  • 3 cups diced peeled potatoes

  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lb organic chicken breast


  • Add ingredients (except chicken) to the Instant Pot.  Stir to combine.

  • Open lid and remove chicken breasts.  Chop or shred.
  • Ladle out 2 cups of veggies and broth into a spearate bowl.  Using an immersion hand blender, puree the mixture until thick and smooth. (a blender also works fine for this step)

Stovetop Instructions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat.  Add carrots, celery, and onion.  Cook and stir for 3-4 minutes.  Add broth and herbs and bring to a simmer.  Add chicken and potatoes to the pot and simmer for 15 minutes, until chicken is cooker through.  Remove chicken from the pot and cut into large chunks.  Remove 2 cups of veggies and broth and puree with an immersion blender.  Add the thickened mixture back to the soup along with the chicken.  Stir well and season with salt and pepper.
