Let the Pot do the hard work for you!


    Absolutely delish and the perfect meal for quick nights or for someone a bit under the weather. Not too creamy - just right and easily adapted to your lifestyle.

    Hold the phone! This chicken soup is the antidote to a number of pressing problems. But Kym, what kind of pressing issues could possibly result in needing some magical soup?? Oh dear friend, let me count the ways:

    1. You or someone close by is under the weather

      Kid Approved
      Lil one under the weather? This is kid-approved!
    2. Its a wee bit chilly outside
    3. You soul needs a bit of warming
    4. You are SOUP OBSESSED like your favorite blogger (that’s me…right??)  =P
    5.  My fave – you need an EASY IP recipe for easy nights where the last thing you need to worry about is WHAT TO COOK!

    I got you. But Kym – what about options for different lifestyles? Got you there for the most part. As follows –

    1. Easiest Way to Go Possible
      • Buy a rotisserie chicken and pull that bad boy apart (no need to cook the chicken first).
      • Use Instant Rice (Boil-n-Bag)
      • Buy bags of diced mirepoix (diced carrots, onion, and celery) or dice yo’self
      • you haven’t been making your own broth??? What the heck? Just kidding – buy that ish! Look for low sodium.
    2. Whole30 | Paleo
      • Cauliflower Rice instead of rice (follow this recipe). Love love love this recipe and you can make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge.
      • If using a rotisserie chicken, check ingredients. MOST have non-compliant sugars and soys (BS!)
      • Follow my IP recipe for making your own “faux”-tisserie chicken. Hell, do it the night before. The IP does all the work while you are doing whatever else you need to do.
      • USE Coconut or Almond Milk in lieu of Cream of Chicken Low Sodium Soup (1:1 ratio)
      • ADD 2T of Tapioca Flour (Starch) to thicken broth during last 30 minutes of cooking. Is it absolutely necessary? Absolutely NO!
    3.  No cream-y content – DELETE this component all together and add more broth. No biggie at all. Some folks want more of a broth-y soup and some like a creamier base. Up to your tastebuds and those of your “customers”.

    No Time for the Slow Cooker function on your IP – NO PROBLEMO YO!

    Simply follow all the steps and instead of turning the saute mode off, keep it on (Saute High). Cover and continue to cook (stirring occasionally) until soup comes to a low boil. Cook for 10 more minutes. Reduce Saute High to Saute Low and serve when you are ready. NOTE: I do not recommend the pressure cooker method because your meat and rice are already cooked. Your rice and veggies will basically disintegrate into a mushy mess and nobody wants that mess. =)

    DO NOT FORGET THE LEMON PLEASE – Add lemon to every soup recipe to add brightness and a healthy

    component. The combination of turmeric and lemon in this soup provide a power-packed punch of anti-inflammatory, immune system recovery benefits.

    I dont want to over complicate this recipe – i just want to give you options. If you have questions, please ask. I would rather we work together to make this easy recipe come together to make your life easier or your little one feel better while they have an evil cold or something, that is WHAT I AM HERE FOR.

    To win my son’s heart, I served this last night with grilled cheese sliders. Woohoo!

    As always, I want to hear from you guys. Do you make a version of this? Additions? Subs?

    If you make this, I want to know how it came out. Hit me up here in the comments.

    until we eat again…



    If you are cooking your own chicken and/or making your own broth, see notes above or go forth and do as you wish.


    Mise en place - get all of your ingredients and cooking devices together. Chop vegetables. Rip apart that chicken if you did not do this step before hand.


    At the same time, boil water in a medium sauce pan. Place bags of rice in water and follow box instructions.


    Turn on IP but hitting the saute function. When it beeps, add 1T of olive oil. Warm for 1 minute and then add veggies. Stir to coat. Saute for 10 min, stirring occasionally. Turn off. Pour in shredded / cubed chicken and rice.


    Add all other ingredients, stir well. Here's my trick to have it ready sooner. Hit Saute on high. It will take about 10 mins for the soup to heat up. Turn off and push the slow cooker function for "high - 6 hours". Cover and go about your business.


    Top with sprigs of parsley just to show off! Serve with little grilled cheese sliders (cut grill cheese into 4 equal squares - BAM - you just got KID FANCY).

    Enjoy, you kitchen rebel!
