You will need a pressure cooker to make this Instant Pot recipe.

I am using an 8 quart Instant pot but you can use a 6 quart. I personally have an Instant Pot and so far I am loving it.

If you have been putting off trying an instant pot, I highly recommend going ahead and biting the bullet. I love using the pressure cooker when I don’t have much time.

It is perfect for frozen food or meals that normally take a while. You can toss everything in and have dinner ready in no time at all.

Those days when you forget to take something out of the freezer or wait until the last minute for dinner, the instant pot is your saving grace.

I am not exaggerating when I say it truly has changed meal time around here. We love ours and it makes soup recipes even easier.

Try Instant Pot Cajun Chicken Breast!

This recipe uses chicken thighs so it is very frugal. The pasta also stretches the meat and helps you to feed a large family on a budget.

You can substitute chicken breasts or a mix of both if you prefer. The recipe is so versatile and you could even add diced tomatoes!

Another idea is to try smoked sausage instead of chicken. Yum!

We also love Instant Pot Cajun Chicken and Rice.

Try using rice instead of pasta for a nice change. It is so tasty!

Tip for making Instant Pot Cajun Alfredo:

One of our favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop the onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them.

They are such a time saver. I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need.

It’s so nice to be able to just take diced onion out of the freezer for recipes. This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
