  • 2 pounds chicken breast
  • 8 cups chicken broth low sodium if you perfer
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 cup carrots sliced
  • 1 cup celery sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 piece bay leaf
  • ½ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon butter salted
  • 2 Tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry thyme
  • 2 teaspoons salt if you prefer less salt, only use one tsp
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces egg noodles about 2 cups


  • Put the chicken, broth, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, bay leaf, fresh parsley, butter, chicken bouillon powder, thyme, salt, and pepper into the pot. (everything but the noodles) Stir to mix.
  • Set the instant pot to pressure cook for 12 minutes.
  • When cooking time is over you may use the quick release or natural release.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot. Place it on a clean cutting board and allow it to rest for a few minutes.
  • While the chicken is resting, add the egg noodles to the instant pot and hit the saute function.
  • While the noodles are boiling, shred the chicken.
  • Boil until the noodles are just turning soft. (it will probably take no more than 5 minutes)
  • Add the shredded chicken back to the pot.
  • Remove the bay leaf before serving.


*This recipe uses an 8qt Instant Pot.
* If you have any issues with sodium, you can use low sodium broth and only 1 tsp of salt in the recipe, instead. I love it the way it is - but I am a fan of saltiness, but you should season to preference! :)
