Instant pot chicken noodle soup

Growing up chicken noodle soup was my absolute favorite. I love the smell, taste, and just overall warming feeling it gives. My mom would always make it for us when we were not feeling well or on a cold day!  We don’t get too many cold days in Southern California but when it was cold nothing warms our belly more than chicken noodle soup. I have taken a family recipe, tweaked it just a tad, and made it quicker in the instant pot.

I used frozen chicken for this recipe. I bought the Cosco pack at the beginning of the pandemic right before we were all on lockdown. I remember this pack of chicken breasts being the only meat they had in the store, I’ll never forget the markets during the 2020 cCovid-19 pandemic, pure chaos, and empty shelves! On top of that but was pregnant! Boy, we’ve been through a year!

I’ve been meaning to get this recipe up now since last soup season, haha. However, having a baby put my soup season back a bit!  What a better way to finish up this recipe than today it is cold and rainy out. There has been a demand for instant pot recipes, it is noted and on my to-do list. As a busy mama, I could not recommend an instant pot enough! So without too much chit chat here’s my delicious Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup.

How To Make Chicken Noodle Soup In The Instant Pot

The tastiest broth is always homemade, but let be honest most of us do not have the time to start from scratch. That’s why I use roasted chicken bullion. It adds so much flavor to the soup. If your anything like me you love the noodles, this soup has plenty! Making the soup is a breeze it starts with a  quick saute of the veggies and herbs then pressure cooking of the chicken, and lastly adding the noodle to get soft. Top the soup with fresh thyme, or substitute with parsley. 

Do not pressure cook the noodles. We add them last on saute mode. Do this so we don’t end up with soggy noodles.
