  • 2 Tbsp. butter or olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 1 Tbsp. diced garlic
  • 4 stalks of celery chopped
  • 3 c. chopped carrots
  • 1 Tbsp. Better Than Boullion
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp. dried Italian herbs
  • 2/3 c. long grain brown rice uncooked
  • 20 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon

  • Turn your electric pressure cooker to the saute function on high. Saute the onions in the butter for 2-3 minutes, or until translucent. Add the garlic to the onions and saute for 1 more minute.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pot. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Allow the pressure to release for 10 minutes and open the valve to vent.
  • Remove the chicken breasts from the pot and shred using two forks or in a large bowl with a hand mixer. Add the chicken back to the soup and serve with additional lemon slices.
