Don't have a pressure cooker? Cook chicken in a pan with one cup of water. Cook and drain pasta before mixing all ingredients together.
If you end up with more liquid than shown in my video, spoon some out before baking. Then let rest for 5-10 extra minutes after baking or add more baking time if needed.
