This Pressure Cooker Chicken Bacon Spinach Soup is a comforting and delicious dish that is perfect for your weekly dinner menu. Made with ingredients like chicken breasts, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, and spinach, each spoonful is full of flavor and will keep you full for hours!



  • Finely chopped fresh parsley


  1. Pour chicken broth into pressure cooker insert. Add chicken breasts then add cubed cream cheese, shredded cheddar, buttermilk, and spices. Close pressure cooker with lid, seal, and set to high for 18 minutes.
  2. While soup cooks, cook bacon on stovetop over medium heat until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to de-grease then, once cooled off enough, crumble into pieces.
  3. After time has ended, quick-release pressure. Then, using tongs, carefully transfer chicken from pressure cooker to a bowl. Using forks and/or an electric or stand mixer, shred the chicken then return it back to the pressure cooker.
  4. Stir in spinach and 3/4 of bacon crumbles until spinach has wilted and bacon is fully-incorporated into soup.
  5. Allow soup to sit for 3-5 minutes to thicken slightly then ladle into bowls and garnish with remaining bacon crumbles and parsley.
