Tips for Instant Pot Soups
Don’t fill past the Instant Pot Fill Line on the inside of the inner pot. If you fill the pot too full, when you release pressure you will get hot liquid spraying out the vent and that is 100% no bueno.
Season each layer. This is important. You don’t need to go crazy with the salt and pepper but you should be seasoning each layer as you add to the instant pot.
Deglaze the Pot. After you cook your onions and garlic and spices you will have some delicious flavor that has browned to the bottom of the Instant Pot inner pot. Don’t waste this! Add about 1/4 cup of liquid you are using in your recipe to the pan and scrape all those flavor bits up from the bottom with a flat wooden spoon. Don’t skip this step.
How to Make Chicken Parm Soup
I sauted my onions in olive oil for about 5 minutes or so? Just enough so they were translucent and the edges getting golden brown. I added my garlic and spices and stirred for another minute or so.
All the rest of the ingredients go into the pot! I love when it’s a quick dump of ingredients! Give it a stir to loosen the pasta up.
Place the lid, turn vent to sealing and cook on manual for 7 minutes. Quick release the valve after cooking is complete CAREFULLY. I use that handle of the wooden spoon!
Give it another good stir and ladle into your favorite soup bowls.
I love to top it with some shredded Parmesan cheese and a bit more parsley.
Enjoy! Serve with some crunchy bread stick crackers, crusty bread, garlic toast or your favorite fluffy bread stick!
