Perfect Comfort Soup

Whether it’s a cold day or you’re under the weather, chicken noodle soup is known as the perfect comfort soup for ailments or cold weather.

I’ve made homemade chicken noodle soup on the stove many times over the years and it always takes over an hour to get the spices and flavors to marry into a flavorful chicken noodle soup.

Now, I make a family favorite recipe in the Instant Pot in less than 30 minutes.  Perfect for a spur-of-the-moment decision or just preparing a quick family dinner.

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

I’ve always enjoyed a homestyle creamy chicken noodle soup.  Adding in the heavy cream gives this soup a velvety smooth texture that tastes absolutely wonderful and the thickened soup helps make you fuller faster.

I like to use broad noodles in my soup because the thicker noodles add a nice texture to the soup.  You can add any type of noodle that you would like but the SAUTE times will vary.

You will want to check your noodles to check for al dente or tender.

Make Chicken Noodle Soup a Meal

This Instant Pot creamy chicken noodle soup can easily be served as a meal.  You can serve it with a side salad or even some saltine crackers to crunch up and put in your soup.

Making the chicken noodle soup on the creamier side will make it more filling.  Making Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup is so quick and easy, it’s the perfect busy weeknight or weekend dinner.

I’m making this now. The recipe calls for 4 cups of broth on top with the listed ingredients but only has 2 cups added in the pot. Should it be 4? Also, I don’t see where the garlic powder is added. Do you add the heavy cream in before or after the noodles? It looks really yummy. I hope mine turns out. Thanks for sharing

Hi Connie, I hope that your chicken noodle soup turned out! It is 4 cups of broth. The heavy cream is added after the noodles. Hope that helps!
