When cold and flu season are upon us, this recipe always brings comfort when you are feeling a bit under the weather, or just want something that warms your tummy, but is not too heavy. Traditional stracciatella does not have the chicken or rice in it, but it adds a bit a substance when you want something light, but filling.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups diced rotisserie chicken meat
  • ¼ cup long grain rice
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine chicken broth, chicken, and rice in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 4 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, whisk eggs and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese together in a small bowl. Season with black pepper. Set aside.
  3. 3 Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Change pressure cooker setting to Saute. Pour egg mixture into the broth in a slow steady stream while whisking. Cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately and garnish with parsley.

  1. It tastes great my sister loved it who’s very picky.
  2. Three stars for flavor only. The rice turned mushy and the soup wasn't as thick as I thought it would be. It was hard to tell where the rice ended and the chicken began. Not the soup I would make again.
  3. Loved it. Easy and hardy.
