Instant Pot is the appliance that has taken over the world. If you spend any time on Facebook, you have probably heard someone talking about their Instant Pot (IP). Why do people love this multi-cooker so much? It saves time! The Instant Pot is truly magical. You can add fresh or frozen ingredients, and within minutes, your dinner is ready. I will be sharing some of my favorite Instant Pot recipes this summer. If you do not have an Instant Pot yet, there are three different models you should consider. The introductory model is the LUX, and it can handle 6 basic functions: pressure cook, slow cook, steam, make rice, saute, and keeps food warm. The Lux does not have the low setting and cannot make yogurt. The DUO model does everything that the LUX can do, PLUS it can make yogurt. The third model, the smart bluetooth IP can do everything that the DUO model can, PLUS it has bluetooth functions with an additional app that can control it. If you love technology as much as I do, your choice is clear. The bluetooth IP is the best option.
Chicken Soup is something my family loves to eat, especially when my kids are sick. Soup usually takes me close to 3 hours to make, 30 minutes to prepare and at least 2 hours to cook. Not anymore! With this Instant Pot Chicken soup recipe, you can have your soup ready in just over 30 minutes. This recipe is adapted from my Grandmother’s Chicken Soup. She did not cook with a recipe, she just threw in a pinch of this and a little of that, and voila, the soup was amazing. The Instant Pot is so different than the pressure cookers you might have tried years ago. The Instant Pot is a game changer, and I really think that every household will one day have an Instant Pot on their counter. I hope you enjoy this delicious Chicken Soup made in the Instant Pot and ready in minutes.
The great part of the Instant Pot is that you can saute your veggies as seen above, and also cook your chicken at high pressure. Don’t be afraid to try this soup, you will be surprised at how easy it is to put together.
Pictured above is the Pampered Chef Bouquet Garni holder. This silicone herb holder is perfect for giving your soup a wonderful flavor without having pieces of herbs floating on top of your soup. You can buy one of these from a Pampered Chef consultant or you can buy this one that is very similar, or this fun drumstick shaped herb and spice infuser. If you are feeling really silly you can get this rubber chicken herb infuser. Fred Le Crock Croq Chicken Herb Infuser would make a great soup I am sure!

I love chicken soup! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I bought my instant post a year ago and haven’t used it.
So many people are afraid to start using their IP! You need to just take the plunge and try it. You will fall in love very quickly.
Your soup looks great! I am madly in love with my Instant Pot, I used it more and more all winter long and now with summer here it will be indispensable so I don’t have to use the stove.
The IP is really a great way to keep your house cool, with a hot dinner to serve your family. We will also be using it more this summer, along with the grill.
I have consistently seen the instant pot recipes grow over the spring. It seems like such a popular tool and really helps in time management while cooking!
The Instant Pot is really great if you do not have good time management skills. The IP can make a frozen piece of meat ready in minutes!
chicken soul has been my favorite snack in winters, though I haven’t seen any making it with such variety and dedication. It would taste so amazing that even thinking about it can make my taste bud jump.
So glad you can excite your taste buds by just reading about my soup! I hope you will try this simple recipe.
