I’m usually not a fan of “quick” meals that ask for things to be pre-cooked, but now that I have my Instant Pot, I don’t mind.  I literally threw a pound and a half of frozen chicken in the Instant Pot with a cup of water, pressed poultry, and went to take a nap.  When I woke up the chicken was done, staying warm in the Instant Pot.  Genius.

You can make this in any pan that will boil water and saute.  I’m currently having a love affair with my Rockcrok, so that’s what I used.  I don’t know how it works, but I can cook my pasta without salt and it still tastes great.  Plus, I can cook it in the microwave, which is awesome.

After I microwave the pasta, there’s a bit of liquid left in the Rockcrok.  I use that to thin the alfredo sauce and cook the broccoli.  Then toss in the chicken and you’re done!
