Can you refrigerate Instant Pot chicken and noodles?
You can refrigerate the meal. In the fridge, it will still be good for a few days. However, it won’t taste as good when it cools down. The sauce tends to get thicker as it gets cooler, so eat your noodles quick! We recommend setting the table right before the meal is done cooking.
