How to Make Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup (w/pictures!)

Super simple and super delicious!  A defos easy comfort food staple.  Soup for everyone!

1.  I chopped up some carrots, celery, and one onion and put it in the Instant Pot.  I used straight-from-the-freezer chicken thighs and put them in the center of the veggies and added water.

2. I set the cook time to Manual > High Pressure > ~25 min (20 min probably would've sufficed).  This is what came out:

3. I deboned and shredded the chicken and added some generous handfuls of elbow macaroni, a slab of butter, pepper, salt, and thyme.  I also seasoned my shredded chicken before putting it back in.

4. After stirring everything well, I put the chicken thigh bones back in for more flavour.

5.  After setting the cook time to Manual > High Pressure > 10 min (I'm really into overcooking things... I'm thinking 5min would've been plenty), this is what came out:

6. Stirred, bowled, and ready to eat!

7. And then I spilled it everywhere because I'm a klutz.  The hot soup burned my thigh through my sweatpants a little.  I also said a few choice words.

8. Sigh, the end.

In other news, my couch has a beautiful and comforting aroma now...

I used it twice and it quit working while I was using it the second time. Had to finish cooking my meal in my crockpot and eat it the following day. instant pot duo
