Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

IMG_1473 2

I’m always on the hunt for new recipes that won’t make my acid reflux flare up and this Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is an incredible one! It has a deliciously satisfying homemade flavor, is filling, and makes enough for leftovers. I like to make it in my Instant Pot but I’ve also made it in my slow cooker with fantastic results.

This recipe is great to enjoy even if you don’t suffer from Acid Reflux or GERD. It’s also designed to be a healthier option for those who suffer from high Triglycerides and high cholesterol. It really is a fantastic option for the whole family (even my kid loves it!).

Note: If you notice that any of the listed ingredients are triggers for your acid reflux, they can be left out and you can still enjoy this delicious soup and all of its yummy flavors.

  4. Close the lid and set the valve to seal. Set the Instant Pot to the Pressure Cook setting and set the timer to 10 minutes.
  5. Once the pressure cook cycle is complete, natural release for 8 minutes and then quick release. Once it’s safe to do so, carefully unlock and remove the lid from the Instant Pot. (Always refer to your user manual for proper use of your Instant Pot or pressure cooker)
  6. Remove the chicken breasts and shred with two forks.
  7. Remove the bay leaves. (You don’t want to eat those!)
  8. Set the Instant Pot to saute and bring the soup to a boil. Once boiling, add the uncooked noodles to the soup. Cook as directed on the package of noodles, uncovered.
  9. Add the shredded chicken and turn off the Instant Pot. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning to your preference. Serve and enjoy!
