Always on the look out for a new soup, this Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken soup is the result of my latest experiments in the kitchen.

Combining many  ingredients that I enjoy;  Sun Dried Tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese, Bell Peppers, Cream,  it’s going to be rich and creamy with bursts of  flavour.

I make things up as I go when I am cooking, modify existing popular recipes from my collection, and getting inspiration from what I see in magazines, TV and of course the internet.  Foodyub and Pinterest are two of my favourite sites to draw from.

At my house,  three of us love soup,  one can take it or leave it, and one will only eat NON tomato broth based soups.    Now this soup has a cream base but it’s not bland at all, getting a pop of flavour from the Sun Dried Tomatoes,  Cumin, Chili Powder and of course garlic!

Instant Pot cooking has really changed dinner time for us because despite all the Meal Prepping I do,  plans change and life happens.   Knowing that I can rely on the Instant Pot to produce a delicious meal for us in very little time while still giving us a home cooked, full flavoured, dish is definitely a game changer.  Furthermore,  everything has more intense flavour in a much shorter time and of course, it’s the perfect method for getting super tender meat in a hurry.

Give my latest creation a try, and let me know what you think.
