    Hi Neena,
    I just got an Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus and I’m really excited to try so many of your recipes. But first, I just want to take a moment to compliment you on your demonstration videos; they really are outstanding! I create CBT videos professionally (so I speak from experience). Your presentation style, camera work, lighting, and crystal clear, concise delivery may be the new gold standard for my work. Thank you for sharing your craft. Keep up the great work!
    V/R, Keith

      Wow, what a wonderful compliment – thank you, Keith! I’m definitely an amateur in video creation, so your words mean a lot to me. I keep learning new things everyday – all self-taught! I hope you enjoy your new Instant Pot and do let me know how things go!

    SO good! Question: can we leave out the fish sauce? I have 2 kids that are allergic to fish 🙁

      Melanie, I think you can try and substitute [eafl id="10636" name="soy sauce - Japanese soy sauce" text="soy sauce"]. There’s also a vegetarian fish sauce called [eafl id="11024" name="Fysh - vegetarian fish sauce" text="Fysh sauce"] that some of my readers have recommended, but I have not tried it.

    This was amazing! My kids wanted more noodles after so I just put the peanut sauce, chicken broth and spaghetti (following your spaghetti instructions) and it cooked perfectly! I’ve only had my instant pot 2 days!

      Happy kids = happy mom, right? Laurie, I’m so glad your family liked the recipe and thank you so much for sharing.

    Great recipe! The sauce was so well balanced and delicious. I used a pound of chicken instead of 1/2 pound. It did not seem like too much, and I think you need this much chicken for a family of four. Next time I will increase the veggies too. I love these recipes where you cook the pasta and everything in the same pot.

      Thank you, Mary, for sharing your modifications. I’m thrilled that you like the recipe.

    Can I put the sauce on top of the noodles to be sure I won’t get the burn notice?

    • Paint the Kitchen Red

      Linda, I would be more concerned about the noodles giving you a burn error rather than the sauce. So I would recommend that the noodles go on top. Good luck!

    Just having this for lunch and it has great flavor. However, I found it to be heavy on the spaghetti noodles. I followed the recipe exactly but it didn’t look like your photos. Mostly sauce and noodles…and the sauce was a little pasty…maybe it was the type of peanut butter I used. Next time I’d use half the pasta and at least double the veggies, maybe adding some green beans, and maybe a little more chicken.

      Kat, thanks for you comment. You can definitely make those changes to suit your tastes. Adding more veggies shouldn’t change anything else in the recipe.

    I love this recipe! It is absolutely one of my favorite instant pot recipes. I use oyster sauce instead of fish sauce. Still a lot of flavor. There are never any leftovers when I make this!

      Lynne, thank you for sharing. I love this recipe too, because it’s so easy to make.
