Instant Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

by Laura

Today, I have an Instant Pot chicken and wild rice soup. I love a good creamy chicken and wild rice soup. I have a couple of stove top versions and a slow cooker version. They are all delicious but take some time to make.

The great thing about the instant pot version is it only takes 5 minutes to cook! Another thing I love, is the chicken is added to the soup raw. All of my other recipes, you add in the chicken when it’s cooked.
