Kitchen Notes

  • A 12-ounce bag of noodles will fill the pot and will result in a hearty soup. If you prefer a soup on the lighter side, only use half a bag.
  • You can substitute broken linguine or fettuccini noodles for egg noodles.
  • To save time, you can use precooked chicken. Simply add the chicken along with the remaining ingredients, pressure cook the soup for 8 minutes, and perform a quick release.
  • Don’t worry too much about making sure the chicken is fully cooked. If it is not fully cooked during the first step, it will finish cooking in the pressure cooker.
  • You can omit the water and use 6 cups of chicken broth. You may use chicken stock in place of the broth for extra flavor.
  • Because of the volume of this soup, it will take a while for the Instant Pot to build up enough pressure to cook the soup.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long can you store chicken noodle soup?

This soup will store up to four days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Can you freeze soup?

Yes. Once the soup has cooled, place it in a plastic Ziplock bag, remove the air, date the bag, and seal it. For best results, use within 3 months. To reheat, remove the frozen soup from the Ziplock bag and place it in a large stock pot. Reheat over medium heat until the soup is warm all the way through.
