Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup ingredients

Butter - Salted or unsalted butter is fine to use.

All-purpose flour - This is to help thicken up the texture of the soup. 

Milk - Any type of milk is fine to add. Milk with fat added can help with the creaminess. 

Minced garlic - If you don't have minced garlic, garlic powder will work as well. 

Celery - Clean and dice the celery into small pieces. 

Onion - Choose your favorite type of onion and add. 

Potato - Red or white potatoes will work just fine. 

Salt and pepper - To taste. 

Carrots - Clean, peel, and chop carrots or dice up baby carrots. 

Chicken broth - Helps add flavor to the dish. Bone broth or stock could be used as well. 

Dried thyme & Rosemary - Adds a delicious flavoring paired with the rest of the herbs. If you don't have these herbs, a little bit of Italian seasoning could be an option. 

Bay leaves - Remove before serving as they're not meant to be eaten. 

Peas - Frozen peas work best for this recipe as canned peas are mushy. 

Corn - Frozen or canned corn can be used.
