    Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

    This chicken noodle soup made in the Instant Pot is my go-to recipe when I want comfort food that comes together quickly. It takes only about 10-15 minutes to prep the ingredients and less than 15 minutes of cook time in the Instant Pot. I thought now is the perfect time to share this recipe – there is nothing better than warm and cozy soup on a cold winter day. And the Instant Pot makes it easy to make this homestyle classic.

    Gluten-Free & Low Carb Chicken Noodle Soup in Pressure Cooker

    This chicken noodle soup is naturally healthy because it doesn’t use any highly processed ingredients. You can make this soup gluten-free by using gluten-free pasta or by using zoodles (noodles made from zucchini, or even sweet potatoes). If you are looking for a low carb chicken noodle soup in the pressure cooker, use zoodles.

    Can You Use Boneless Chicken Breast for the Chicken Noodle Soup

    Yes, you can use boneless chicken breasts but cooking the chicken with the bones and skin on will give you a more flavorful and delicious broth. If you use boneless chicken breasts, reduce the time to 8 minutes.

    Can You Use Frozen Chicken for the Chicken Noodle Soup in the Pressure Cooker

    Yes, you can. The time will vary depending on how big your chicken pieces are. You could start with 12 minutes or longer if the chicken pieces are large. If the chicken is still not cooked through, add the chicken back to the Instant Pot and cook for a couple more minutes.

    Can You Freeze Chicken Noodle Soup

    Pasta doesn’t hold up well in the freezer. The pasta gets overcooked and mushy when reheated, and can make the whole meal a bit of a mess. If you cook this chicken noodle soup in the pressure cooker specifically to freeze for later, just don’t add any pasta. You can add freshly cooked pasta when you defrost and reheat the soup. Or if you have leftover soup, and you would like to freeze it for later, you can remove the pasta before freezing.

    • Turn the Instant Pot to the ‘Saute’ setting and add the oil and butter. Stir until butter has melted. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and saute for about 3 minutes, or until the onions soften. Add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds.
    • Season with salt and pepper, and add thyme. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper on both sides and add them to the pot. Pour carefully the chicken broth and water.
    • Close the lid and set the Instant Pot to the ‘Soup’ setting and set the timer to 10 minutes.

    I would like to win this instant pot because I have only heard good things about them. I like to cook and I like the idea of having an instant pot because it is a more than just an instant pot. You can cook things in different ways.

    We have been debating for the past year between getting an instant pot or getting an air fryer, and we opted for the air fryer, even though we still want an instant pot. The air fryer is great, but my sister in law can’t say enough good things about her instant pot.

    Your chicken soup looks delicious. I make mine using whole chicken legs. I usually cook them a day before, remove the chicken and then put the broth in the refrigerator to cool. The next day I remove the fat from the top of the glass vessel that I had it in. Then the next day I add the chicken meat and veggies, but I do not add the pasta because it would be overcooked when reheating. I cook the pasta separately and add portions to bowls when I serve. Thank you for your recipes.

    I want to win the Instant Pot for those evenings when we need to eat later than usual after basketball, soccer, or whatever else our teens are doing!

    I would love to win a n Instant Pot because hubby and son have different work schedules and it would be nice to whip up healthy meals quickly.


    I have been going back & forth with myself about purchasing an Instant Pot. Take the decision out of my hands 😉

    Neli, thank you for the generous offer of an instant pot. I would like one because we are often working late and sometimes it’s just too late to cook a good dinner. A crock pot meal would have been lovely, IF we had thought of it 8 hours earlier. I’m finding many great recipes, and would love to try this new invention!!

    I’d love to win the instant pot! I’m a busy mom to 4 and our evenings are full of running from swim practice to basketball practice, church, PT and other things. This would make dinners on our crazy, busy days much easier.

    The soup looks delicious!!


    I want to win because I have a lot of health problems and I dont have the energy to cook. It would be really easy with this!
