My daughters hate leftovers so I always look for recipes for my leftovers. I used the chicken left from the Mealthy rotisserie chicken. We all loved this soup.

Fantastic recipe and it's so quick! I was sick and not wanting to run to the store or spend hours making soup. This recipe was perfect and really flavorful. I used egg noodles, ground white pepper, and a little extra salt, it was fantastic.

Jordan Clark says:

I love, love, love this recipe! Making homemade chicken noodle soup has never been easier. I made this and my husband thought I spent hours cooking. When I told him I made it in my pressure cooker in a matter of minutes he didn't believe me. Yummy!

Santana Williams says:

The key to this recipe is cutting the chicken up into small pieces. 1/2 to 1-inch pieces should be sufficient. I used a single, large chicken breast. It cooked the meat perfectly and was tender, not rubbery. I added some garlic and thyme to the pot and it turned out really good.

Really good for a quick recipe. I do prefer shredded chicken but when you're not feeling well and/or wanting something fast and easy, this will get the job done. Think, making a soup from scratch in less than 5 minutes! Only a pressure cooker can do that.

Quick sauté, pressure cook, and eat! It's really that simple. I add in some extra seasoning, hot sauce, and I'm good to go.

I tweaked this recipe to make it Chicken Zoodle Soup and it was fantastic. Add 3 tsp of minced garlic with the veggies while sauteing. During the last minute of sauteing, sprinkle 1/4 tsp rosemary and 1/2 tsp thyme. Stir, then add 2-3 med zucchini (chopped or spirilized) and 1 bay leaf before following the rest of the recipe. (omit the pasta) Once cooking is complete, add 2 TBSP of fresh lemon juice. Delish!!

Made the recipe as is. Perfection! I served it with whole grain bread a variety of cheeses.

Paul Woodring says:

So awesome! Easiest way to make some good old-fashioned chicken soup. The recipe is very basic, and invites variation. I added some garlic and herbs. I also love my chicken soup gratinéed, so I sprinkle a little parm on top and run it under the broiler. But generally speaking, this one works really well.

I doubled the chicken and added minced garlic to the saute. Seasoned with Pappy's Seasoning and it was fantastic!!!

Needs some additional bouillon, but worked great!

Rayce Beetz says:

Used thighs, doubled stock, added garlic & coriander. Cooked noodles separate because I doubled the veggies & 6qt only goes so far. Regardless, went from 90 minutes to 25 & the chicken was windblowingly delicious.

Diane Burkard says:

It was super easy to make and very tasty. At first I was afraid to put any noodles in it thinking it would suck up all the liquid and will be too much so I advise not to put a lot of noodles in. However when it was done it tasted great and the noodles were perfect.

Ruth Campbell says:

Fantastic - I did add 3 garlic cloves when sautéed. Also added a tablespoon Better than Bouillon. Soup was amazing. Family loved it.

Emily Sweeney says:

This was fantastic!! Didn’t change a thing. Could tweak it to make more as I quickly ran out - couldn’t believe how much everyone liked it.

Beverly Conway says:

WOW! This is the best chicken noodle soup recipe ever! I only made a 2 serving batch the first time I made it because I wanted to try it out first. It was absolutely delicious. That was yesterday. Today I am going to make a 6 serving size, and take to my neighbors down the street who are in their 90's. I am also going to take some to my other neighbor in her late 80's and just lost her husband. She is also blind. There is nothing like homemade chicken noodle soup to soothe the soul. This recipe is outstanding and I will make it over and over again. Thanks.

This is the best chicken noodle I've ever had hands down. Super easy to make and everyone loved it. I will make half the quantity next time and still have left over with two people eating. This will serve a lot of people

Deborah Lehr says:

I used rotisserie chicken instead and it was fabulous!!! I will definitely make it again.

Ivonne Norman says:

This was the first recipe I whipped up in the Mealthy pot and boy did this seal the deal. Super impressed with how quickly you can throw these things together in the pot and get a comparable outcome to the stove top version.

All I have to say is awesome. delicious and quick.

I always add sautéed garlic, bay leaves, extra vegetables, parmesan to serve with croutons and French fried onions as a garnish.

Trudy Francis says:

Great quick soup that tastes like it’s cooked for hours. I love chicken noodle soup, especially homemade, but I struggle to get the same results each time even following the same recipe, so I was hesitant this would be good, but it was fantastic. I seasoned the chicken with onion powder, garlic, salt, and pepper, and then again when I got everything in the pot.

I made this twice in 2 days. A regular batch and a gluten free batch. For both I added some Herbs de Provence seasonings & it was DELICIOUS!!! For the version with the gluten free penne pasta I added a minute to the cook time & it was perfect! This was perfect as I ended up being sick and homemade chicken noodle soup always makes everything better.

I loved this! Super easy. I went ahead and added some grape jam and mustard. Really tops it off nice!! Old family secret.

Brian Mabery says:

This is just “okay.” It’s definitely missing something. Very bland. I’d recommend a chicken bouillon cubes.

Robin Gallant says:

Followed this to the letter for 8 servings! I used pre-chopped fresh veggies from the market! Very straightforward chicken noodle soup for purists! A bit messy with quick release so beware of splattering!

Loved it. Super quick and flavourful. I will use less noodles next time.
