Instant Pot Chicken Soup

  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 6 people 1x


Learn how to make soup from chicken with this delicious guide!  The recipe is absurdly simple yet  filled with loads of hearty flavor all with the added bonus of a one pit meal!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions (chopped roughly )
  • 4 large carrots (chopped into rounds)
  • 4 celery stalks (chopped into rounds)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced on the microplane)
  • 3 chicken breasts(about 2.5-3lbs) (bone-in, skin on)
  • 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp parsley (chopped)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 6 oz egg noodles (un-cooked)


  1. Turn the Instant Pot setting to “sautee” on medium.
  2. Pour in the olive oil.  Add the onions, carrots, celery and garlic to the Instant pot. Season with salt and pepper.  Allow to sweat (no color) for 5-7 min.
  3. Pour in the stock into the multicooker and add in the chicken breasts.
  4. Set the Instant Pot to “soup‘ for 10 minutes.
  5. Once the Instant Pot soup cycle is complete, wait until the natural release cycle is complete, this should take about 10-15 minutes depending on your model.
  6. Remove the chicken breasts with tongs to a cutting board and shred with your hands or two forks.
  7. If you are planning on eating the soup in one sitting, at this point go ahead and turn on the “sautee” setting on the Instant Pot.  Once the soup boils add in the noodles and cook according to the package instructions.
  8. If you plan on saving the soup for later or want to eat it throughout the week, just cook the noodles separately and keep in a separate container in the fridge.
  9. Turn off the Instant Pot by pressing “cancel” Place the chicken back into the pot.  Taste and season.  Garnish with the parsley and enjoy.
