Chicken Noodle Soup always reminds me of the book series – Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Have you read any of their books?

I guess I’m somewhat a bookworm ever since I could read. 😀

I always had a Chicken Soup for the Soul book in my bookshelf growing up.

When I’m down, I would pull one out from my bookshelf. Lay on my bed, and read a few heartfelt and inspiring stories.

Definitely mood-boosting, and makes you feel-good.

On those days when you don’t feel right, you just want to stay in bed, under those warm comfy blankets.

It’s extra uplifting & heartwarming when loved ones hand over a warm bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup.

Tips for Pressure Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

1. Can I substitute homemade chicken stock with store-bought chicken stock?

Yes, we tried this recipe with both homemade and store-bought stocks. Please note that the flavor will take a hit with store-bought chicken stock. Make sure to use an unsalted or low sodium version.

2. Whole Chicken Breast:

To make it even better, we used a whole chicken breast. We cut the breast in half and removed the bones. And added the bones for even more chicken flavor! Or you can throw in a few chicken bones you have in the freezer 🙂

3. Reduce Cooking Time:

Reduce ~12 minutes cooking time by bringing 4 – 5 cups of unsalted chicken stock to a boil & cooking the wide egg noodles on stovetop. You can do this while the chicken is cooking in the pressure cooker.

Author:
Recipe type: Breakfast, Brunch, Dinner, Lunch, Meat, Noodles, Pasta, One Pot Meals, Soup, Vegetables, Easy
Cuisine: American
Serving: 2 - 4
Ingredients
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (roughly 1 ½ pound, 680g) or 6 drumsticks
  • 1 small onion, roughly diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly minced
  • 6 white button mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 - 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 5 – 6 cups (1.25 L - 1.5 L) homemade chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
  • 8 ounces (227 g) wide egg noodles
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Garnish:
  • ¼ cup (21 g) Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice or more to taste
Instructions
  1. Prepare the Pressure Cooker: Heat up your pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press Sauté button and click adjust button to Sauté More function). Make sure your pot is as hot as it can be (Instant Pot: wait until indicator says HOT).
  2. Sauté the Mushrooms, Onions and Garlic: Pour 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil into your pressure cooker. Add in the chopped white mushrooms, a pinch of kosher salt and ground black pepper. Stir to evenly coat the mushrooms with olive oil.

    Mushrooms start releasing their moisture. Let the moisture evaporate and stir occasionally until mushrooms are slightly crisp and browned.

    Add in diced onions, minced garlic and cook until onions soften and fragrant (roughly 1 - 2 minutes). Add in bay leaf, chopped carrots and celery. Stir and season with kosher salt and ground black pepper if you like.
  3. Deglaze: Pour ⅓ cup (80 ml) unsalted chicken stock. Scrub all the flavorful brown bits off the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon. Pour in the remaining chicken stock ⅔ cup (170ml).
  4. Pressure Cook the Chicken Meat: Partially submerge chicken breasts or drumsticks into the pressure cooker’s liquid. Close lid.

    For Chicken Breasts: pressure cook at High Pressure for 7 minutes + 8 minutes Natural Release.

    For Chicken Drumsticks: High Pressure for 8 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release.

    Optional (see tips section): While the chicken is pressure cooking, bring 4 – 5 cups unsalted chicken stock to a boil on the stovetop over medium high heat.
  5. Shred Chicken: Open pressure cooker’s lid, remove bay leaf and chicken. Use fork to shred chicken.
  6. Make Chicken Soup: Pour 4 – 5 cups (1 L - 1.25 L) unsalted chicken stock into pressure cooker and bring it to a boil over medium high heat (Instant Pot: press Sauté button and click adjust button to Sauté More function).
  7. Cook Noodles & Season: Pour in wide egg noodles and cook until desired texture. Roughly 4 – 8 minutes.

    Season chicken soup with kosher salt (roughly a few pinches) and ground black pepper. Brighten with freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste (roughly 1 tbsp, 15 ml).
  8. Serve: Turn off the heat, add shredded chicken into pressure cooker. Garnish with Italian parsley and serve immediately.
Notes
Homemade chicken stock vs store-bought chicken stock
We tried this recipe with both stocks. Please note that the flavor will take a hit with store-bought chicken stock. Make sure to use an unsalted or low sodium version.

Can I use frozen chicken breast? If so, how is the cooking time adjusted?

I have had my IP for a week and have tried a number of your recipes, but this chicken soup recipe is my favourite so far! Flavourful and filling, great as a meal. My one surprise was the number of pinches of salt required at the end to really bring out the broth’s flavour. I like prepping meals for work, so I hope this freezes and reheats nicely.

Can you use those frozen Reames egg noodles? If so, can you use the instant pot pressure cooker to cook them since they take quite a bit longer than regular egg noodles?

Hi Amy and Jacky you have done it again. I would never have thought to boil the rest of the chicken broth separately and add it after. I also added a few diced potatoes with the carrots and it turned out delicious.
Thanks again for all your tips it sure does shorten the cooking time.

Hi Amy and Jacky, thanks for working so hard to share so many great instant recipes. I really enjoy reading your blog and it has helped me a lot when I cook with instant pot.

Can I ask if I can substitute wide egg noodle with pasta (e. g. shell pasta or spiral) ? I can’t find wide egg noodle in Singapore. If so, the cooking time of the pasta is the same as wide egg noodle?
Thanks!

Well, this was our first meal made with our new Instant Pot. We followed your recipe closely, except we used a Costco rotisserie chicken. We were just curious how it would turn out. It was the best chicken noodle soup ever. Very pleased with the results. Thanks for sharing.

Hi, I cooked a chicken last night , If I was to use a the cooked chicken should I make any adjustment to stock or cooking time ?

I made the mistake of placing the noodles in the IP with the other ingredients. They turned to mush. Thank for advice to prepare on stove top separately.

Could I use frozen drumsticks? what would the cooking time be?
Does the drumsticks all need to be submerged in liquid? I have a costco package of drumsticks that are frozen so its not frozen flat and in pieces…

I wonder if this recipe would work using spaghetti squash (noodles)? I want to try using them in a soup.
