Instant pot chicken and wild rice soup recipe

A few months ago, when my friend was sick, I wanted to make her something to help her feel better. I thought about a really yummy soup I had at Panera Bread so I decided to make up a copycat recipe for that soup. I’m just guessing what was in it, but it tasted great to me.

Frozen chicken in the instant pot

I love how instant pot recipes can be made with meat that is frozen solid. I use frozen meat in most of my instant pot recipes and I did in this one as well. Thawed chicken is fine also, but know if you forgot to thaw your meat, the instant pot will have your back.

This recipe made enough chicken and wild rice soup to bring two quarts to my friend for her and her family and have a quart leftover for my husband and I to eat. What’s better than feeding two families with one mess?

Easy pressure cooker recipes

To make this soup, all I had to do was chop up a few vegetables and throw stuff in the pot. Once it was cooked, I had to shred up some chicken and the rest was a piece of cake.

Healthy chicken and wild rice soup

I love cooking in bulk because if I’m going to get the mess out to cook something, I want to be able to eat it more than once. I like freezing half of what I cook or even more than half so I can pull out a surprise meal from the freezer that’s delicious.

This soup freezes great.
