However, if you want to add them in, you could do so by placing the Instant Pot on the saute mode after you remove your chicken to shred. Boil noodles for approximately 6-8 minutes or until tender.
Hint – you can also make your own homemade broth by adding chicken bones, vegetables, salt, pepper and a bay leaf to you Instant Pot.
Cover the bones and veggies with water and cook on manual pressure for 90 minutes. Strain and refrigerate or freeze broth until ready to use. That’s all there is to it! (See How To Make Stock in A Slow Cooker or Stovetop)
