: I used Low-Carb Kaizen Lupin Pasta Noodles in the recipe. If Substituting the lupin pasta with Shirataki noodles, don’t add to the Instant Pot before cooking; cook and drain as directed on the package, and then stir into the Instant Pot after pressure cooking and pressure release are done.
- Parmesan Cheese: Use freshly grated Parmesan cheese to garnish for a nutty and savory taste. * Optional
