  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


A creamy sauce envelopes chicken tenderloins, noodles and mushrooms and then the dish is topped with shredded cheese and panko breadcrumbs. 


  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Better than Bouillon Chicken Base
  • 12 ounces frozen or dry egg noodles
  • 1 to 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins (fresh not frozen)
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, poultry seasoning
  • 4 ounces chopped mushrooms
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can cream of chicken soup
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs


  1. Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. When display says hot add in the butter and let it melt. Add in the onions and saute for 5 minutes. 
  2. Pour in the water and scrape bottom of pot so that nothing is sticking. Stir in the Better than Bouillon. 
  3. Add in the noodles. If using frozen noodles you’ll want to thaw them enough that you can break them apart from each other. 
  4. Add the chicken on top of the noodles so that the noodles are covered. Sprinkle a little salt, pepper, garlic powder and poultry seasoning on top of the chicken. 
  5. Dump the mushrooms, cream of chicken and cream cheese on top of the chicken. 
  6. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 5 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 5-10 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid. 
  7. Stir well. If you have an air fryer lid then sprinkle the cheese and panko on top and place the air fryer lid on top. Bake for 3 minutes at 400° F until cheese is melted. If you don’t have an air fryer lid pour the chicken and noodles into a 9×13 inch pan. Sprinkle the cheese and panko on top. Broil in the oven for 3 minutes until cheese is melted. 
  8. Serve and enjoy!
