Instant Pot Creamy Garlic Chicken and Broccoli Soup

We used chicken breast for the recipe, but it can easily be made with chicken thighs or legs. Thickness of chicken breast will vary so you will have to increase cooking times if your chicken breast is thick. If you are using chicken tenders, cooking time will be less.
