Buffalo Chicken Soup -Instant Pot
This Instant Pot thing is making life way too easy. Wait, that's not a thing. There is no such thing as making life too easy in the summer. This Buffalo Chicken Soup is tasty and easy. A winning combo for sure.
Whip up a batch of this super tasty soup, pick up some crusty buns from the baker and lunch is served.
2 tablespoons ghee
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
½ white onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups cauliflower florets (I used a frozen bag of cauliflower that was defrosted - it cooks quicker and a little better)
32 ounces chicken broth
⅔ cup buffalo hot sauce (less if you don't like it as spicy)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 rotisserie chicken, pulled and shredded
fresh cilantro, for garnish
chopped green onions, for garnish
Ranch dressing oil for garnish
1. Place ghee in the basin of the instant pot then press the sauté button. Once the ghee begins to melt, add the carrots, celery, onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, until onion becomes translucent. 2. Press the keep warm/cancel button, add the cauliflower, chicken broth, hot sauce and a hefty pinch of both salt and pepper, then secure the lid, close off the pressure valve and press the Soup button. This will cook for 30 minutes once it comes up to pressure. Once the soup is done cooking, you can let it naturally release or do a quick release. Once you remove the lid, use a high speed blender to blend the soup until completely smooth. Taste to see if the soup needs any extra salt or pepper. 3. Turn the soup back onto the Saute function and add the rotisserie chicken and let cook down for 8-10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes to keep from sticking. Press the keep warm/cancel button before serving. 4. Garnish soup with a swirl of ranch, hot sauce, green onions and cilantro.
