This easy Instant Pot Chicken Soup is my go-to recipe anytime someone is under the weather. It’s also my favorite soup to make when I want a big bowl of something hearty and satisfying, especially during the depth of winter. It’s full of flavor and healing ingredients like turmeric, miso and mushrooms.


  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 34 gloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1 tsp dry parsley
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 TBS miso (red or white)
  • 23 chicken breasts, no skin
  • 4oz Shiitake mushrooms (optional)
  • 5 cups veg broth, low sodium
  • 1/21 tsp kosher salt, according to taste
  • Black pepper to taste, about ⅛ tsp


  1. Add all the ingredients to your Instant Pot. Give it a stir. Seal the lid and close the vent.
  2. Cook on the soup setting for 30 minutes.
  3. Allow the soup to do a natural release after the timer has gone off.
  4. Remove the lid once the pressure gauge is all the way down. Shred chicken in the pot with two forks and give the soup a good stir.
  5. Taste the soup and adjust salt & pepper to taste. Serve.
