As we ease into the cold and flu season, it’s important to stay on top of our health by getting enough vitamin C and sleep to keep our immune system strong. Recipes like this Instant Pot chicken noodle soup can not only help us stay nourished and protected against illness, but they can be a great source of relief if we do happen to fall victim to the common cold.
Aside from being warm and comforting, this Instant Pot chicken noodle soup recipe is incredibly easy to make. This is perhaps the best part of this soup recipe because when you’re feeling sick, the last thing you want to do is hover over your kitchen stove and prepare a laborious meal.
To create this chicken noodle soup, you’ll need your classic soup ingredients like carrots, celery, noodles, and, of course, chicken. For this recipe, we use a whole chicken that’s cooked then shredded using a couple of forks. The shredded chicken is then added back into the pot and stirred with the rest of the soup ingredients.
This Instant Pot chicken noodle soup recipe only requires a few hands-on steps, including the part where you shred the chicken and the part where you sauté the onion and garlic. If you don’t want to chop up your veggies yourself, you can buy pre-chopped veggies from the market (either in the frozen food aisle or the produce section).
Once your soup is ready, feel free to serve yourself a bowl then keep the rest of the soup warm using the pot’s “keep warm” setting so that you can enjoy hot soup for the remainder of the day.
