How Long Do I Cook Creamy Chicken Soup?
Since your chicken is cooked ahead of time this is a quick recipe. Set your Instant Pot or pressure cooker to HIGH pressure for 8 minutes, then do a 5 minute natural release. The pot is set to SAUTE and the heavy cream is added, stirring until it is warmed through.

The soup has that rich, creamy flavor that reminds me of a clam chowder or chicken chowder but it isn’t thick like a chowder. Those all use flour to thicken them up and this is a low carb soup, so flour is out. Instead of finding an alternate thickener like Xantan gum, or arrowroot powder I decided to leave this as more of a broth consistency.
I love it and I make it for lunch and quick dinners using a rotisserie chicken and my homemade chicken broth all through the winter.
