This Instant Pot chicken soup is so simple and hearty with lots of veggies. Make it creamy, but still healthy and low carb with the addition of a little heavy cream.
I am a huge soup lover and this Instant Pot Chicken Soup is perfectly low carb, full of yummy veggies, and made in my favorite kitchen appliance!
I love this soup because it can be made in under 30 minutes...yes, soup in under 30 minutes! Lets go!

The base of this Instant pot creamy chicken soup starts with cooking the chicken. I added all of the chicken to the pot, followed by the onions, broth and all of the seasonings.
I locked the lid and set the timer to 10 minutes. My chicken breast were frozen, but this can be done with fresh chicken breast as well. For fresh chicken, lower the time to 8 minutes.
After a 10 minute natural pressure release, I released the rest of the pressure and removed the lid.
At this point I added all of the veggies. I locked the lid once more and I set the time to zero. This is done by hitting the manual or pressure cook button and then pressing the minus button until it has zero on the screen.
The pot will come back up to pressure and then immediately turn off. I then released the pressure via a quick release. This method gives perfectly cooked vegetables.
Finally, I added the heavy cream, cream cheese, and I tasted for seasoning.
