Cold and flu season has descended upon us like a million bats out of you know where. Our oldest has the flu as I write this, which means it's time for a little TLC with homemade Instant Pot chicken noodle soup.
Dan and I actually made this a few weeks ago for one of our first weekly shows, and it was a huge hit.
I don't know if it's because it's chicken noodle soup or because it's made in the Instant Pot. But I do know that it's become one of my favorite soups, especially this time of year.
What Is It About Soup?
There's just something about chicken soup when you're sick. It's soothing, it's delicious, it's piping hot, and it's full of good wholesome nutrition.
We prefer to make it homemade. We used to stock up on cans of chicken noodle soup every fall, but then we started making more homemade soups because canned got to be so expensive.
When we tried canned again for a quick meal, it just didn't taste good anymore. Our taste buds had gotten accustomed to home cooked soup right from our very own kitchen.
You might think homemade is time-consuming and difficult to make. But not so, especially when you make it in the Instant Pot (or even a good old-fashioned slow cooker).
Our Instant Pot has become a staple in our kitchen. We use it for everything, from making baby food to making entire meals, like Caulifower, Sausage, and Chicken Casserole or Chili.
There are a few veggies to chop for this soup, but you can chop them ahead of time to save you even more time and energy. And you could always make a batch of this soup and freeze it for when you need it.

Hi. You didn’t show instructions on how to use pressure cooker and for how long in your recipe. It looks good. Can’t wait to try it.
Hi Leslie, thank you for pointing this out! I’m not sure how I missed that. Goodness. So, you’d place the lid on your Instant Pot, hit ‘Pressure Cook,’ and set for 10 to 15 minutes. Then let it naturally release. I fixed the recipe quick, as well, so you can print the correct version. Again, thank you, and I apologize for missing that.
Your recipe is inconsistent with your video. You say to use cooked chicken yet In the video you use fresh uncooked chicken. Hopefully mine turns out okay since I prepared the ingredients before watching the video.
Dana, we actually cooked the chicken in the Instant Pot, which can be done before you start to make the soup or as you’re making the soup… I apologize for any misunderstanding. Usually we try to follow our recipe to a T when we’re making the videos, but in some of our older videos, we got a little offtrack.
