Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment:
a 6- to 8-quart Instant Pot® multi-cooker
  1. Pour the olive oil into the pot of a 6- to 8-quart Instant Pot®. Add the chicken, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir until evenly coated. Add the pasta, garlic, onion, olives, capers, olives and marinara sauce. Fill the empty jar with 2 1/2 cups water, tighten the lid and shake to remove any sauce left in the jar. Pour the water over the pasta mixture and stir until combined.
  2. Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook on high for 4 minutes. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete. Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid and stir the pasta. 
  3. Stir in the spinach. Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to steam the pasta for 1 minute, just until wilted. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete. Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil before serving.
