Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

With cold and flu season in full swing nothing says get well like chicken noodle soup. I remember growing up on special occasions mom would make us Mamaw’s homemade chicken noodle soup. The noodles were even made from scratch. They were my favorite part of the dish. It’s an all day affair to make it but worth the time and the wait. Since this is a cumbersome process I hardly every make it…until now.

Instant Pot saves the day!

With my new found love of the instant pot I love discovering recipes that taste homemade and are done in a fraction of the time. You would never know this only took 10 minutes to cook.

Next time I make this dish I’d like to substitute the egg noodles (which taste amazing) for homemade fresh pasta noodles.
