Traditionally, chicken and gnocchi soup has heavy cream, but I choose not to use dairy to make it a little lighter. Cooking the soup in the Instant Pot® cuts down on the time.

  • Close and lock the lid with the vent closed. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 9 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Release remaining pressure naturally.

  • Unlock and remove the lid. Select Saute function. Add gnocchi and spinach and cook until gnocchi float to the top, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and coarsely chop; return to the soup. Taste soup and adjust salt if necessary.
