How To Make Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

This is so easy to make with an Instant Pot or traditional pressure cooker and there aren't that many steps or ingredients.

Fresh veggies, carrots, celery, onions, and garlic in a Ninja food processor.

You can chop and dice up the veggies by hand, or you can use a food processor. I love to use my Ninja for recipes like this. It makes short work of a tedious task...I know....chopping veggies is not that big of a deal but if I can save time, I'll do it. (The model I use has a spiralizer that's perfect for salads - check out my apple pecan raisin salad and apple crumble here along with a video of the Ninja in action.)

Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:30 minutes
Total Time:45 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 8 baby carrots
  • 3 stalks celery
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • fresh salt and pepper to taste
  • 32 ounces boxed chicken broth
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 8 ounces broad noodles
  • 1 fresh lemon, squeezed


  • Gather the baby carrots, garlic, onion, and celery.
  • For this step, you can either hand dice and chop the veggies or you can throw it all in a food processor. 
  • If you go the food processor route, pulse until the veggies are a size you like. I usually prefer mine a little larger than in this picture, but this worked great as well. 
  • Set Instant Pot to the high saute setting, add olive oil, allow to heat up a bit (about a minute) then add your chopped veggies. Cook, stirring occasionally about 2 to 3 minutes until your veggies are tender.
