Instant pots make healthy cooking so much easier, getting your dinner on the table in a fraction of the time of stovetop cooking.
This soup is warming and nourishing like the classic chicken noodle soup but with the extra immune-boosting properties of homemade chicken broth and healing vegetables.
To make your own immune-boosting chicken broth from scratch, follow this recipe. If you are not into making your own, you can use a store-bought broth.
FYI, I do own two Instant Pots:
3-quart – for quick rice, oatmeal, and buckwheat
6-quart – for bone broths, soups, stews

- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup peeled and chopped carrot (around 3 carrots)
- 1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium onion)
- 1 cup chopped celery (about 2 stalks)
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed (about 6 ounces total)
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 8 cups Immune-Boosting Chicken Broth
- ¾ cup brown rice
- ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ cup chopped flat leaf parsley
- Set the Instant Pot to sauté. Add the oil along with the carrot, onion, and celery. Sauté, stirring often for 5 minutes.
- Add the chopped chicken breasts and cook for another 3 minutes. Turn off the sauté mode.
- Add the garlic, the chicken broth, brown rice, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to the Instant Pot. Lock the lid in place and make sure the valve is sealed.
- Set the Instant Pot to “Soup” mode or cook or pressure-cook for 30 minutes on high.
- After the soup is cooked, you can either let the pressure escape naturally or use the quick release.
- To serve, garnish each bowl with the chopped parsley.
