Instant Pot Chicken Tortellini Soup

Soup. Soup. Soup. As soon as cooler weather hits soup is all I can think about. And let me tell you, Pinterest does not help. I’d seen The Recipe Critics Slow Cooker Chicken Tortellini Soup recipe floating around more than once and I knew I had to make it.. Problem is, I tossed my slow cooker a few months ago when I realized I hadn’t used it since I got my Instant Pot. Plus, who wants to wait 6 hours for a soup that looks that good?14141956_10209237345204926_2423909171566421622_nSo I decided to try it out in my Instant Pot. I had no intentions of blogging it, but took some pictures along the way to show all my Facebook friends. Then I had my first bite and KNEW I had to share it, even though my pictures are ehhhh…

For this recipe it is very important that you follow the directions. If you put the tortellini into the Instant Pot with all the other ingredients and cook them together, you will have mush soup.

Toss everything into the Instant Pot, but the tortellinis. Put a big old pot of water on to boil for them.14281529_10209242808741511_438053552_nSet the Instant Pot for 8 minutes high pressure (so much better than hours, right?!). Cook tortellinis according to directions. Once the Instant Pot is done, quick release. Then remove the chicken and shred. I used a whisk because the chicken was falling apart.14256763_10209242808581507_296484578_nAdd the tortellinis and serve immediately!

  1. Made this tonight and it was AMAZING!
    Hubby put some parmersean cheese over his, it made the soup thicker.

  2. My Mother in law was going back to work today for the first time after having the flu so I thought I’d make her soup so she could relax after work. She loves cheese tortellini so when I ran across this I had to try it instead of traditional chicken noodle soup. This soup is fast, inexpensive, simple and DELICIOUS!!!!! It will be a staple in my 3 football players family of five’s dinners this fall. LOVE IT!!!

  3. How many oz of cheese tortellini I see 7 oz bags, 9 oz, 19 oz and 20 oz lol Thanks!

  4. Love this recipe. My chicken was done, but not shreddable after 8 minutes. I pulled it out, chopped it up, and put it back in. No problem.

    Ok, I loved this recipe but made some modifications for my mood. I added a chopped mushrooms, a block of cream cheese to the instant pot. I used frozen chicken breasts, sliced carrots. After it all cooked for 10 min, then instant pressure release, pulled out chicken and chopped/shredded and returned to pot. I added about a 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and Parmesan cheese and stirred in sauteed mode for about 3-5 min. THEN threw in the boiled chicken tortellini……. DELICIOUS and all the family LOVED it!

  7. Allison B says:

    Wow! This was a good soup. I omitted the celery and carrots and I feel it tastes pretty good without them. My picky kids loved the soup and begged for seconds! Really easy to throw together and serve for lunch or dinner. I really appreciate you posting this recipe and what steps to take especially for novice users like me. 🙂 I look forward to your recipes!
