How to make chicken noodle soup in the Instant Pot?
- First, start by slicing the carrots and celery, dicing the onions, and mincing the garlic.
- Next, place the stainless steel liner into the pressure cooker and set the machine to the saute function. Afterward, let the liner get hot.
- Then, toss in the oil, carrots, celery, onions, dried oregano and thyme, and the salt and pepper. Be sure to stir the ingredients as they cook.
- Now, let the veggies and spices cook for about four (4) minutes. After that, add the garlic and let is saute for about thirty (30) seconds.
- At this point, it’s time to add the raw chicken. Simply, place the chicken into the pot on top of the veggies.
- Additionally, go ahead and throw in the bay leaf and chicken broth.
- So, once the pressure cooker is done pressure cooking the chicken soup, let it complete a ten (10) minute natural release. Then, use a kitchen towel to open the valve to release the remaining pressure.
- Afterward, remove the lid and take out the chicken. Shred it and then place it back into the soup now or after the noodles cook.
- Last, turn on the saute function of your Instant Pot. Stir in the egg noodles and let them cook for about five (5) minutes or until they are soft.
- Turn off the machine and serve the chicken soup with your choice of condiments; like crackers or dinner rolls.
That’s it, your Instant Pot chicken noodle soup is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy the recipe and wish you all the best 🙂
- Can this soup be frozen? Absolutely, we freeze soups all the time. In fact, I recommend separating the soup out into portions using freezer bags. Then freezing the portions for individual servings.
- For faster results, you can use canned chicken (drained) instead of raw. Reduce the pressure cook time to three (3) minutes and skip the natural release. Follow the rest of the directions as they are written. Except, of course, shredding the chicken.
- Do you precook noodles for soup? Typically, no you don’t want to pre-cook noodles. Otherwise, they will become way too soggy.

- 1 Tablespoon Cooking Oil (vegetable, canola, olive, etc.)
- 1 Cup White Onion (about one ((1)) medium onion, diced)
- 1 Cup Carrots (about three ((3)) medium carrots, sliced)
- 1/2 Cup Celery (about two ((2)) ribs, sliced)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Oregano (dried)
- 1/4 Teaspoon Thyme (dried)

- 1 Lb. Chicken Breast (boneless, skinless)
- 1 Large Bay Leaf
- 6 Cups Chicken Broth (low sodium)

- Turn on the pressure cooker using the “saute” function, and allow the stainless steel liner to get hot. Add the oil, onions, carrots, celery, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes or until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the garlic, and saute for an additional 30 seconds. Press “cancel” to turn off the pressure cooker.
- Add the chicken breasts, bay leaf, and chicken broth. Close the lid, ensure that the valve is set to “sealing,” and press the manual (pressure cook) button. Adjust the time to 8 minutes.
- After the time is up, allow a 10 minute natural release before opening the valve to release any remaining pressure. Carefully open the lid, and remove both chicken breasts from the pressure cooker. Place then on a plate or in a large bowl, and use two forks to shred. Set aside.
- Press “cancel” on the pressure cooker, then press “saute.” Add the egg noodles, and stir to combine. Cook the egg noodles for 5 to 6 minutes or until the desired firmness is reached. Press “cancel” again to turn off the pressure cooker. Add the shredded chicken back to Instant Pot, and stir.
