Olive Oil Yellow Onion Carrots Celery   Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs Garlic Cloves Salt Chicken Broth Bay Leaves Thyme Rosemary Half And Half Or Canned Coconut Milk Flour Or Other Thickener

Heat olive oil in the Instant Pot by turning on the sauté function. Add the diced onion, carrots and celery and cook until the onion is translucent.


Next, add the chicken thighs to the pot along with minced garlic. Pour in the chicken broth. Top with bay leaves, rosemary and thyme.


Close the lid on the Instant Pot, set the vent to seal and pressure cook on high for 20 minutes. Carefully release the remaining pressure. Remove the chicken thighs and shred the chicken with two forks.


Add the chicken back to the pot along with the half and half, cooked rice and arrowroot powder.  Set the Instant Pot to sauté and bring to a simmer.  Once the soup starts simmering, hit cancel.



Some chicken broths can have high sodium levels so it's best to wait until after cooking to check the saltiness of the soup. If the soup isn't salty enough, then season before serving.
