  • 2 cups egg noodles
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts or shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic minced (optional)
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 stalks celery sliced
  • 1 1/2 quarts chicken broth low sodium recommended
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme

Serving - optional

  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Cook the noodles according to package directions and drain when al dente.
  • On the Instant Pot, select the sauté setting and wait until it reads hot.
  • Add the chicken meat and sauté 3-4 minutes until starting to brown on the outside.
  • Add the garlic, onions, carrots and celery. Stir for 2-3 minutes until the onions are starting to soften.
  • Add the chicken broth, bay leaves and thyme. 
  • Cover the Instant Pot and close the lid, setting the vent to the sealing position. Select "soup" with a timer for 10 minutes.
  • Once the cycle has completed, allow another 5-10 minutes for the natural pressure release. You can also use the quick release to save time, but observe all Instant Pot safety precautions.
  • Carefully unlock and remove the cover. Remove the chicken to a plate and shred into bite size pieces using two forks. 
  • Add the shredded chicken and cooked noodles to the Instant Pot.
  • Add lemon juice and optional fresh parsley. Taste the soup and season with salt and pepper to your preference. Serve and enjoy!
