Spring in the Northeast
When I have a taste for Chicken Noodle Soup my go to recipe is this quick and easy rotisserie chicken electric pressure cooker one. Even though it is starting to be spring where we live the weather can not let go of winter and we will have a few days that feel like fall. That is when I have the feeling for comfort food and I think Chicken Noodle Soup.
On my way home from work I go right past our brand new Costco store and they have the best and least expensive rotisserie chicken. I can’t stop at an upscale fast food and buy soup for the low price of a whole chicken. They are most and tender and fall apart perfectly for this quick soup.
Why an Electric Pressure Cooker/Instant Pot
If you do not have an Instant Pot or another brand of electric pressure cooker you need to look into them. The advantage is you get the slow cooked taste of a slow cooker or a simmering pot of all day soup, but in just minutes. After all of your food is chopped and ready to go you just set the timer for 6 minutes.
Now not to miss lead, it does take more than 6 minutes, ok maybe 10. If your chicken is warm right from the store like mine, the soup will be done in less than 10 minutes or by the time you put the cutting board in the dishwasher and wipe down the counter.
If you are using uncooked frozen chicken it will take 15 to 20 minutes for the pressure cooker to warm up to the pressure temperature of 250 f. If your chicken is cold from the refrigerator it may only take 10 minutes to get to pressure.
Whatever chicken you use you will be sitting bundled in a blanket eating your soup while watching your favorite movie in no time. This type of cooking is perfect for workings moms who come home from work exhausted and need comfort food without standing over a stove, or a stay at home working mom who has been on her feet running after little ones all day.
