Welcome to my latest Instant Pot recipe and this delicious recipe is for Instant Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta Broth. Add the flavours of Mexico to your Instant Pot along with a stunning chicken broth and you end up with this perfect mid week dinner.
I probably don’t say this enough but I just love Mexican food and if I had to choose one type of Mexican food it would have to be cajun. It is not over spiced so when my husband is complaining about too much spice I can cook up some flavoursome cajun food instead.
This dish has been created for the following reasons:
- To use up my chicken bone broth as I have so much of it thanks to creating it with every spare chicken carcass I now have.
- It is not too spicy therefore perfect for my 2 year old daughter who is still developing her favourite flavours.
- It is quick and incredibly simple for a one pot Instant Pot meal.
Now the last one is by far my favourite on here. How often do you see an Instant Pot recipe and discover that you have to add 20 ingredients and that the recipe would have been easier to make in the oven rather than in the Instant Pot.
Well this recipe is perfect for all of you Instant Potters out there. You throw the ingredients in, then put the lid on and let the Instant Pot do all the work for you. We also find that not only is it great mid week with some fresh bread but it is also just as good for a nice Friday night supper.
However when we tested this dish for the first time it was a last minute late night Saturday night meal. We then did it again for lunch a couple of days later.

Just like with using a watery stock always have the same amount in stock as you do in pasta so that the pasta will cook properly and so that it will go to pressure in a timely manner.
