The fall season is almost here and that means it’s time for some warm, comforting meals! Try it over the next few weeks.
I call this soup Dylan’s favourite soup because he loves it, and could eat it every day if he has a choice! Lol. That being said, this recipe serves 4 and the rest goes into small freezer containers.
Here we have a simple Instant Pot recipe that won’t take you long to make at all. You could add in more veggies or more noodles – the options are endless. I prefer my soup a bit soupier (more broth), so feel free to add more if you’d like to!
I love using rotisserie chicken because the chicken is moist and it’s such a time saver. To save even more time, use a chopper for the veggies. Try to use thin noodles, nothing too thick/large. Wild rice is also a great substitute to make it gluten-free!
• 1 rotisserie chicken breast and 1 leg, chopped into bite size pieces
• 1 cup finely chopped celery
• 1 cup finely chopped carrot
• 1 small onion, finely chopped
• 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
• ½ cup uncooked small noodles (or wild rice)
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• 1 tsp chopped garlic
• 1 tsp dried thyme
• ½ tsp Italian seasoning
• 1 tbsp Better Than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base
• 900ml of chicken broth (or a wee bit more!)
• 2 cups of water
• Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Heat olive oil in the IP on Saute mode (High). Toss in onions, carrots and celery. Add salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 mins or until the onions are translucent.
2. Add garlic. Cook for another minute. Add more olive oil if it is sticking.
3. Add thyme, parsley and Italian seasoning. Cook for 2 minutes.
4. Add broth in slowly and make sure you scrape off anything that’s stuck to the pot (it adds more flavour)!
5. Add chicken. Mix.
6. Add the water and noodles. Add more if you like it soupy. Mix.
7. Turn off Saute mode and cook on High Pressure for 2 minutes.
8. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes then use the quick release method to let off the rest of the steam and pressure.
9. Taste for salt. Add more chicken bouillon if you want more flavour. If you end up adding more, don’t add salt.
