Serves 8     adjust servings


  • 1 bag of frozen chicken tenderloins - 2 1/2 pounds (un-breaded - approximately 23-25 tenderloins)
  • 6 cups of your favorite pasta sauce
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 1/2 boxes of rigatoni pasta (approximately 1 1/2 pounds of dried pasta)
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella


  1. Place frozen chicken tenderloins, pasta sauce, salt, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, thyme, and oregano, into your Instant Pot. Manually set for 12 minutes.
  2. Once done do a QR for pressure.
  3. With a wooden spoon, break up the pieces of chicken into smaller pieces. They'll be so tender, so this will easily happen.
  4. Add in your pasta, and stir the pasta in the sauce.
  5. Manually set for 5 minutes, and then QR the pressure.
  6. Add parmesan cheese, give it a stir and you're ready to serve!
  7. Serve with shredded mozzarella cheese on top.
