Recipe Notes

Instant Pot Chicken and Rice Soup Tips

Can you make Instant Pot chicken rice soup with frozen chicken?
While it is safe to cook frozen meat in an Instant Pot, but we recommend using raw chicken instead of frozen for this soup recipe.
Can you add uncooked rice to chicken soup in an Instant Pot?
Yes, we recommend putting uncooked rice into your Instant Pot for this recipe as cooked rice may become mushy once pressure cooked. If you've got unused cooked wild rice on hand, use it for this chicken wild rice recipe.
Can I use brown rice instead of white in Instant Pot chicken rice soup?
Yes, you can use brown rice instead of white rice in this quick soup recipe. Feel free to play around with other types of rice, too. We recommend using a long grain rice like basmati or jasmine.
