Instant Pot Cheesy Chicken Gnocchi Soup – Gluten Free

Instant Pot Cheesy Chicken Gnocchi Soup is an easy weeknight dinner recipe loaded with gluten free gnocchi and boneless skinless chicken breast.

This Cheesy Chicken Gnocchi Soup recipe takes less than thirty minutes from start to finish and serves six people.

To make this Instant Pot soup, I started by cutting some boneless, skinless chicken breasts into one inch chunks.

Then I set my Instant Pot to Saute Less for seven minutes.

I added a bit of olive oil to the Instant Pot and then dumped the chicken breast chunks in.

I left the chicken breast chunks to cook, stirring occasionally, until the Instant Pot turned off.  

While the chicken was cooking I took out the gluten free gnocchi.  The brand I found on Amazon is pictured below.

The chicken was still slightly pink when the Instant Pot turned off.

Then I added some chicken broth to the Pot and used it to deglaze by scraping all the brown bits off the bottom.

Next I added in the water and then spread the gnocchi evenly in the Pot.  I did not stir.

After the gnocchi I added in some almond milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.  I did not stir.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for three minutes.

When the Instant Pot was done cooking, I immediately turned the steam release handle to the venting position and did a quick release.

I removed the lid from the Pot, dumped in the frozen peas and stirred the contents well.

At this time I decided I wanted a thicker soup so I made a slurry with corn starch and a bit of water and with the Pot on Saute Less I stirred it into the soup until it thickened a bit.  

Whether or not you thicken the soup is purely up to individual taste and you may not find it necessary to complete this step.

Then I added some bacon bits and shredded mozzarella cheese to the Pot and stirred until the cheese had melted.

Then the Cheesy Chicken Gnocchi Soup was ready to serve.
