Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

February 8, 2018 in brews + food,cooking,creative,food,Instant Pot Recipes,recipe,recipes

I’ve mentioned several times over the last 8 years that I am a novice cook, at best. My abilities have always been hindered because of my fear of making something that tastes awful. So, for years, I just avoided cooking. I mean, Chad has always loved to cook — and he’s great at it! So I took a backseat.

But 3 years ago Chad bought me an Instant Pot and I started to dabble in making meals for our family. It’s still been something I’m not ultimately comfortable with; but the Instant Pot is an amazing invention. And the growth of its popularity has given me more and more courage to branch out and try new recipes — and adapt old ones!

My most recent Dinner Conquest was a Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup, adapted from this recipe.

Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

Serves 8 - 10
Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 7 minutes
Total time 17 minutes
Meal type Soup
This soup is perfect for a quick meal that everyone will enjoy. It's creamy, hearty, and true comfort food!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Oil, Coconut or Olive
  • 3 Carrots (chopped)
  • 3 Celery Stalks (chopped)
  • 2/3 Sweet Onion (chopped)
  • 1 packet Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix
  • 2 (32 oz) Chicken Broth
  • 1 can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup ((10.75 oz))
  • 3 cups Rotisserie Chicken, Cooked (pulled apart)
  • 8oz Spaghetti Noodles (uncooked)
  • 8 Slices Bacon, Cooked (crumbled)
  • 1 cup Half and Half
  • 2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • Salt + Pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1
Turn Instant Pot (IP) on "Saute" and wait for "HOT". Then add oil. Saute carrots, celery, and onions until onions are translucent (about 5 minutes). Then add dry ranch mix and make sure vegetables are evenly coated. Turn off saute ('cancel').
Step 2
Break spaghetti noodles in half. Criss-cross (lay flat) noodles on top of cooked vegetables. Add chicken and bacon on top of noodles. Then add condensed soup and both cartons of chicken broth. Make sure contents are fully covered by liquid (broth).
Step 3
Lock lid to Instant Pot and double-check to make sure release is in "Sealed" position. Use "Soup" setting and change to 7 minutes (use the " - " button to adjust time).
Step 4
When Soup timer goes off, naturally release the pressure for 10 minutes; then quick release and lift the lid. Stir in half & half and cheese until thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.

I am IN LOVE with comfort food this pregnancy — and this? paired with some rolls or a piece of toasted bread? Perfection! It’s just what this baby ordered! I’m in love with how creamy and hearty it is — which is perfect for a cold Winter’s afternoon!

We’re definitely adding it to our weeknight dinner rotation! 😉 The kids loved it — and so did I (and so did this baby in my tummy)!

I have an instapot on my wishlist! Then maybe I’d feed my kids something more than chicken nuggets and mac’n’cheese Monday through Friday. Hehe!
