Jet lag is beast, my friends. I find that each trip is different — just when I’m convinced that going east is much harder than going west, our trip to the south of France the last few weeks forced me to bite my tongue! Coming home was definitely more challenging, in more ways than one.

Coming home to an empty refrigerator is always tricky, especially when you have tummies in a different time zone and the motivation — or energy — to cook is hardly anywhere to be found. I always make sure to have some pasta in the freezer, but more often than not, I crave soup after a long time away. It doesn’t matter what time of year, or how hot, I think there is something so restorative and nourishing about a bowl of soup that helps you feel more at home again.

This Pressure Cooker Creamy Rotisserie Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is something I’ve been making a lot of in the past couple of months…it all started in the spring when we had rounds of the flu at home (right before our spring trip to France, actually!), and I found myself making it so much at the end of the busy school year when I felt like I had hardly any time to throw dinner together. Any time we had a rotisserie chicken, or leftover roast chicken from a previous dinner, I would make sure to save some, because the kids asked for this creamy chicken and wild rice soup over and over again. They loved it in school lunches, too!

If you have an Instant Pot, or any kind of pressure cooker (I have this one), you’ll find that it will deliver a creamy chicken and wild rice soup in no time at all. It’s perfect for using up a leftover rotisserie chicken, or cleaning out the fridge and throwing in your favorite veggies. If you have a bag of frozen mixed veggies, it’s perfect in here, too! So if you’re going away on a trip, freeze some shredded chicken and you’ll have an easy soup ready to welcome you home.

    Oh my goodness! This is sheer comfort food in a bowl. And that I can cook this in my Instant Pot is absolutely precious. I’ll get cooking right away. Thanks for sharing, Liren.
    I enjoyed your vacation posts and those food shots made me hungry.
