So incredibly easy, you’ll wonder why you never made this before 🙂
I went over to my local Whole Foods Market 365 in Lake Oswego to see the new store and get my fresh ingredients for Instant Pot Chicken Soup With Rice. The store is GORGEOUS and so easy to roam around, I found everything I needed pretty quickly. I love that I don’t really need to worry about lots of additives and chemicals, it’s like a friendly organic wonderland… a few items I picked up were some bok choy, marinated chicken, and kale – all organic and natural.
I especially love the organic produce section which is where I picked up some of the ingredients for this amazing dish.
