Oh boy! This felt like a gourmet 5 star quality dinner tonight. Best part was it took me no time at all, and as per usual when I cook in the Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi, clean up is a cinch!

Today I am sharing how to make Pesto Pasta chicken Florentine in the Instant Pot.

Not much to this recipe at all. You don’t need a whole lot of ingredients either.

Now that school is officially out I have a feeling my pot will be going into overdrive. I have used it today twice. Once for hard boiled eggs to make egg salad and then for dinner- making this Pasta Pesto Chicken Florentine recipe.

Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.

Chicken Florentine Pesto Pasta in the Instant Pot

Pressure Cooker Pesto Pasta Chicken Florentine

Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 LB Bow Tie Pasta
  • 5 Whole Chicken Breats Cubed
  • 1 Cup White Wine
  • 3 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • 5 OZ Fresh Spinach
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Pesto
  • 1 Handful Pine Nuts
  • Olive Oil To Drizzle


  • First cook your pasta. Either accordingly on the stove top or in your pot. I cooked mine in the pot. I did 3 or more cups of water, submerged my pasta completely in the water and cooked on manual 6 minutes with a quick release. Rinse and set aside.
    NOTES: Whatever pasta you cook in the pressure cooker I typically half the time it directs on the box. Works out perfect for me.
  • Drizzle your inner pot with Olive oil. Add chicken and onion and saute until lightly brown. The chicken should be just about cooked depending on the size you cubed.
  • Remove the chicken and onions from the pot. Add minced garlic, heavy cream, wine and pesto. Bring to high heat stirring consistently.
  • Add chicken back in the pot and simmer some more to be sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  • Add pine nuts (optional) Just a sprinkle or two. Remove sauce from pot and set aside.
  • Add your spinach to pot with a dash of white wine and toss lightly until spinach is simmered down accordingly.
  • Add pasta to your bowl and top with above mixture. If need be you can add in more wine, pesto and heavy cream to pot to acquire more sauce. Keep in mind, this is a bountiful of flavor and when mixed all together it is dynamite.
