Pressure Cooker Creamy Chicken And Wild Rice Soup

In several of my posts, I have raved about my Instant Pot.    Today's recipe is another great recipe made in my Instant Pot.  Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice soup is a hearty and delicious soup loaded with flavor.   The rice is cooked to perfection  with the chicken and veggies  cooked in a delicious creamy base with some cream cheese added for a nice velvety texture. Goodness in every bite. 

The family loved this soup.   Everyone went back for seconds. This recipe is a keeper.
