Chicken and noodle soup is a cold-weather staple. And Instant Pot Chicken and Noodles is so convenient that even the kids can make it.

This Instant Pot Chicken and Noodles Recipe is also great for treating a cold or the flu. The chicken broth, paired with veggies and egg noodles makes it just light enough that it doesn’t sit weird on your stomach.

I love to garnish my Instant Pot Chicken and Noodles with fresh parsley and franks red hot, then eat it with a slice or 2 of buttery white bread.

This is the first time I have tried to pressure cook Chicken Noodle Soup. I usually make it stovetop or in the slow cooker, but I gave that away when I got my Instant Pot.

Why is my Instant Pot chicken rubbery?

If you are dealing with rubbery chicken, it usually means that your chicken isn’t cooked fully. In the pressure cooker, boneless skinless chicken breast takes about 10 minutes to cook after it is done sealing.

Chicken is 1 of those things that you don’t want to overcook, but more importantly, undercooking can make you really sick!

How Can I Add Flavor To My Instant Pot Chicken Noodles

There are many ways to add flavor to your Pressure Cooker Chicken and Noodles. You can add hot sauce, butter, crushed red pepper even cheese and parsley.

Even using a rotisserie chicken will add some flavor to this dish. All you have to do is shred the chicken and then ass the shredded chicken to the pot first.

This is a recipe that the whole family will love.

  3. Stir the ingredients well.

Your recipe instructions call for adding broth, but there's no broth listed in the ingredients. Do you mean 2 cups water + the bullion cube?

2 cups of water plus 1 bouillon cube = 2 cups of chicken broth
