With the instant pot, the saute function allows us to sear and cook ingredients to bring out it’s full flavor before it’s pressure cooking. Yes, it’s truly a versatile cooking tool. This soup is made in less than 25 minutes and that includes the time to build up pressure in the Instant Pot. Second reason why we love recipes in the Instant Pot is because the flavors are fantastic. The pressure really allows this flavors in this creamy garlic chicken soup with broccoli to produce outstanding flavor. The texture is also amazing and the chicken is tender, juicy and wonderful. The test kitchen devoured this creamy garlic chicken broccoli soup recipe and served it with some crusty bread.
