Check out our recipe for making chicken marsala pasta in the Ninja Foodi!
Every time we go out to a restaurant, my husband orders Chicken Marsala with a side of pasta. I’ve made chicken marsala at home but wanted a way to make the pasta at the same time. I was so happy with the results of this recipe!! Making the pasta at the same time resulted in a creamy, delicious pasta dish that was made all in one pot! It was delicious! And most importantly, my husband approved….and ate two bowls! That’s a win in my book!!
Tips for making Ninja Foodi Chicken Marsala Pasta
Absolutely! To double the recipe, double all ingredients except the amount of chicken broth that you are putting in. Instead of doubling it, double it and subtract half a cup. So, instead of using 6 cups (3 cups doubled) add 5 ½ cups instead. Do not adjust the cooking time.
I would recommend using boneless skinless chicken breasts. Since we are cooking the pasta at the same time as the chicken, it is important that the chicken is cut into smaller pieces so that it cooks in the same amount of time as the pasta. For this recipe, the chicken should be cut into pieces that are no thicker than ½ inch and about 3 inches in length.
Yes, you can. When choosing what type of pasta to use, make sure that it will cook in the same amount of time as the chicken. I have found that 3 minutes is the right cooking time for chicken that is cut into small pieces. The rule of thumb for pressure cooking pasta is this: look on the back of the box. Take the recommended cook time and divide it in half and then subtract 2 minutes. The pasta that I used for this recipe had a recommended cooking time of 9-11 minutes. I cut that in half and came up with 5 minutes and then subtracted 2. The cook time for the linguine that I used is 3 minutes. If you would like to substitute another pasta for the linguine, choose a pasta that has a recommended cooking time between 9 and 11 minutes.
Don’t panic!! The pasta will continue to cook as you stir it and thicken the sauce. If the pasta is way undercooked for your liking, simply put the pressure cooker lid back on (do not turn it on) and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Open the lid and stir. The steam within the pot should continue to cook the pasta.
Yes, you can. Depending on what type of vegetables you will be adding will determine when to add them. If you are adding vegetables that cook very quickly like broccoli, mushrooms, or peas, you can add them at the end when you are adding in the cream and parmesan cheese. They should cook to an al dente texture and be ready to eat at the same time that the sauce has thickened up. If you are adding vegetables that take longer to cook like green beans, peppers or carrots, you should add those in before you add in the pasta. You will want to pressure cook these vegetables since they do take longer to cook.
