  • 3 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 3 cups chicken stock

  • 2 cups Peas and carrots, frozen, unprepared

  • 2 (8 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup milk

  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch

  • ½ cup heavy cream


  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add onion and butter and cook until transparent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Add chicken stock, frozen vegetables, chicken, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 12 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  3. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  4. Combine milk and cornstarch in a small bowl; pour into the soup and stir until incorporated. Turn Instant Pot® to warm and cook until soup has thickened, about 5 minutes.

  5. Remove chicken and shred with 2 forks. Return meat to the pot, turn off the heat, and mix in heavy cream.
