Instant Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

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.

This soup includes onion, celery, carrots, chicken broth, parsley, and chicken. The wild rice for this recipe comes from a package of Uncle Ben’s long grain and wild rice. You use the seasoning packet too.

The creamy part of this soup comes from some cream cheese, milk, and half and half. A little cornstarch and water are in there too to help thicken the soup. I also have a lighter version of this soup available if you are looking to cut some calories. A few ingredient swaps can really help you save some calories.
