Pressure Cooker Chicken Spaghetti with Spinach and Tomatoes


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces dried spaghetti, strands snapped into halves
  • 1 cup fresh spinach


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Heat oil in steel pot of a pressure cooker set to Sauté.
  2. Cook and stir onion in hot oil until softened, about 2 minutes; add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Stir chicken with the onion and garlic; cook until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.
  4. Stir water, diced tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, Italian seasoning, red chili flakes, and salt with the chicken; add spaghetti and press into the sauce to submerge.
  5. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing.
  6. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 9 minutes on High pressure.
  7. Once the cooking cycle has completed, set steam vent to Venting to quick-release pressure.
  8. Stir spinach into the pasta and sauce, replace lid, and simmer on Keep Warm until spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

If you don't have any Italian Seasoning in your spice cabinet, combine dried oregano, dried marjoram, dried thyme, dried basil, dried rosemary, and dried sage. Sun-dried tomatoes come in both dry and oil-packed varieties. The oil-packed version in the jar is recommended for this recipe.

This dish is exactly the kind of cooking that I like to do, healthy but delicious. I love that this dish throws in spinach with the rest so your family gets a lot of nutrition. I also added bacon to this because.... it's delicious. Highly recommend!

Delicious chicken spaghetti! I used whole wheat spaghetti noodles and they cooked perfectly in the pressure cooker. I love that everything cooks together, that makes it so convenient. This recipe also perfect for my meal prep.

I added sauce to this and left out the sundries tomatoes. The kids liked it and it’s different than the same old spaghetti and meatballs I usually make for them. Also a good way to sneak in some green without them complaining.

I added a cheese sauce and put it in the oven after cooking in the pressure cooker. Super rich and a classic comfort food recipe like my mom used to make when I was a kid.

This got rave reviews from my husband and teenage son. It was very tasty and I will be making it again for sure. I cooked it exactly as described except that I used dry sun dried tomatoes instead of jarred ones. They turned out fine.

This recipe is a keeper! The flavor were just right and texture of the spaghetti was perfect. But most of all, my husband enjoyed every bite. I do recommend using the sun dried tomatoes.

I followed the directions and somehow my spaghetti came out a little under cooked. Anyone else have that problem?
