How to make Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
This soup takes just 30 minutes from start to finish in the Instant Pot! It’s the perfect one pot meal! I use the sauté option on the Instant pot to sauté my onions, carrots and celery in butter. Then I add in my chicken stock, chicken thighs and fresh herbs. I set the Instant Pot to manual and cook for 8 minutes or until the chicken shreds easily with two forks. Once the chicken is cooked I leave the lid off of the instant pot and add in the noodles and let them boil until al dente. Right before serving serving I add in the juice of one lemon. It brightens the soup so much and makes it that much more delicious!
What to serve with Chicken Noodle Soup
I love serving this soup with crusty bread for dipping and a side salad. Grilled cheese, biscuits or homemade rolls are also amazing with this soup!
Can you freeze this soup?
This soup does freeze well. If you are planning to freeze the soup I would suggest cooking the egg noodles separately and freezing the broth in an airtight container. When you are ready to serve reheat the soup on the stove top and serve with cooked egg noodles, tortellini or rice!
