  • 1 tbsp 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.
