Instant Pot Chicken Gnocchi Soup with Mushrooms

Quick easy and creamy soup

This soup is SOUPER easy to make! All bad puns aside, this soup is made start to finish in your Instant Pot.

First, you’ll start by sautéing the veggies and mushrooms in a bit of olive oil and butter in the Instant Pot. Next, you’ll add the garlic and spices, and cook a minute, until just fragrant.

Once the veggies are softened and the spices are toasted/activated, you’ll add the chicken stock, whole chicken breast, and artichoke hearts. Then just take a second to scrape up any brown bits in the bottom of the pan. Close the lid, and set to high pressure for 12 minutes.

Weeknight wonder

After the 12 minutes of cooking are up, you’ll let the soup naturally release for 5 minutes. Once the time is up, release the pressure and open the pot.

At this point, you just need to add the spinach, gnocchi and cream, and let everything cook on sauté. In about 8 minutes, soups on!

Serving suggestions

While this rich and creamy soup is great all on it’s own, it’s also great served with some crusty bread or beer bread on the side. I mean, if we’re going for comfort food, let’s go all the way, right?
