Alright, guys. Just a small update: we are still living in an Airbnb for the entire month of February so I’m really lacking in food photography props and my favorite plates that I like to use. It’s all good, because the place we are staying at is really nice and has good lighting (which is extremely important to me). We are trying to find a place to live next month so hopefully it’ll work out soon. I’m actually much less stressed out about the whole situation than I thought I would be, and I will provide you with more details soon (fingers crossed!).

In the mean time, I hope you understand if my photos are less than stellar. I’m doing my best with what I have!

As promised, this is my 2nd Instant Pot recipe of the week and it’s a good one. I love a good chicken soup and it’s so healing and comforting when you are feeling sick or down. I first made this Instant Pot chicken soup on a whim and didn’t measure any of the ingredients, and it turned out absolutely fantastic, so I had to make it again to share it with you!

This recipe uses a whole chicken, and I love that because you end up making bone broth while cooking it, so you have a really nutrient-dense soup at the end of it. And it all comes together a little over one hour!

And yes, we have most of our crap in storage right now, but I had to bring my Instant Pot with me, OF COURSE. I use it at least 3-4x a week so it’s a must!

It’s currently cold season so if you are feeling under the weather or in need of some comfort, I hope you make this nourishing Instant Pot chicken soup to boost your immunity and fight off the bugs. It also freezes really well so you can make it ahead of time to pull out on a cold day. It’s basically a hug in a bowl!

      Yes, definitely! You don’t have to adjust the cooking time. Just use 3-4 lbs of drumsticks.

    I just made this. I changed it up a little by adding celery on top of the chicken with some fresh thyme, parsley, and oregano and omitting the green beans and ginger. I added about a tablespoon of soup base too when I added the water too. But this is a great jumping off point for you to tweak to make your favorite chicken soup. The broth was very rich and flavorful. I recommend leaving the carrots in pretty large chunks, like 1 inch long, so they don’t get too mushy. But thanks for this recipe. The chicken was perfect and the broth is a winner!
