Instant Pot Italian Chicken Noodle Soup

When the temperatures begin to dip, that’s when I want to dip my spoon into something warm and comforting. Enter, Italian Chicken Noodle Soup. Fall and winter are typically the times I choose to make soups.

This is a soup recipe I’ve been making for several years and I’d been wanting to try it in my Instant Pot. Funny story. I bought an Instant Pot last year and it sat in my hall staring at me for weeks. I finally opened it one day and the manual was like a novel. Well I stuck that thing back in the box and returned it. I do not have the patience required to read all of that.

Someone suggested turning to YouTube for instructions. Genius! So I bought another Instant Pot and took another run at it. If you’re anything like me, you’re totally intrigued by them, but not quite sure what to do with it.

This was my second time to use it. The first time I made Pork Carnitas using the Pioneer Woman’s recipe, and they turned out great. So I was ready to try again.

I was leery not knowing if converting it from a stove top to Instant Pot recipe would work, but son of a gun it did and what do you know, it was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

Here’s what I really loved about using my new kitchen toy, aka Instant Pot. I was able to saute the onions in there before adding the rest of the ingredients, and I didn’t have to pre-cook the noodles the way I typically do. One pot clean up. Sign me up! I put it all in the pot and walked away. Yes ma’am, that’s what I’m talking about!

In addition to the ingredients pictured above, you’ll need shredded chicken. I use about 3 cups of Rotisserie chicken. #suchatimesaver

The Reames noodles are found in the freezer section and are so much better than your average egg noodle. They are a thick, hearty noodle and in my opinion what makes this soup.

    Mmmmmmm looks yummy! Anytime there’s a noodle in a soup it’s my favorite! This looks so good. My friend buys her rotisserie chicken at Costco – they sell it already shredded in a package. I need to remember that because that would be a huge time saver for soups, casseroles, and dips!
    Love seeing your posts early in the morning!

    Wow. This looks REALLY good. REALLY, really good! I don’t have an Instant Pot, but was thinking about one for Christmas. I just pinned this to my Instant Pot board and the instant pot you use. Yes, I have a recipe board with instant pot recipes, even though I don’t own one! Lol! They’re kinda pricey tho! Eek! The noodles in this look REALLLLLLY good.

      Carrie! I had an Instant Pot board forever too before I had an actual Instant Pot. Love it. You can totally make this stove top too, just cook the noodles first before adding to everything else and maybe let the other stuff come to a boil for a few minutes. Black Friday is coming and IP’s will prob be on sale?

    This looks delicious! I’ve never made Italian Chicken Noodle soup but I think I’ve been missing out! I don’t have an instant pot, but I have been debating putting it on my wish list for Christmas. After seeing this I am totally caving! Yum!

      I’m dying to figure out what to make next. It was very exciting. LOL You can make it on stove top too, just boil the noodles first and then add to other ingredients but let the others simmer for a little while before noodles. Does that make sense?
