  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 2 cups broad egg noodles
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Set the Instant Pot to sauté and add the butter, carrots, celery and onion.
  • Cook, stirring often, for 3-5 minutes, just until vegetables begin to soften.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Place the lid on the pot and turn the valve to seal. Set to high pressure for 3 minutes.
  • When timer is complete, carefully turn the valve to vent to release the pressure.
  • Carefully remove the lid. Taste and season with salt and pepper.



To use fresh chicken breasts:
  1. Follow Step 1 and then without adding the noodles, add the remaining ingredients (including 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts) to the Instant Pot and cook for 8 minutes with a 10 minute natural release.
  2. When the pressure is released, remove the chicken from the pot and shred with two forks. Set pot to Sauté and let soup come to a boil. Add the noodles and cook for 5 to 7 minutes until they have cooked through. Return the shredded chicken to the pot and stir to combine.
To use fresh herbs instead of dried, increase to 1 tablespoon each.
