  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 chicken breast diced into cubes
  • 48 oz chicken broth
  • 1 box Uncle Ben's quick cooking wild rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper


  • On your Instant Pot select the Saute' feature.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, onions, carrots, and celery.
  • Saute for 5 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Add 1/3 cup of chicken broth. Scrap the bottom of the pan to deglaze.
  • Add diced chicken, the seasoning packet from the wild rice, rice, 3 1/2 cups chicken broth, and additional seasoning.
  • Click lid in place then select Manual on the Instant Pot and set time for 6 minutes.
  • The display will switch to "on" while the Instant Pot comes to pressure. This takes several minutes.
  • At the end of the cooking time, NPR (natural press release) after 7 minutes. This means to wait for the display to read 7 minutes before releasing steam.
  • Release steam until pin drops down. I placed a towel on top of the steam release so that soup would not spew out of it.
  • Remove the lid, then use a fork to shred the diced chicken chunks.
  • Set Instant Pot to saute' then add additional chicken stock until soup reaches desired consistency.
  • Allow soup to come to a boil then turn off Instant Pot.
