Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

The best, easiest, and quickest homemade chicken noodle soup you will ever make in your pressure cooker! Tastes just like mom’s cozy, flu-fighting, homestyle soup!

I’m sorry guys. I am so late to the Instant Pot game here. I am clearly not an early adopter.

But! I tried the IP. And I LOVE IT.

So can I join the IP cult now?

Because I have used my IP for a month now.

And I just. cannot. stop.

Mainly because Ben gets sick every other week.

So I have made this homestyle chicken noodle soup four times in the last month.

And it’s perfection.

Now I prefer spaghetti noodles in my chicken noodle soup but egg noodles are also a great substitute, and they also cook a little faster!

Look at this! Beautiful colors! Yummy! Thank you for the recipe!

What size instapot do you use?

Can you freeze this soup?

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself. Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

You could freeze before adding the pasta. The freeze/thaw cycle turns pasta to mush.

You can freeze the soup but i would recommend taking the chicken and veggies out and freezing those separately. I freeze my soups all of the time (even use it as chicken broth for cooking other things).

Yay. Welcome to the Instant Pot Cult! Your recipes are my favorite – I literally have tried at least 30 of them and have yet to find one that my family has not liked! So excited for your IP recipes to come 🙂

I hope this means that we’ll be seeing more IP recipes in the future!

Can you do this recipe if you don’t have an Instant Pot – what would be your recommendation in the directions?

You can try this stovetop recipe instead!

What is an instapot?

The Instant Pot is a brand of electronically controlled, combined pressure cooker and slow cooker. You can read more about it here:

Sounds yummy! Can this recipe be adjusted for stove top cooking instead of instapot?

Your instructions state to add 4 cups of water, but there is no mention of water in your ingredients. So am I to assume that you are adding 8 cups of liquid? By the way, I love your recipes. They are some of the best I’ve tried.

Yes, that is correct. I typically do not add water to my ingredient list.

Can I use frozen chicken breast in this recipe?

Yes, you can but cooking time will have to be adjusted as needed.

So glad to see you are loving your Instant Pot. I was wondering if you were going to ever be using one. I will look forward to your recipes. I made the most amazing chicken broth recently. Just dumped in carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, onion skins, chicken bones (I save all the veggie discards when chopping, chicken bones, skin & put in freezer) added roasted chicken wings. Cooked 45 on high pressure, quick release.

Forgot 8 cups of water.

I smiled when I saw that comment “What is an Instapot”, and then I remembered that as of 3 weeks ago I didn’t know either! Ron

Your photography of the chicken soup is amazing. This should be used as point of purchase somewhere it would sell tons of soup! So happy you have found the instant pot. I discovered it a few months ago in BC when my sister in law was using it. Will try the soup for sure. Have you tried doing boiled eggs in your’s ? Even farm fresh eggs peel like you have never had before. Looking forward to more instant pot goodies.

Just have to chime in and say I, too, will be happy to see lots more Instant Pot recipes. I love mine but haven’t got that many good recipes for it yet. TIA

I love your blog and so glad you have Instant Pot recipes! I made this tonight, but I think I did something wrong. Normally, I feel like I have the whole Instant Pot timing down too. The chicken came out perfectly. But after I took the chicken out to cook the noodles, I noticed that I needed more water. So I added more water…but then as the noodles started cooking, the water kept getting absorbed. At the end it turned into a pasta vs. soup. All of this was on the sauté function too. Followed directions completely. Any tips?

Oh no – how much liquid did you use? The recipe calls for 4 cups broth + 4 cups water. There should be a total of 8 cups liquid.

As unusual, your recipes are amazing and do not disappoint! I made this tonight and it came out phenomenal. Thank you for sharing and helping others, like me, plan my meals!

Thanks for the recipe! If I don’t plan on cooking the noodles in the soup, should I decrease the amount of water in the recipe? I want to add the noodles later, after warming up the soup again.

If you add the noodles later, you can still keep the amount of water the same. Hope that helps!

Did you mean you stir in precooked pasta that you made on the side or literally cook the pasta in the ip at the end? If so wouldn’t the soup become cloudy bc of the starchiness.

The pasta is cooked in the Instant Pot – that’s the beauty of the Instant Pot! As far as “cloudiness”, the soup should look as pictured here.

You said 4C water, but you also said 4C chkn broth but did not say when to add the broth. So, 4C water and 4C broth?

Please refer to step #2. Both the broth and water is included in this step.

2. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Add chicken, chicken broth, rosemary sprig, bay leaves and 4 cups water to the Instant Pot®.

Now I have to buy an IP. Gonna need a bigger boat.

If I add white potatoes and cut them smaller would they cook in the same amount of time?

Yes, it should stay relatively the same, but as always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

Thank you
It’s only my third time trying to instant pot so I figured you would know better than I

My family and I LOVE this recipe! Thanks so much for posting it! The only change we make is to double the liquid (total 16 cups) – we’re all about the broth in our house!

Just got my instant pot on my birthday. I’m trying to cook this soup right now. I’m lost on step 2 when it says “select manual setting…” which setting is that? Sauté? Soup/broth?

There should be a “MANUAL” button on the Instant Pot interface.

Made this last night and both my husband and daughter had seconds. This soup is delicious and super easy to make. I used a normal pot as i didn’t have an instant pot and still turned out yummy. The herbs blended in nicely and vegs were all fresh, nice and healthy. Definitely will be making this again. Love your recipes Chungah!

Thank you so much Trisha! Glad you whole family enjoyed it!

How do you prevent the chicken from being dry? Everything turned out delicious except the chicken breast was dry after shredding.

Oh no! Did you make sure your Instant Pot wasn’t venting during the cooking process?

I added 2 sprig rosemary,so delicious . Thanks !
