  • I cooked the chicken ahead of time in my Instant Pot on the poultry setting, about 15 minutes cook time. 
  • If modifying this for a keto diet, leave out the carrots and the rice. 
  • Be sure that you do not add the essential oils directly to the hot soup while it is cooking. They should be added to the cream cheese, and then added once the soup has been removed from the heat. You will reduce the flavor of the oils if the soup continues to cook at a high heat.
