Instant Pot Chicken Soup

This recipe (inspired by Jo Cooks) came in handy recently when I decided at 11am Chicken Soup was what was on the menu for today. Usually I would make this in the crockpot, but it would end up taking 6 plus hours. This was made in about an hour, just in time for lunch! I will say it tasted EVEN better the next day as leftovers.
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme dry
  • 1 tsp parsley dry
  • 1 tsp oregano dry
  • 4 cups chicken broth (no/low sodium)
  • 12 oz chicken
  • 4 cups water
  • 5 oz egg noodles uncooked, (about 2 cups)
Instructions
  1. Turn your Instant Pot to the saute setting.

  2. Add the oil and the onion, carrots and celery and saute for 3 minutes until the onion softens and becomes translucent.

  3. Season with salt and pepper, add the thyme, parsley, oregano and stir. Pour in the chicken broth. Add the chicken pieces and add another 4 cups of water.

  4. Close the lid. Set the Instant Pot to the Soup setting and set the timer to 7 minutes.

  5. Once the Instant Pot cycle is complete, wait until the natural release cycle is complete, should take about 10 minutes. Follow the manufacturer’s guide for quick release, if in a rush. Carefully unlock and remove the lid from the instant pot.

  6. Remove the chicken pieces from the soup and shred with two forks.

  7. Add the noodles to the soup and set the Instant Pot to the saute setting again. Cook for another 6 minutes uncovered, or until the noodles are cooked.

  8. Turn off the Instant Pot, by pressing the cancel button. Add the shredded chicken back to the Instant Pot, taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary. Garnish with additional parsley if preferred.
