Fast chicken soup in the weight cooker! Exemplary formula with entire chicken (or chicken pieces), carrots, onions, and celery. Prepared in an hour.

The moment anyone in my home contracts the smallest wheeze, I race to the store for elements for chicken soup. It’s the go-to fix all around here!

The formula I make is exemplary and straightforward, however to prepare it much more rapidly, I make it in the weight cooker.

Weight cooking in the Instant Pot (or any electric weight cooker) diminishes the cooking time a considerable lot. Utilizing an electric one additionally permits you to leave the pot unattended while it cooks. The cooker will even change to a “Keep Warm” setting once cooking has completed so you don’t need to stress over killing the cooker immediately when the soup is finished.

Simply toss all the fixings in the pot, press a catch, and return to quite hot soup later on!

I utilize an entire chicken for my soup for a couple of reasons: First, It’s the most efficient approach. Second, I like having a blend of white and dull meat. Furthermore, third, the entirety of the bones and ligament help to make a rich, feeding stock. 

You can likewise utilize any blend of bone-in drumsticks, thighs, or bosom meat. Eliminate the skin on the off chance that you like, yet I like a tad of delivered chicken fat in my soup!

You’ll require a 6-quart or bigger weight cooker for this formula. The pot ought to be sufficiently large to fit a 3-to 4-pound chicken. On the off chance that you have a bigger weight cooker (8-quart or greater), you can likewise pull off utilizing a marginally bigger chicken.

Be cautious while doing a speedy delivery since fluid weighty weight cooker plans like this soup can deliver a ton of steam during the venting venture in the wake of cooking.

On the off chance that you need to keep away from the fly of steam altogether, you can trust that the weight will deliver normally. Simply hold up until the weight cooker’s buoy valve has gotten back to its “down” position. This will take a long time, however, since this formula contains a great deal of fluid.

Great chicken soup made with the entire chicken will frequently build up a jam like consistency once chilled, so don’t be frightened if this transpires! The soup will turn around into fluid when warmed.

For an additionally filling dinner, you can mix some cooked noodles into the soup, or even make dumplings to cook on top. I like to cook the noodles independently with the goal that they don’t assimilate a huge amount of dampness from the soup itself. I blend them in not long before serving, and store them independently from the soup in the cooler.

To make chicken and dumplings, stir up an essential dumpling batter, spoon it over the completed soup, and lock the cover back on. Cook on “low weight” for 10 minutes (or 8 minutes for burner pressure cooker, or 20 minutes stewed over low warmth for burner).

Instructions to Make Chicken Soup in the Pressure Cooker Recipe

Burner Instructions: Put the chicken in an enormous soup pot or Dutch broiler, bosom side up. Include the remainder of the fixings to the pot, pouring in the water last to abstain from sprinkling. Spread the pot and spot it on the oven over medium warmth.

At the point when the soup reaches boiling point, turn it down to low and stew, secured, until the chicken is delicate and the meat is simply starting to leave away from the bones, around 1 hour and 15 minutes. Proceed with the rest of the means as portrayed in the formula underneath.


1 3-to 4-pound chicken, or a proportional blend of bone-in thighs, legs, or bosom meat

4 ribs celery, cut

3 medium carrots, stripped and cut

1 medium parsnip, divided longwise and cut

1 medium yellow onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, crushed and stripped

2 quarts water

Unique Equipment:

6-quart electric or burner pressure cooker


1 Put the chicken in the pot of a weight cooker, bosom side up.

2 Layer the entirety of different fixings into the pot, pouring in the water last to abstain from sprinkling. Including four teaspoons of salt now will bring about an all around prepared soup stock. Utilize less salt or dispense with in the event that you’d prefer to make fundamental chicken stock to use for different purposes.

3 Cook the soup: Place the cover on the weight cooker. Ensure the weight controller is set to the “Fixing” position. Select the “Manual” program, at that point set the chance to 25 minutes at high weight. (Moment Pot clients can likewise choose the “Soup” program and follow a similar cooking time. For burner pressure cookers, cook at high weight for 22 minutes.)

It will take around 35 minutes for your constrain cooker to come up to weight, and afterward the genuine cooking will start. Complete time from the time you seal the weight cooker to the completed dish is around 60 minutes.

4 When the soup has completed the process of cooking, hold up around 15 minutes before “brisk” delivering the weight. This forestalls a great deal of hot stock letting out of the valve. Indeed, even so be cautious while delivering the steam!

You can likewise let the weight discharge normally, however this will take a long time. Hold up until the weight cooker’s buoy valve has gotten back to its “down” position before opening the weight cooker.

5 Prepare the chicken meat: Use a couple of utensils or an opened spoon to eliminate the chicken from the pot, and move it to a dish to cool until you can easily deal with it, around 20 minutes. It might fall to pieces as you are eliminating it from the pot, so go gradually and cautiously.

Remove the meat from the bones, and dispose of the bones, skin, and ligament. Cut or tear the meat into scaled down pieces.

Let any extra soup cool totally, at that point store in the cooler for as long as 5 days or freeze for as long as 3 months. The soup may gel as it cools; it will melt again when warmed.
