  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 32 ounces reduced sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 8 ounces whole wheat rotini pasta, uncooked
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, all meat removed
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Add everything to the instant pot, close the lid. Select manual or high pressure, and add 7 minutes. Press start or manual again to begin.

  2. It will take about 15 mins to come to pressure, then the time will begin counting down. Once the 7 mins is over, you can natural release (not do anything) for about 15 minutes, or you can quick release the pressure. If you quick release the pressure, move the release VERY slowly, and have a towel on hand for any soup splatter that may come out. Be very careful.

  3. Remove top, serve immediately!
