Have you jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet? If not, you should! I’ve had mine for about a year now and I absolutely LOVE it!!! I use it probably 2-4 times a week. It’s so great to just be able to pop the food in there, walk away and have a meal ready in as little as 20 minutes. I can make an entire meal in just the one pot, so there’s less clean up afterwards too! I’ve never considered myself to be a good cook, I always stuck to the recipes I knew how to do. It doesn’t help that I married a man who used to be a cook in restaurants. Needless to say, I have never been super confident in the kitchen!
Since getting the Instant Pot I have become a lot more experimental. Everything from soups and chili’s, to roasts and applesauce. I never would have tried some of these recipes before. I’ve had some fails, but for the most part the meals I’ve tried have turned out pretty well.
Anyway, I wanted to make Chicken Noodle Soup last week. I love soups in the fall! I came up with an idea to make it, my hubby tweaked it a little, and then I made it and it was delicious!!! It’s made using rotisserie chicken. You can make this in the Instant Pot as well (here’s a recipe from Cooking with Curls). I use store bought as my husband buys a rotisserie every week for his work lunches. You can also just use chicken breasts or thighs.
So, I started by sauteing the onion, carrot and celery in canola oil using the saute function on your Instant Pot until the onions become translucent. I added in the chicken and then I added in the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and turned off the saute mode. Finally, I added in the chicken stock (which you can also make in the Instant Pot using Aileen Cooks recipe) and noodles. Set the Instant Pot to manual for 8 minutes (Note: it can take up to 20 minutes for the pot to reach cooking pressure). Once the timer went off, I did a quick release and we were ready to eat!! So, in under half an hour, we had delicious soup for supper!!
