Homemade Soup A Perfect Dinner
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 drive past a new Costco store that has the best and least expensive rotisserie chicken. If I stop at a fast-food shop and buy soup it would have cost a lot more than what I paid for for the low price of a whole chicken at Costco.
Their rotisserie chicken is moist and tender and falls apart perfectly for this quick soup. So many days I come home from work, I am hungry and I just want to spend time with my husband and kids. The last thing I want to do is stand in the kitchen making an hour-long healthy dinner. The Instant Pot electric pressure cooker has released so much stress in my evenings, as I can make a healthy dinner in half the time and let the Instant Pot do all the work.
Why an Electric Pressure Cooker/Instant Pot
If you do not have an Instant Pot I know you will love cooking this way once your start. . 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. Most of us have celery, carrots, and onion already in our house. With the Instant Pot, you could have these vegetables frozen in the freezer. The Instant Pot does not care if food is fresh or frozen. If your vegetables are frozen it will take the Instant Pot just a few minutes longer to get to pressure before it starts cooking for the 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 6 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 Instant Pot 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.
