Instant Pot Ranch Chicken Chowder

Yes it’s time for another Instant Pot soup! You may recall that I love chicken corn chowder. I also love the combination of chicken and ranch, as well as potatoes and ranch. I’d never had ranch soup and the idea of it sounded really appealing to me. Voila Instant Pot Ranch Chicken Chowder! As with my other Instant Pot chowders, this one is tasty and filling. The ranch flavor adds a little zing to the thick soup. Here’s how I make it.

Equipment needed

  • Instant Pot pressure cooker (I used 6 qt model)
  • Instant Pot glass lid for keeping warm while serving
  • silicone spoon
  • measuring cup – I like the Pyrex glass measuring cups. They are super easy to read, wash well, and are very sturdy when placed on the counter.
  • cutting board
  • potato peeler – I only use the stainless steel ones with a swiveling blade. It’s the same exact type that my Grandma used. I have tried others and the stainless swiveling models always perform the best for me.

    I love the simplicity of this recipe! I don’t have an instapot, but I do love my Crockpot and pressure cooker, and I’m sure your chowder would turn out just as delicious made in either of those. I’ve never had a chowder with ranch, but it makes total sense! Yum!

    I’m on a huge bacon kick right now, so that is amazing! I love that it is GLUTEN FREE (so I can eat it). My only prob is the instapot! Maybe Santa will help me out!

    A friend of mine uses ranch when she fries chicken but to use it in a chowder might be something great. I will have to try this someday.
