Instant Pot Chicken and Vegetable Soup




Yield 6-8 Bowls

This soup is comforting, surprisingly flavorful, and bright due to the healthy squeeze of lemon juice.



  1. Add the first 7 ingredients to the instant pot (chicken included). HIGH Pressure 5 minutes. Manual release. The chicken wont be completely cooked yet.
  2. Fish out the herbs, whole garlic cloves, and onion (or you could leave it).
  3. Add the chopped veggies (EXCEPT the zucchini) and do HIGH pressure for 3 minutes with Manual release or use the SAUTE feature, lid off for 10 minutes. This insures the veggies don’t overcook and turn mushy. Season with salt and pepper. Add the fresh lemon juice.
  4. Remove chicken breast and shred with 2 forks. Add back to the soup.
  5. To serve, place zucchini ribbons or noodles in the bottom of a bowl. Ladle the soup over the top and garnish with a bunch of chopped parsley and an additional squeeze of lemon juice.


*optional; use cooked noodles if desired.
