Can this be cooked in a pressure cooker

Kayti Lavergne

Sunday 15th of January 2017

Hello Amanda! I don't actually own a pressure cooker, but my Mom does! We are going to remake this recipe next week in the Instant Pot to test it out! We will let you know how it goes! :) I do think it would be very easy to cook in a pressure cooker.

If you are using already cooked chicken (leftovers from a previous meal), would you still suggest cooking in the crockpot for6hours? Or would it be easier to cook on the stovetop at that point? It looks delicious!

Hi Kate, Here is the stovetop directions we came up with for you. Put all the liquids and softened cream cheese in a microwavable bowl and warm it a minute or two until you can whisk the liquids into a sauce. Add this to the skillet with all the other ingredients and simmer about 20 minutes covered. Keep an eye on it so the sauce does not overheat, stir occasionally. Let us know if you have any more questions. We'd love to know how this version of the recipe works out for you. It's a very good recipe. Best of luck. Kayti and Diane

Do you cook this on high all day?

Kayti Lavergne

Monday 10th of October 2016

Hi Janey! You can be a little flexible with this recipe depending on how hot your crockpot gets. For me, the chicken was just fine being on high all day. if you don't want to leave it on high all day, then I would recommend cutting the chicken up first before putting it in the crockpot and only cooking it on high for 4 hours, or low for 6-8 hours. Hope that helps! Thank you for your question!
