Instant Pot Italian Chicken Soup Recipe

We love to make different soups and stews as Fall approaches and cooler weather is on the horizon. This Italian Chicken Soup Pressure Cooker recipe is so simple and the flavor is just amazing.

Even better, this recipe can feed a crowd. The pasta stretches the meat to feed a big family or unexpected guests.

It’s easy on the budget and a hit with everyone that tries it. If you only have a slow cooker, you can make our crock pot Italian Chicken Soup.

It is the perfect soup to come too after a busy day!

Side Ideas:

We love to serve our homemade garlic bread along side this soup! It is the perfect combination.

I even learned how to freeze garlic bread so that I can easily pull out a few slices for dinner. Sometimes, I will make these Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls.

Occasionally, I will make our homemade stuffed cheesy bread. Whichever bread you decide to try, it will be tasty.

We love to dip any garlic bread or rolls into the soup! 

Pressure Cooker Italian Chicken Soup:

The kids always ask me to make this soup. You know a recipe is a hit when everyone enjoys the meal and asks for seconds. I can prepare this meal in 15 minutes or less!

The instant pot does all the work and there isn’t a ton of dishes and pans to clean up afterwards. You will be so surprised how quick and easy this meal is.

You can have dinner on the table in about 30 minutes.

Using the pressure cooker has been a game changer for my family! We have saved so much money as I can get dinner done faster than I can go through the drive through.

You will need a pressure cooker:

I am using an 8 quart Instant pot but you can use a 6 quart if you prefer. I use my instant pot all the time and it’s become one of my favorite kitchen appliances.

In the past, I would get busy and forget to take something out of the freezer. Now that I have the instant pot, dinner can be ready fast.

It only takes a short amount of time to cook using the pressure cooker but it taste like it was slow cooked all day. You can find the Instant pot on sale here.

It’s such a great kitchen gadget to invest in. The instant pot has truly changed meals around here. Give pressure cooking a try!

The entire family will be excited for dinner time when they know this delicious soup is being served. It’s so warm and hearty and just makes you feel better.

Sometimes when my kids are under the weather, they will request this comforting Instant Pot Pot Italian Chicken Soup Recipe.

We used rotini pasta but any small noodles will do. Just use what you have or what is on sale.

How to make Instant Pot Italian Chicken Soup:

  1. Dump everything (except for the pasta and the parmesan cheese) into the Instant pot.
  2. Add the lid and make sure the valve is set to sealing.
  3. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. Once finished, do a natural release to release the pressure. You can do a quick release.
  4. Remove the chicken. Shred the chicken into small pieces.
  5. Stir in the uncooked pasta. Push the sauté button on the instant pot to bring the soup to a boil.
  6. Cook the pasta, stirring frequently, for 8 -10 minutes, or until the pasta is soft. Cooking time will vary slightly until the pasta is cooked.
  7. Stir to combine all the flavors. Then serve with your favorite toppings.

Perfect Soup for Leftovers!

This soup is also great reheated for lunches. Whether you are packing for your lunch at work or the kids at school, it’s even better the next day.

I think the flavors have even more time to blend. We use a thermos to pack the soup in and keeps it nice and hot until ready to eat.

It saves me money in the long run.

  1. c
    Could cauliflower rice be substituted here for Keto friendly meal and how would i adjust the recipe?

  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. You have restored my faith in my instant pot. Added a frozen marinaded chicken breast, garlic, some Better than Boullion and soup turned out great.
