  3. Dawn P. says:

    My family loves this soup! I've made it in the slow cooker before and I was so excited to try the Instant Pot version! My chicken did stick to the bottom a little. I know the slow cooker version says to spray the bottom before adding the chicken. Is that ok to do in the Instant Pot too?

  4. Momma Cyd says:

    Some people are sold on spraying their instant pot with non stick cooking spray. But if you have enough liquid in your pot while cooking, you should be fine. It's a personal preference. But it shouldn't hurt anything.

  5. Gloworm says:

    Super easy and sooooo good!! I used frozen chicken and got a burn notice ..so next time I will spray beforehand.. still came out PERFECT!!

  6. Gee D'angelo says:

    Loved this! Extra easy to make, just dump and wait. I didn't find the cream of chicken, so I used cream of onion and added a small carton of chicken stock. Delicious!!!!

  7. Rachel says:

    I followed the directions and it burned to the bottom of my instant pot before even sealing. I switched it to my crackpot to finish cooking there. I think if maybe I had stirred in the water it could've prevented it perhaps... I don't know.

  8. Momma Cyd says:

    So sorry you got the burn notice. That's not fun. You could even add in 1/2 cup of water in the bottom.

  9. Taylor says:

    Can you freeze it after making?
