Instructions

Instant Pot Recipes:

  1. Turn Instant Pot to sauté setting. When displays says HOT add in the oil and swirl around. Add in the onions, carrots and celery and sauté for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add in the broth and scrape the bottom of the pot so that nothing is sticking. Turn off Instant Pot.
  3. Add in the chicken and poultry seasoning. 
  4. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the SOUP button (or manual button) to 12 minutes. When time is up let the pot sit for 5-10 minutes then move valve to venting. Remove the lid.
  5. Move the chicken to a cutting board. Pour the frozen tortellini into the Instant Pot. Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. While tortellini are cooking shred or chop the chicken. Add it back into the pot.
  6. Add the parsley and lemon juice into the pot. When tortellini is cooked through (should only be a total of 3-5 minutes) turn off Instant Pot.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and enjoy.
