This instant pot chicken vegetable soup makes a hearty and comforting dinner that the entire family will love. Made with chicken, noodles, and vegetables in under 30 minutes!
Instant Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup
Nothing beats a bowl of chicken vegetable soup on a cold winter evening. A decadent meal that can be served before dinner or as a dinner entre. Although this soup contains noodles feel free to omit the noodles and add more veggies instead. Just an FYI, Instant Pot recipes are a lifesaver during those busy weeknights.
If you’re on a low carb diet I would recommend incorporating as many green vegetables as you can. Completely made from scratch and doesn’t include any store-bought seasoning packets. When making soup I prefer to use all fresh ingredients.

Ingredient’s You’ll Need:

- Mixed Vegetables – Frozen vegetables are what I used for this recipe but canned or fresh work as well.
- Canned Diced Tomatoes – If you’re not a fan of chunks of tomatoes use tomato sauce instead.
- Chicken Stock – I prefer chicken stock over water because it adds so much more flavor!
- Lemon Juice – Adds freshness and flavor.
- Parmesan Cheese
- Granulated Garlic
- Olive Oil

How to Make Chicken Vegetable Soup in The Instant Pot
This soup recipe is super simple to make, all you have to do is follow these quick and easy steps:
Press the saute function on your instant pot and cook the onions and garlic.
Add the chicken, granulated garlic, salt, pepper, diced tomatoes, and chicken stock. Press the cancel function and then pressure cook on high for 7 minutes. Once it’s done cooking let the steam release completely.
Remove the chicken from the instant pot and shred it or dice it.
Add the vegetables and noodles and cook until the noodles are fully cooked through. Place the chicken back into the instant pot along with the parmesan cheese and lemon juice. Cook for an additional minute or two. Check for seasoning and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
Read the instant pot manual before using it.
What Is The Difference Between a Quick Pressure Release and a Natural Pressure Release?
Quick pressure release is when you switch to the venting position and let the steam release quickly as soon as it’s done cooking. A natural pressure release is when you leave the pressure release switch in the sealed position once it’s done cooking. This method will take longer.
How Long Will This Soup Last For?
If you plan on keeping this soup for the following day I would suggest not adding the noodles. Only because the noodles will soak up most of the liquid. Place the soup in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 3-4 days.
What to Serve This With?
I love serving soup with crusty bread or saltine crackers. You may also do a small side of white fluffy rice.
