Easy Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup in a bowl

There’s nothing like a warm bowl of chicken noodle soup to cure one’s body and soul. I’m a firm believer of the phrase “chicken noodle soup for the soul” because I find it healing for our bodies, especially during these cooler months.

I love cooking with my instant pot because it makes cooking fast, easy and hassle free. Unlike cooking on the stove, it doesn’t require me to constantly watch over the dish while cooking.

Today I’m going to share an easy instant pot chicken soup recipe that you can make quickly to feed the whole family.

This recipe is perfect for those busy days when you don’t know what to make for dinner. My refrigerator is usually stocked with these ingredients already, so I find it to be the easiest dish to make when I am overloaded with mom duties, but still want to provide my kids with a warm, nourishing meal.
