Instapot Chicken Noodle Soup

Every lunch, my coworkers tease, “what did you bring today, Lemm? Another soup?” and shamefully, my answer seventy percent of the time is yes. Anyone that knows me well knows I love a good soup. They are so convenient, simple, make enough to feed an army and are always tasty.

However, you know what makes a soup recipe even more convenient? A pressure cooker. My husband and I had a craving for chicken noodle soup last week, and with all this spare time at home, we decided to throw our pressure cooker into the mix. It turned out so well that I had to share it with my favorite readers!

If you don’t have a pressure cooker, don’t fret, I also made a stovetop recipe for you as well! If you make it, tag me on Instagram and let me know how it goes!
