I had to make it up as I went since there were zero instructions other than hit the “soup” button.
I had bought this stunning Maple Leaf Prime Whole Farm-Raised Chicken for a whopping $13 a while ago and was saving it for just this kind of occasion. Thankfully after going through the Instant Pot‘s soup setting the chicken came out super-tender, beautifully cooked.
I used very basic stock-making veggies, herbs and spices to make the broth. Want to learn how to make chicken broth on your stove? Check out my tutorial here.
Reg admitted to me he is not a huge chicken noodle soup fan (shocking!) but this was the best he had ever had and loved it. I have to admit, he was right. The stock was gorgeous, super-clear and was made in just 30 minutes. The chicken was perfectly cooked.
So far? I am thrilled with my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker! Once you get over the intimidation factor (which I am personally working on) it is amazing what this machine can do and I still have so much to test and try out. Very exciting!
