Instant Pot Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic Chicken Pasta

Have you noticed that Costco these days is selling Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic Sauce? I am a huge fan of their sauce because it adds so much flavor and elevates almost every dish! I used it the other day to make Crockpot Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic Chicken Pasta and my family was raving about it! So I decided to create an Instant Pot version that is quick, easy, still has the same amount of creaminess, and is packed with flavor.

  • They will love the flavor! 
  • They will love how creamy it is (thanks to the creamy cheese)
  • They will love that they aren’t waiting hours for dinner!
  • And you will love that it is a super budget friendly low prep meal! 

We have adapted this recipe from our reader’s favorite, Instant Pot Olive Garden Chicken Pasta which is a must try as well!

  • Lay chicken breasts over top of your sauce. 

  • Add the remaining sauce over the top of your chicken breasts.

  • Sprinkle ¼ cup of parmesan cheese

  • Lay your cream cheese block on top.

  • Close your lid, set to sealing. 
  • PC on HIGH for 15 minutes + do a NR (natural release) for 15 minutes.
  • Remove your lid.  Remove your chicken from the pot and place it in a bowl so that it can be shredded.  You can also do it straight in your pot if you are very careful.  I like to use my handheld mixer or you can use two forks to shred.  

  • Turn your pot on to saute (LOW).  Add the shredded chicken back in. 
  • Add in the milk & remaining parmesan cheese.  Allow it to thicken a bit. 

  • Add in your cooked pasta and stir to coat the pasta completely.

  • Serve immediately & ENJOY!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • While we love this dish with pasta, you can easily serve it without. Oftentimes I will eat the chicken with a side salad for a healthier option. 
  • If you have a bigger Instant Pot you can double this recipe. You just want to ensure you never fill it past the max fill line.

Storage

These leftovers store and reheat so well! Store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. 

Can you freeze this parmesan garlic chicken?

This is one of those dishes that freeze so well! You will want to cook the chicken according to the directions all the way up to adding the pasta. When you get to that step, you will want to remove as much chicken as you would like to freeze and set aside. Let this cool completely.

Once cooled, place it in a freezer-safe bag and store it in the freezer for up to 2 months.

When you are ready to enjoy, thaw in the fridge overnight, warm up and add your cooked pasta. 

You don’t want to freeze cooked pasta because the texture changes in the freezing process.

Reheating

To reheat your garlic parmesan chicken pasta you will want to do so in the microwave or warm it up over the store.

So I have question. This has quickly become a family favorite but it seems every time I make it I get the food burn warning, have to scrape the bottom and then start over. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can avoid this?

Do you have the settings and time to cook this in a regular crockpot or does it have to be insta pot!?

Delicious and easy! I had a slight issue with the dreaded burn warning on my instant pot, but stirred it around a bit and everything else went well. In a house of 6 with teenagers, I rarely find a meal that everyone likes. Everyone went back for seconds tonight!
