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).
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.
