A flavorful and hearty instant pot chicken noodle recipe that the entire family will love and appreciate!
Who doesn’t crave a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup when the temperature starts dropping? Although cold weather isn’t required to make this chicken noodle soup, nothing beats a bowl of chicken soup on a cold snowy day.
What I love most about this instant pot chicken noodle soup recipe is the fact that it’s done in under an hour. You basically throw everything into a pot and voila. I kept the recipe simple, but feel free to throw in as many vegetables as you’d like. You can use an entire chicken if you’d like but I think 2-3 lbs is the perfect amount. The best thing to serve this chicken soup with is some fresh lemon and hot sauce! Nothing better than chicken noodle soup with a little kick to it.
You may add some chili powder or red crushed pepper if you don’t like hot sauce but who doesn’t like hot sauce?! Did I mention that this makes fabulous leftovers?
Can you make this recipe without an instant pot?
Absolutely! You will just have to adjust the cooking time.
Should I use white or dark meat?
I highly suggest using bone-in chicken thighs and legs for this soup.
Can I omit the noodles and load it up with vegetables instead?
What can I serve this chicken soup with?
lemon, lime, salt crackers, bread, etc.
