Nonna made a delicious, super easy recipe for Chicken Pot Pie using the Instant Pot. As always, Nonna’s recipe is easily modified. You can use turkey, beef, pork, or
another meat as you see fit. Just season and cook with the vegetables in the instant pot.
In fact, change up the vegetables and seasonings as you see fit. The key to this recipe is
to thicken the broth using a white sauce, everything else is interchangeable!
