Instant Pot Chicken & White Bean Soup

Hi, guys!

I whipped up this (experimental) recipe over the weekend and shared it on Instagram Stories. It turned out so well, and I received approximately 1 million inquires about it, so I decided to turn it into an official recipe on CNC. It was SO EASY to make, so it’ll definitely be a recipe that we’ll make again!

And, hey, how great is the instant pot? It’s so easy to just dump in all of your ingredients and cook up a super flavorful meal within minutes – and that’s exactly what this Instant Pot Chicken & White Bean Soup is all about. It’s a hearty protein-packed soup, and I had almost all of the ingredients on-hand for it. Most are pantry staples, so having these ingredients in your kitchen for a last-minute, super simple weeknight dinner is the way to go! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
