Season the chicken breasts with salt & pepper. Add the olive oil to the instant pot when the display reads, “HOT.”

Add the hot chicken stock. Add the pasta, minced garlic, garlic powder, salt & the rest of the chicken stock. Place the chicken breasts back into the Instant Pot,
Close the Instant Pot lid & turn the valve to “sealing.” Set the Instant Pot to “pressure cook/manual” for 10 mins on high.
Release the pressure using quick release, by carefully turning the valve to “venting,” then carefully open the lid.
Transfer the cooked chicken breasts to a cutting board. Then, Add the heavy cream, cream cheese & parmesan cheese to the pot.
Cover the Instant Pot & allow the mixture to sit for 2-3 mins, or until the cream cheese has softened. Slice or shred the chicken breasts while the cheese is melting.
