Instant Pot creamy chicken spaghetti casserole with Ritz cracker topping. An easy recipe that is comfort food to the max.


  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 ounces spaghetti
  • 2 heaping cups cooked, chopped chicken
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 1 sleeve Ritz crackers (about 30 crackers), crushed
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter


  1. Pour broth into Instant Pot. Break the pasta in half and add it into the pot in a criss cross pattern. Dump the chicken and cream of chicken soup on top. Don’t stir.
  2. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 3 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 5 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove lid. 
  3. Stir in the sour cream and the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the Ritz crackers on top. Drizzle the Ritz crackers with melted butter. Use an air fry lid to brown up the top of the casserole (air fry for 3 minutes at 400 degrees).
