Recipe for Tofu and Chicken Pad Thai in the Instant Pot

8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast cut in cubes
1½ cups chicken broth
3 medium scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced (1 cup) (optional)
¼ cup roasted unsalted peanuts
3 tablespoons fish sauce (gluten-free, if necessary)
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
Up to 6 medium garlic cloves, minced (2 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon regular or low-sodium soy sauce, or gluten-free tamari sauce
8 ounces raw dried wide flat rice noodles (sometimes called “rice stick noodles” or “pad Thai noodles”), broken as necessary to fit in the pot
8 ounces firm tofu, diced (optional)
1 yellow bell pepper, stemmed, cored, and cut into ¼-inch strips
Lime wedges, for garnishing

Stir the chicken, broth, scallions (optional), peanuts, fish sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, garlic, and soy sauce in a 5-, 6-, or 8-quart Instant Pot until the brown sugar dissolves.

Lay the broken rice noodles on top of this sauce mixture and press down gently, just until some are submerged with none getting close to the pot’s bottom. Gently pile the pepper strips and tofu pieces (optional) on top of the noodles, then lock the lid on the pot.

Set level to: HIGH
Valve must be: Closed
Set time for: 4 minutes with the KEEP WARM setting off

When the pot has finished cooking, use the quick-release method to bring the pressure back to normal. Unlatch the lid and open the cooker. Stir gently until well combined. Serve warm with lime wedges to squeeze over each serving.

Optional: Garnish the servings with Sriracha, chopped fresh mint leaves, chopped fresh cilantro leaves, and/or more peanuts
