  • Instant Pot
  • Cutting Boards
  • Meat Claw Shredder


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ white onion (diced)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon powdered garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound chicken breasts (about 2 breasts)
  • cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 2 large carrots (coarsely shredded)
  • 16 ounces potato gnocchi (uncooked)
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach


  • Turn your Instant Pot on to sauté mode. Add in your butter. Once fully melted, add in your onions. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until onions are translucent.
  • Add your minced garlic to your onions for about 1 minute. Enough to release the flavor, but not to burn them (they are quick to burn).
  • Press cancel on your Instant Pot.
  • Add in your thyme, salt, pepper, broth, and chicken breasts.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot. Close the sealing valve. Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes. Once time is done, do a quick release by opening the pressure valve to release all the pressure.
  • Remove your cooked chicken breasts. Shred and then transfer back to your pot liner.
  • Turn your Instant Pot on to sauté mode.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together your milk and corn starch to create a slurry.
  • Slowly stir your soup while slowly adding in your slurry.
  • Add in your carrots, and gnocchi. Allow them to cook for about 5 minutes or until done.
  • Add spinach and allow them to cook and wilt into the soup. This should take about 1 minute.
  • Serve and enjoy!
