How To Make Ninja Foodi Chicken Alfredo
One of the best things about Ninja Foodi is that you can easily make delicious chicken alfredo. This recipe is easy to follow and only takes a few minutes to prepare. You’ll be able to impress your friends and family with this dish!
Add the olive oil and chicken, and then press the saute button. Press the high button—Brown the chicken on both sides, for about 3 to 5 minutes. Remember to keep moving the chicken around so it doesn’t come burnt on either side.
Press the cancel button, and then add the pasta, water, and seasonings, and mix well. Add the lid, making sure that the vent is in a sealed position. Set the manual high pressure for 5-6 minutes. When the time is up, do a quick release.
Drain the pasta and chicken, return to the Ninja Foodi Bowl, and add cream cheese, and cream, and mix well. Add some more seasonings if you wish.
- Chicken: This recipe is a great way to use up leftovers. It’s easy and quick, too! You can make it with boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts if you like – just remember that they need their meat cooked until at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit before eating!
- Pasta: For tender pasta (and a trick for making pasta in the Ninja Foodi) The pasta should be covered with at least 1 inch in depth. This way it comes out perfectly cooked and tender! Press the pasta down, with either tongs or a spatula.
- Gluten-Free: You can easily make this recipe gluten-free by switching out the pasta to gluten-free, and then just check the other ingredients to make sure they are gluten-free.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How can I make less of a mess when adding the pasta to the Ninja Foodi?
Add the pasta directly to the pot, slowly, this way none of the water splashes you. If you are using long thin pasta, remember to break it in half before adding it to your Ninja Foodi.
How do I prevent the cream from burning in the pot?
Over-stirring the cream sauce and pasta before putting on pressure will make it more likely that you create too much of a stir, which can lead to burning or coming out entirely when releasing steam.
So, for best results, just add the cream into the pot, and do not stir.
How do I prevent the creamy sauce from coming out of the valve when I release the pressure?
Let the Ninja Foodi release all of the pressure, before trying to remove the lid. This way will come out naturally. If you find that too much of the sauce is coming out, close the vent up.
Can I Use A Bottled Sauce?
Yes, I have made this several times making Ninja Foodi Chicken Alfredo with Jar Sauce. YOu can easily make this. Add the sauce with one jar of water.
Some great Chicken Alfredo Suacse that I have tried are:
- Bertolli Alfredo with Aged Parmesan Cheese Sauce
- Walden Farms Light Alfredo Sauce
- Dave’s Gourmet Aged White Cheddar Alfredo Sauce
What Vegetables Can I Add to My Chicken Alfredo?
