    Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) Chicken Noodle Soup

    I may have been playing around with my Instant Pot a bit more and I am determined to find a good use for it other than hard-boiled eggs.

    I hate wasting money and I don’t want it to just sit on the shelf and never be used.

    Well, I have been playing around with soup in the Instant Pot and I am honestly quite impressed.

    It does a really good job and it takes way less time to get a soup that’s full of flavor on the table. And what better soup to start with than an Instant Pot chicken noodle soup???

    A few other favorite easy soups I have are: Easy Taco Soup, 30 Minute White Chicken Chili, and Creamy Cajun Potato Soup.

    This Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) Chicken Noodle Soup is the easiest soup you can make! It's full of flavor, comforting, and perfect for cold and flu season! #chicken #chickennoodlesoup #instantpot

    Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

    I normally make my chicken noodle soup on the stove top and it’s an all day affair. I boil the chicken to make my own stock, remove the meat from the bones, chop veggies, and even make my own noodles.

    This Instant Pot version saves SO MUCH time.

    However, I did cheat and didn’t make homemade noodles, I just used some help from the store. As you can tell from the pictures the noodles were pretty skinny and a little skimpy.

    I should have added more noodles and I will from now on. I only bought a couple of packages and I like to test my recipes a minimum of 2 times before I post them on the blog.

    And if I would have added more I wouldn’t have had enough to keep testing. Oh, well!

    This Instant Pot (Pressure Cooker) Chicken Noodle Soup is the perfect chilly weather soup! It's full of flavor and super easy to make! #chicken #chickennoodlesoup #instantpot

    How to make the best Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

    I prefer to use a whole chicken to make chicken noodle soup with the bones and skin. There are a lot of nutrients and flavor in using the bones and skin of a chicken.

    Yes, it will require you to debone and take the skin off after cooking but it’s worth it.

    It will also produce a skim on the surface of the soup which is completely normal. You can choose to skim it off or leave it.

    I honestly leave it and just give the soup a good stir before serving. My kids need a little extra fat, lol! 🙂

    Tips for making Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

    • Use whatever vegetables you like. I just stuck with the standard chicken noodle soup vegetables for this post.
    • Use whatever type of pasta you like as well. I like to make my own pasta but any store bought pasta will work well in this recipe.
    • This soup will freeze well. Just one tip on freezing this……don’t add the noodles because they can become mushy. I have frozen the soup with homemade noodles (mine are pretty thick cut) and it was ok, but that is my experience and I know others can experience things differently. If you want to freeze the soup let it cool completely and pour into a freezer safe container. Freeze for 4-6 months. Thaw completely and reheat. If you left the noodles out reheat on the stove and cook the noodles until al dente.

    Ingredients
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 (3-4 pound) (1.3-1.8kg) whole chicken, giblets removed and discarded
    • 4 cups (950ml) low sodium chicken stock/broth
    • 4 cups (950ml) water
    • 4 large carrots, peeled and diced (or sliced into rounds)
    • 3 stalks celery, diced
    • 6 ounces (170g) egg noodles (or pasta of choice)
    • 2 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
    Instructions
    1. Turn 6 quart Instant Pot to high saute function. Once hot add oil and onion. Cook until slightly softened. Add garlic and cook stirring for 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Press cancel to stop saute. 

    2. Add whole chicken, chicken broth, water, carrots, and celery. Place lid on Instant Pot and turn to the locking position. Set the vent to sealing position. Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. Do a quick release and be careful of the steam. 

    3. Open lid and remove the chicken. Set Instant Pot to high saute function and once boiling add egg noodles, rosemary, and parsley. Boil until noodles are tender. Meanwhile, remove the bones and skin from the chicken and shred or chop meat into chunks. When the pasta is tender stir the meat into the soup. Taste for salt and pepper and season accordingly. 

    Recipe Notes
    1. Time does not reflect the amount of time to pressure up or the time it takes for do a quick release. 
    2. Sometimes if the soup is lacking some flavor I like to stir in some Better than Boullion Chicken Base. 
    3. Use whatever vegetables you like. I just stuck with the standard chicken noodle soup vegetables for this post. If you are adding peas or corn add in towards the end of cooking the pasta. 
    4. Use whatever type of pasta you like as well. I like to make my own pasta but any store bought pasta will work well in this recipe. Just cook until tender.
    5. This soup will freeze well. Just one tip on freezing this……don’t add the noodles because they can become mushy. I have frozen the soup with homemade noodles (mine are pretty thick cut) and it was ok, but that is my experience and I know others can experience things differently.
