A few things about this Instant Pot Asian Noodle Bowl recipe. It truly is a “dump and set” dinner.
How to Make Instant Pot Asian Noodle Bowls
The only prep involved in this recipe is slicing two carrots and cutting your chicken into bite-sized pieces. But guess what? You can ask the butcher at the grocery store to do that! Most will happily help you with that step and boom! you cut your dinner prep time down.
The sauce is an Asian-inspired mix of Tamari soy sauce, (links to products are affiliate links), rice vinegar, chicken broth, almond butter, and sweetened with a little erythritol instead of added sugar. You can use regular sugar or brown sugar if you prefer.
When everything is cooked together in the Instant Pot, the starch from the noodles thicken the sauce naturally. The starch also creates a sticky noodle, which I LOVE.
By the way, that pretty red Instant Pot up there is my new second Instant Pot! You’d be surprised how handy having a second one is. I love it!!
