Pesto Chicken

Yesterday I bought the Power Pressure Cooker XL it is electric. I never wanted a stove top pressure cooker they always scared me.

The cost varies on this but starts around $90.00 – $130.00. Kohls had it on sale for $89.99 and I had 15% off scratch off so it ended up being $76.49

My first thing to try out was the Pesto Chicken.

Pesto Chicken

8 –  skinless boneless chicken tenderloins

1 – can of diced tomatoes

1- cup of chicken broth cup of water

1-  cup of water

1 – can of tomato paste

1/2 – package of frozen sliced bell peppers

1 – heaping tablespoon of Italian seasoning

1 – teaspoon of garlic powder

Salt and Pepper

3 – cloves of fresh Garlic

1 – package of fettuccini noodles

Make sure you stir it up good.

I set it on the Stew cycle once it builds pressure which takes 10- 15 minutes then the countdown of 10 – minutes cooking time begins. Once it is done cooking it goes onto the warm cycle so if your busy outside doing something it keeps your food warm.

The smell is amazing and it tastes really good.

I think I might get pretty spoiled to this whole pressure cooking thing.

  1. Wow! I’ve never used anything like that. My mom had a stove top pressure cooker, she used it for canning I think. Maybe other stuff, but I don’t really remember other than steam coming out of something on the top and her telling us to stay away from it.


    1. They are still used a lot for canning. The new ones are much safer and have lots of buttons. I cooked fresh purple hull peas in 15 minutes. I cooked a peach cobbler with fresh peaches and it was good and took 15 minutes. I think I could get spooled to this. I want to try a roast, potatoes, and carrots this week.


  2. I’ve never thought of using a pressure cooker.. my sister-n-law uses hers alot especially for collard greens… and they’re so tender..but you’ve got me thinking now.. Thanks for sharing the recipe..- looks yummy


  3. I would have never used the old ones I know too many people who had them explode and the food end up on the ceiling lol. The electric ones are much safer. So far I have made 3 things in it.
