This Chicken Noodle Soup recipe that is made in the Instant Pot will become your family’s favorite dinner. A delicious soup that’s loaded with flavor will warm you up on a cold night.
This recipe is prepared in a 6 quart Instant Pot Duo.
How To Make Chicken Noodle Soup In The Instant Pot?
The first step in making chicken noodle soup in the Instant Pot is to prep everything.
I first start by cutting the chicken into bite-size pieces. Safe handling of the chicken is important, use a cutting board that is only used for cutting chicken on.
You can get more of my safe chicken handling tips in my Oven Baked Chicken Fajita recipe.
As I cut the chicken I place it into a bowl, set this aside and move on to the veggies.
Getting a cutting board and clean knife I move on to cutting the carrots, celery, and onion into bite-size pieces. Placing these into a bowl and then set aside.
How To Sauté Chicken In An IP
Once you have all the chicken and vegetables prepped, it’s time to sauté the chicken.
On the front of your IP press the Sauté button. It will first say 30 minutes then your IP will read Hot when it’s ready to sauté.
Once it says Hot add your olive oil into the inner pot. This will take about 3 minutes for your IP to read Hot.
Give the oil a minute to heat up then add your chicken. Sprinkle the chicken with black pepper, seasoning salt, oregano, thyme, and parsley.
Sauté the chicken until it’s brown on all sides. This will take about 3-4 minutes depending on the size of chicken pieces.
Then sprinkle the onion soup mix over the chicken and sauté for a minute. Turn the sauté button on your IP off.
Remove the chicken from the inner pot and place it into a clean bowl.
How to deglazing the Inner Pot
Once all the chicken is removed from the inner pot it’s time to deglaze it. Press the sauté button again and add 1 cup of the chicken broth.
As your Instant Pot heats up on the sauté mode the broth will begin to boil. As the broth boils it will loosen any stuck-on chicken there might be. This will help later to not get that dreaded burn.
As the broth is boiling I will scrap the bottom of the inner pot with a spatula to help loosen any stuck-on chicken.
With the inner pot deglazed turn the sauté button off. Add the chicken, carrots, celery, onion, minced garlic ( I used jarred minced garlic), and broth into the inner pot of your Pressure Cooker.
I like to press the ingredients down to make sure the broth is covering it.
Place the lid to your IP on, turn the pressure release veal to sealing. Press the high pressure (manual button on some IP’s) and adjust the cooking time to 7 minutes.
It will take about 15 minutes for the IP to come to pressure. Once it comes to pressure it will start the cooking time.
When the cooking time is finished do a quick release. This means to turn the release valve to venting. Please be careful of the stream. Remove the lid from the IP.
Add the egg noodles into the soup. Press the noodles down so the broth will cover the noodles. Do not stir.
Place the lid back on the IP, turn the release valve back to sealing. Press the high-pressure button and adjust the cooking time to 2 minutes.
It will take about 3 minutes for this to come to pressure once again.
When the cooking time is finished do a natural release for 5 minutes. This means to let the pressure come out of the Instant Pot on its own for 5 minutes.
You may need to turn the release valve to release some more steam.
Serve and enjoy.
- prep as much as you can ahead of time. If you meal prep then you can add all the prepped veggies into a ziplock bag together. If you prep the chicken keep it in its own ziplock bag.
- Don’t have chicken broth on hand? You can use water and better than bouillon chicken flavor. For every cup of water use 1 teaspoon of bouillon. I recommend mixing these together before you need it and letting the bouillon dissolve in the water.
- For more flavor from your broth, you can also use chicken bone broth.
