Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup (Paleo Friendly)

Categories Food
Back when I lived in Atlanta, I used to dream of doing something I like to call Kitchen Sink Sundays. Aka a day where you host friends and find a way to make a fun dish out of whatever groceries you’re all looking to use up for the week. Did I ever do this? No. But the idea for it is what sparks a lot of WSS recipes, particularly today’s Paleo Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup.

As always, I have a few notes about today’s recipe. Aka how to make it work for you! And because one of my favorite things about using the instant pot is that I can make dinner happen regardless of whether or not I remember to thaw out a meat. It makes removing my excuse to not eat something balanced easier. Nevertheless, this instant pot chicken pot pie soup recipe is all about using what you have and making a speedy, hands off dinner. So feel free to sub in as needed!

As always, I’m using my pasture raised chicken from Grass Roots Coop. WSS readers get a discount on their order using the code WHATSAVVYSAID. I’m a long time fan of the GRC crew. They make living a healthy life so much easier by shipping everything to my door. Plus, the taste is phenomenal. I’m so grateful I get to partner with brands I love to create content. And it means even more to me to know I’m supporting small business owners. 

Ps. the blog post today isn’t sponsored but the instagram post is. Feel free to DM me if you want to know the breakdown of sponsorships. I love them so much and I want to be intentional about making sure my fave businesses come out of this season still around. And of course, if I can save my fave friends some $$$ on the journey to their healthiest life, I’m a happy lady!

How To Store & Reheat

Whenever I make soup, I always store it in a quart mason jar in the fridge, It makes it easy to pour out a portion when you want to reheat more soup. Plus, it takes up less space! This recipe will last about a week in the fridge. You can always freeze any you won’t eat in time in a glasslock container.

Both the microwave or stove top would work for reheating purposes. 2-3 minutes in the microwave should do the trick!

  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 cup green beans cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 3 carrots peeled & diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 4 oz mushrooms chopped
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 3 pasture raised chicken breasts frozen or thawed - see notes
  • 1 can simple coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 32 oz chicken broth


  1. Turn your instant pot on saute mode and once it's hot, add in your olive oil & diced onion. Stir and cook for around 2 minutes.

  2. Stir in your minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

  3. Add in your green beans, carrots, celery, mushrooms, salt, pepper, frozen peas, oregano, thyme & parsley. Stir together to make sure your spices are distributed evenly.

  4. Cancel the saute mode on your instant pot and add in your chicken broth. Give everything a stir to make sure nothing is stuck to the bottom of your pan.

  5. Add in your chicken breast making sure they aren't laying on top of one another. And check the notes section to determine your cooking time. On average, I tend to end up cooking this recipe 10 minutes for regular breasts and 12 minutes for frozen.

  6. Place the lid on your instant pot, seal the vent and set the pressure cooker on high for 10 minutes (or your adjusted time if your chicken is larger/smaller/frozen).

  7. Once the timer is done, you can either opt for a quick release or let the pressure naturally release.

  8. Remove the lid and using tongs, pull out your chicken breasts. Place them on a cutting board and shredded the chicken into bite size pieces. It should be incredibly soft by now so you can do this either with a fork & knife or two forks.

  9. Return the shredded chicken to the pot and stir in your can of coconut milk.

  10. Add salt & pepper to taste if needed and ejoy!
