Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup Panera copycat (Pressure cooker)





This Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is like you ordered delivery from Panera, but for a fraction of the cost. Tender chicken, melt in your mouth veggies, and a creamy broth that isn't too heavy. This one-step soup is so easy and fast to prepare in your Instant Pot pressure cooker!

I've tried a few different copycat recipes for Panera's Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice and they were either missing a key ingredient (don't worry, it's in here!) or they were too rich with too much heavy cream or cream cheese. It's one of my favorite soups ever and when I used to be a baker for Panera, this was my favorite thing to have for lunch! I always seem to go in when they aren't serving this so I decided it was time to try and make my own!








Yield: 9 cups

  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 pound cubed boneless skinless chicken thighs (16oz) 
  • 1 box Near East Long Grain and Wild Rice, don't use seasoning packet (25-30 min cook time, 6oz)
  • 4 TB butter
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 cups cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp tarragon
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp sugar
To Finish
  • 1 can evaporated milk (12oz)
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • salt and pepper to taste

instructions

Pressure Cook
  1. Add all ingredients except the last  four to your pressure cooker. Stir and cook on manual for 15 minutes. 
  2. When the timer beeps, do a quick release, but let a little steam out at a time. The pot is pretty full and some can come out of the steam release. 
To Finish
  1. Whisk the cornstarch with some of the evaporated milk to make a slurry and then stir into the soup. Add the remaining evaporated milk and half and half. Season to taste.

notes

When purchasing the wild rice mix, make sure the cook time is 25-30 minutes. Anything less will come out overcooked. If you can't find wild rice blend, 6 oz of brown rice can be substituted and increase cook time to 17 minutes.
