To begin making this Instant Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup with Rice I diced some celery and yellow onion.  Then I chopped up some baby carrots.

When the vegetables were ready I cut up four boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite sized pieces.

I added some olive oil to the Instant Pot and turned it to the Sauté Less function for 8 minutes.

Then I added in the cut up vegetables and bits of chicken.  

I stirred occasionally until the Pot shut off.  The chicken was still quite pink.

Next I added a bit of chicken broth and used it to deglaze the Pot.  This means to scrape any brown bits from the bottom in order to avoid the Burn message when the Pot is coming to Pressure.

After deglazing the Pot I stirred in the remaining broth and some almond milk.

Then I sprinkled in some long grain white rice.  I did not stir.

I followed the rice with some salt and pepper.  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 4 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 5 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

I removed the lid and stirred the contents.

After removing the lid and stirring the contents I dumped in some frozen peas.

At this time I also made a slurry with some corn starch and a bit of water.  I turned the Saute Less function back on for three minutes and stirred in the slurry.

When the Pot shut off I let the soup cool for a few minutes.

Then I filled bowls with this hearty, flavourful soup.

Each bite was loaded with chicken, vegetables and rice to satisfy appetites and fill bellies with warmth!
