Instant Pot® Chicken and Quinoa Soup This hearty and tasty soup is true comfort food. You can adjust the amount of spice to your liking. Using a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and frozen chicken, it’s a relatively fast meal, too!
Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®), select Saute function, and add butter. Add onion and garlic to melted butter, stirring until onion begins to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add carrots, mushrooms, rice from package, and quinoa. Place frozen chicken on top and add chicken broth, seasoned salt, pepper flakes, parsley, and chili powder. Cancel Saute function.Advertisement
