Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

My family is obsessed with chicken noodle soup. I literally paid my brother in law to move a piano for me in chicken noodle soup. We probably have it once a week, so now I think we have it down to a science. I always make it in my instant pot to save time (and so I don’t have to babysit it). I am certainly not a chef or a food blogger but I hope this recipe makes sense and is yummy for you and your family!

Thyme is such a powerhouse of a herb. Amazing for colds, chest congestion, sinus pressure, and coughs. Thyme is most widely known for being a chicken noodle soup herb.

It tastes herby, drying, and slightly heating. Thyme is antitussive, antispasmodic, expectorant, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant, astringent , anti inflammatory (and more).

Keep a ton of thyme on hand in the winter months! It is amazing in a bath for kids with a cough, as a facial steam for adults with stuffed and swollen sinuses, in chicken noodle soup for building nourishment in the body, and more! I buy this in the bulk section!

Now for the recipe:


1.5-2 lbs chicken breast

8 cups chicken broth

10 Oz egg noodles

2 tbsp butter or avocado oil

1 yellow onion diced

4-5 cloves garlic (smashed then) minced

3 carrots, chopped

4 celery stalks, chopped

2 tsp dried thyme

2 bay leaves

salt to taste

pepper to taste


1. Sauté onions, garlic, carrots, and celery until onions are translucent.

2. add thyme, chicken breast, bay leaves, salt, pepper, and chicken broth

3. set instant pot to manual pressure for 20 minutes (22 if frozen, can do 18 if fully thawed)

4. Once it’s finished, vent pressure manually.

5. Remove the chicken and shred using 2 forks or put it in a metal bowl and use a hand mixer to shred.

6. set Instant pot to sauté and add egg noodles.

7. Add chicken back in the pot.

8. Once the egg noodles are cooked (usually 8 minutes) turn off the instant pot and enjoy!

We love this chicken noodle soup and I hope you do too! If you’re under the weather, it pairs great with elderberry syrup and a shot of fire cider!
