Creamy Chicken Spaghetti

 I had come across this recipe that used an Instant Pot. I don't own one, but I wanted to make the recipe.

First ingredient -  4 cups of chicken broth

So first I forgot to chicken broth (or I thought we had some). So I just used water seasoned with Old Bay seasoning.

So in the pot went the water, 1 pound of broken spaghetti, 3/4 pound of boneless chicken thighs (cut up into pieces, you can use chicken breast), a small onion (1/4 cup) 1 teaspoon of garlic, 1 teaspoon seasoning salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. I cooked this over medium heat until the chicken and pasta looked done.

Then I had to pick out the chicken so it can be shredded. 

Add 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. I stirred this until the cheese is melted.  Add the chicken back. The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of heavy cream, but I ended up using the whole pint because it was really sticky before this and I thought it needed more liquid. 

Turned out tasty

I am not sure how different it would of turned out using an instant pot, you can find the instant pot version here:

Looking over the recipe I realized I forgot the paprika. If I make this again, I will make sure to use chicken stock and to remember to add paprika.
