What is the soup setting on the Instant Pot?

The Instant Pot soup setting is programed to cook the soup on high pressure for 30 minutes, cook times may vary based on your Instant Pot. This allows the soup to come to a slow simmer which makes the broth clear.

I really like to be able to push the soup button on my Instant Pot knowing it is going to do all the work for me!

Can you Cook Pasta in the Instant Pot?

Absolutely! That is why I love the Instant Pot so much. Everything can be cooked in the Instant Pot and saves me time in the kitchen!

You will cook the chicken and the remaining ingredients in the Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup under the pressure setting. You will add the noodles to the broth and use the sauté setting to cook your noodles. They will come out perfect!

How to Release Pressure in the Instant Pot?

There are two ways you can release pressure in the Instant Pot. You can do the natural release which takes time or you can use the quick release which is my personal favorite!

The quick release allows you to get dinner on the table fast so you can enjoy family time!

How to make Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe:

Close up of the chicken noodle soup in the instant pot.

1. Place the chicken, onions, carrots, and celery in the Instant pot.

2. Add seasonings. I also like adding in bay leaf.

3. Take the 2 cup of water and whisk in the ¼ cup of flour.

4. Pour into the Instant pot.

5. Add in the chicken broth.

6. Add the lid and make sure it is set to sealing set the timer for 20 minutes.

7. Do a quick release. Remove the chicken and shred.

8. Once chicken is shredded, add the chicken back in the instant pot.

9. Turn the instant pot to the sauté setting and bring the soup to a boil.

10. Add in the frozen reames noodles and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until noodles are cooked through. I also like adding a little olive oil to prevent the noodles from sticking together.


Also if you want to use dry noodles instead of frozen, you would just cook them for about 6 minutes until they are cooked through.

  • Add in the seasonings.
  • Take the 4 cup of water and whisk in the ¼ cup of flour.
  • Pour this mixture into the Instant pot.
  • Add in the chicken broth.

  • After this cook time, do a quick release and shred the chicken.

Recipe Notes

You can also make this with frozen chicken breast.  When using frozen chicken, increase the initial cook time to 30 minutes with a quick release. 
Also, regular egg noodles can be used instead of the frozen noodles in this recipe.  If using regular noodles, cook them on high pressure for 3 minutes with a quick release once they have been added.

  1. Wonder if it could be made using cauliflower rice to make it more keto friendly, like a chicken rice soup? how would you adjust the liquid and cook time?

  2. Yes, I think that would taste great! I would just add the cauliflower rice in at the end instead of the pasta and cook accordingly to the instructions for the cauliflower rice. Let me know how it turns out!

  3. 5 stars
    Fantastic recipe. Have made several times. Easy and quick to throw everything together and end up with a flavorful, nutritious lunch or dinner. We have even thrown in pearled barley in place of noodles for another delish twist on a classic chicken soup. This one’s a family favorite and keeper!
