Instant Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup {grain free, gluten free, dairy free}

instant pot chicken vegetable soup

Hello chicken soup!

We love our new Instant Pot, so to kick off our new relationship I made this delicious chicken veggie soup. What I love about chicken veggie soup is that it’s TOTALLY versatile. You can add whatever you want, change the flavor, whatever feels good.

Chicken soup also contains MANY positive nutrients. For example, chicken broth contains collagen – good for your skin, a source of protein, and soothing for your immune system. PLUS all the veggies in there as well- loaded with nutrients, fiber, protein.

If you want to be REALLY creative, add some noodles, and avocado – for a more hearty meal.  Any extra herbs and spices you want to add, also great!
