Recipe Tips

  • Shortcut: Leftover rotisserie chicken can be used instead in this recipe. Wait to add it when you add the noodles into the Instant Pot.
  • Frozen Chicken: If using frozen chicken, cook for the same amount of time, but let the pressure naturally release for 5-10 minutes.
  • Broth: Water or vegetable broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.
  • Quick Release: To do a quick release with your Instant Pot, wear an oven mitt and turn the venting knob to “vent” to release the steam quickly.
  • Superfood: Make this soup even healthier by adding in a handful of spinach or kale when it’s done cooking and is still hot.

Serving Ideas

Chicken noodle really is an entire meal on its own. It has vegetables, protein, and grains in the noodles, plus it’s filling but not too heavy. However, I can never resist whipping up some homemade bread to accompany it. Some of our favorites are:

Storing Info

STORE soup in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

To FREEZE let the soup cool first, then pour into a freezer safe container leaving some room for expansion at the top. Soup can be frozen for up to 3 months. (If you are planning to freeze this soup it is best to wait to add the noodles until you heat it up again. They will get mushy when frozen.)

To REHEAT, first thaw in the fridge overnight and then warm up in a pan over medium/high heat bringing to a boil, add the noodles, and then simmer until they are tender.
