So Many Instant Pots To Choose From! Help!

I know there are so many different versions and sizes of the Instant Pot now that it can make it hard to choose “the right one”.

Well, I’d have to say that you will not go wrong with any of them! But, I have the Instant Pot LUX 6 Quart 6-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker. It’s basically 6 appliances in 1 – pressure cooker, rice cooker, saute, steamer, cake maker, and warmer. It is awesome!

How to make Instant Pot Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup:

To begin this Instant Pot Chicken and Rice Soup Recipe, get out your Instant Pot, and plug it in!

After the Instant Pot lid is in it’s proper position, turn the valve to the SEALING position and then press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 18 minutes.

When the cooking time is over, let the Instant Pot naturally release some pressure for 10 more minutes (this allows for the necessary additional cooking time as the pressure gradually reduces).

After the additional 10 minutes, turn the valve to the VENTING position to release the remaining pressure from the inner pot.

Remove the lid once all of the pressure has escaped.

In a small mixing bowl, combine together the half and half and cornstarch.

When the half and half mixture is completely combined, add it into the Instant Pot along with the peas and stir everything together.

    Hey I veganized this recipe. I used veggie chikn broth, soy protien like soy curls and a soy cream instead of the 1/2 and 1/2. It was so delicious. I often use your 1\2 1\2 that the recipe called for. I use a lot of your instant pot recipes and just veganize them for my family. Thanks for the awesome recipe it was so delicious.

  2. Tracey G says:

    I'm not sure what went wrong but my recipe came out very starchy, thick and over cooked. I definitely didn't need the starch w the cream but I had already mixed it together bf I opened the pot and saw how thick it was. I like all the ingredients and your picture looked delicious. Mine looked like mush. I get frustrated with my instant pot bc it seems to over cook most recipes. I'm trying to figure it out. Maybe different models take less time. Any advice? Thanks

    We are so sorry you had a problem with this recipe. We have heard that some Instant Pots can run hot. If you are having problems with recipes burning, you may want to reduce your cooking time and see if that helps.
