  • Place whole chicken breasts on top of vegetables in instant pot. Cover with chicken broth. Do not add lemon juice to the pot. 
  • Cover instant pot and set to ‘Soup’ for 13 minutes
  • Allow the soup to come to pressure and cook. Once finished, quick release the pressure.
  • Remove bay leaves from the broth and discard. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Remove chicken from the pot + shred on a cutting board with forks or in a mixer.
  • Place shredded chicken back in instant pot, and stir to combine. 
  • Optional: add in cooked orzo or zucchini noodles. Serve + enjoy!

Crockpot Instructions:
  • In a pan, heat olive oil over stovetop. Sauté celery, onion + garlic until fragrant and softened, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Add sautéd veggies to the crockpot. Stir in carrots and spices.
  • Place whole chicken breasts on top of vegetables in crockpot. Cover with chicken broth. Do not add lemon juice to the pot. Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours. 
  • Once cooked, remove bay leaves from the broth and discard. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Remove chicken from the pot + shred on a cutting board with forks or in a mixer.
  • Place chicken back in crockpot, and stir to combine.
