Pressure Cooker Chicken Soup with Whole Chicken Recipe

Pressure Cooker Chicken Soup with Whole Chicken

I woke up and I thought today is a good day. I got out of bed and I didn’t step on anything. I got in and out of the shower before anyone else was up. Then it happened.

Mom, I am sick. “SICK”, I thought. I do not have time for sick. I decided there is only one way to fight sickness and that is my grandmom’s chicken soup. I didn’t have a lot of time so I wondered Can you use a whole chicken in a pressure cooker for soup? 

We all know I love my Pressure Cooker XL  so I decided I was going to make chicken soup with a whole chicken in it.

This chicken soup is the best comfort food whenever you're feeling under the weather. Try my power pressure cooker chicken soup recipe with whole chicken.

This is how you make a chicken soup in a pressure cooker with the whole chicken. You get out your ingredients. These are mine.

  • 1 whole chicken around 6 lbs ( I have an 8 QT pressure cooker. You can do smaller I wouldn’t go much bigger you want enough space for the liquid)

Place a rack or a sling in the bottom of your pot.

Then place your chicken on the rack or sling breast facing up.

Next, add in our chopped onions, carrots, celery, and bay leaves. I eyeball the salt and pepper if you aren’t good at then wait until the soup is complete.

Then stand over your pot and look for the top line on your pressure cooker xl. You are going to fill your pot to meet that line with water.

You will push the soup button and then manually move your time to 50 minutes for a 6 lbs bird.

Then once the pressure cooker is done let it sit for 15 minutes before releasing the pressure using your mitts

Release the pressure cooker and place your meat thermometer in your chicken to make sure it is cooked 165 degrees.

Then you will remove the chicken using the sling handles and the mitts.

Put your chicken in the pan to begin to take off the chicken. You will want to cut it in pieces.

Then go through your broth and look for bones with a slotted spoon

Once you have made sure there aren’t any bones you can add your bite-size chicken back into your pressure cooker.

Now you can add your box of broth.

Finally, place the lid back on and leave it on warm until you are ready to eat.

If you're not feeling well my grandmom's chicken soup is the comfort food that you need. This instant pot pressure cooker chicken soup recipe with whole chicken is so easy to make and so delicious.

You can make pasta and add it in if you wish. We love our with noodles but my husband is gluten, dairy, and egg free so he doesn’t like noodles in his. I make them in the stove so I can freeze my soup. I find that freezing soups with noodles doesn’t taste as good. I just freeze the soup in freezer bags laying flat. Then when I am ready to eat it again I just make fresh pasta.
