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.

Carrots, celery, and onions sauteing in the stainless steel liner.

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.

Raw chicken breast has been added to the sauteed vegetables.

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.

The soup has cooked and the chicken can be shredded.

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.

The chicken breast has been shredded and returned the liner.

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 🙂

Recipe Tips:

  • 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. I just made this without the noodles, and the only thing I added was a tablespoon of chicken bouillon after it was done. It has an INCREDIBLE flavor and is so fast to prepare. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will be sharing it with my family, too.
