Bone Broth Chicken Soup
Stove Top Instructions
- Heat olive oil over medium heat then add in carrots and celery. Saute until softening and slightly translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Add broth and allow soup to come to a boil then reduce heat and simmer on medium low for about 15 minutes.
- Add in noodles and cook for 10 minutes or until the noodles are al dente. Stir in shredded chicken and heat until warmed through.
- Top with chopped parsley and season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve hot.
Instant Pot Directions
- Set Instant Pot to saute mode and heat up olive oil. Saute veggies for about 7-8 minutes. Add in UNCOOKED chicken.
- Add bone broth. Cook in Instant Pot on Manual mode for 8-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
- Allow Instant Pot to release naturally if possible. You can also use the quick release if you're short on time. Remove chicken to a side dish and shred. Return chicken to pot and mix.
- Turn Instant Pot to saute mode and add noodles. Let noodles cook on saute mode for an additional 7-8 minutes or until desired firmness.
- Storage: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
- Make Ahead: Bone broth chicken soup may be made ahead and reheated. Note that the noodles will soak up broth so you may need to add additional broth upon reheating.
- Reheating: Reheat on the stovetop on in the microwave until heated through.
- Freezing: Allow soup to cool and then store in freezer-safe bags in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Keto or paleo version: omit egg noodles.
