30-Minute Instant Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
If you are looking for an easy, healthy, hearty soup, this 30-Minute Instant Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is it. This chicken and wild rice soup is full of vitamin-rich veggies, chunks of chicken, nutty wild rice, and (with the help of your handy Instant Pot) is ready in under 30 minutes. With this indecisive spring weather, this creamy thick chicken and wild rice soup will be great on any night of the week.
It’s been a rough month for us. Sickness, traveling, more sickness. Quick, easy, tasty meals are a must especial on days (weeks, or months) like this. This soup is one of our go-to recipes because it’s full of vitamins, filling, and our girls gobble it up.
This soup is one of our go-to recipes because it’s full of vitamins, filling, and our girls gobble it up. That’s not just a win, win but a win, Win, WIN! They love the creaminess. I love the nutty wild rice flavor combine with all the delicious veggies and chunks of chicken not to mention how quick it is to make (at least for a wild rice soup).
I took video the last time I made this soup to give you guys a little visual teaser. Long story short, my husband (who edits my videos for me) “accidently” deleted them. :'( Sad day! I know. So, sorry for the lack of step-by-step photos or video on this one.
Thank goodness this recipe is pretty simple to follow.
The first thing I do is get the Instant Pot warming. I add the chicken broth and wild rice. This recipe uses legit wild rice, not “instant.” Because of this, the rice takes much longer to cook but has such a great texture. On high pressure, I cook the wild rice for 15 minutes then immediately release the pressure.
I add the veggies, raw chicken chunks, spices and cook for another 5 minutes. Once complete, I immediately release the pressure. I set the Instant Pot cooker to saute and add the cream (milk or half and half). Once it is steaming again, I add the cornstarch slurry to thicken the soup. That leaves the last ingredient to add, parsley. Voila! Soup is on.
Voila! Soup is on. I love to enjoy this soup with a large dollop of sour cream. Yes, it takes it down a few notches on the health-o-meter but it’s soooo delicious!
