Cooler weather calls for soup! And there’s nothing easier than instant pot chicken noodle soup for the perfect comfort food.

The Instant Pot has been my go-to cooking method lately. It’s so versatile, and I love how easy it is to use. Especially on days I am sub-teaching at the school, I want quick and easy. And fall is the perfect time for soups, so it was time to test out the soup setting to make Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup!

I took the basic idea from my one-pot chicken noodle soup recipe, and adapted it to the instant pot. The only thing I wasn’t sure about at first was the noodles. But, it all worked well in the end.

This actually uses both the saute and the soup setting on your pressure cooker. You want to saute the vegetables to begin with to get them slightly cooked. Then use the soup setting to cook the chicken and infuse all of the flavors together. Finally, use the saute again to “boil” the noodles.

Step by Step

Set the instant pot to the saute setting and melt the butter. Add the onion and celery and cook for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour the chicken broth and water into the instant pot. Place the chicken in the broth and water.

Cover and change to soup setting for 7-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes then manually release.

Remove the chicken. Add the noodles to the instant pot and set to saute for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are cooked.

Meanwhile, shred the chicken. Turn the instant pot off and return the chicken to the soup.

Leftovers

As with other similar recipes, if you know you are going to save a lot for leftovers, you need to separate the pasta. I would suggest either undercooking the pasta or only cooking what you need at the time. Then cook the remaining pasta when you reheat the soup. If the noodles sit in the soup, even overnight, they will absorb all of the liquid and become very soft.
