Instant Pot Chicken & Cheese Tortellini Soup

 chickennnn

Fall is approaching and I ready for some good old soups! Well frankly I already got started on my version of “soul” cooking. Chicken soup seems to always be a win in my house, the kids love it! My kids end up having like two full bowls. It’s a good thing I overcook when it comes to Chicken & Cheese Tortellini soup. We made this recipe in our instant pot. Fantastic product everyone. If you don’t have one, you need one. I have a few instant recipes as well! Check out the Pulled BBQ Pork.

Recently with school starting and a few like fall days we made some Chicken & Cheese Tortellini soup. Can I get a (YUM)!

Well this took me under 20 minutes to cook. By cook I mean set in a pot and do other stuff while it cooks.

You Need 

2 whole skinless/boneless chicken breast

2 cups cut up baby carrots

1 cup celery cut up

1/2 white onion cut up

2 32oz  Chicken broth

Two small bags of frozen cheese Tortellini

Spices of your choice for Chicken or mine-

1 TBSP of paprika

1 TBSP of  minced garlic

1 TSP of salt & Pepper

1 TBSP of Parsley

First get your chicken stock and pour about a cup of it into the instant pot. Then add your chicken breast. Mine were large. Sprinkle your spices ontop of the chicken.

Now close your instant pot lid and make sure your seal is locked and top vent turned to seal. Push Manual(high Pressure), then the count down button till it gets to 15 minutes. Then leave it alone and let is cook.

This is when I chopped my carrots, onions, and celery. Once its down counting down, quick release.

Then get your chicken out and shred it with a fork or however you fancy. Add the chicken back to the pot along with your veggies. Add one container of your chicken broth, if you need a little more add it from the remainder of the other container. I used 1 1/2 of the boxes about. Add a little more parsley or spices if you’d like. I added a little more salt for my liking.

Then close the lid and make sure the seal is closed. Hit manual on high pressure for 3 minutes. Then let it cook and once it’s done quick release it.

Now add to your desired bowl carefully, it’s hot! Enjoy!

  1. Yum! This looks delicious. I love the use of tortellini in this recipe.

  2. I love tortellini, no matter what’s inside, lol I could make this in my crock pot possibly, or just over the stove. I can experiment and add different ingredients as I am not a cooked carrot fan, sorry, lol Thank you for the recipe 🙂

  3. Yum! This looks so delicious! Anything with chicken and pasta is my jam.

  4. This looks so delicious and the chicken looks very tender. I’d love to try it!

  5. This is a really delicious recipe and I love tortellini in soups. I am going to make this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Jennifer Marie says:

  10. This looks so good! I definitely want to give this recipe a try. What a great twist of tortellini by adding Chicken and Cheese. I love this!

  11. Melissa Storms says:

    I need to pick up an instant pot, this soup sounds delicious and the ability to make it so quickly sounds even better.

  12. Your directions don’t say when to add the tortellini. Did you add them with the veggies & pressure cook them for 3 minutes? Or did you add them after pressure cooking & just simmer them until done?

  13. I buy large wholesale club bags of tortellini. What is the weight of the two small bags? Thank you!
