  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 4 ribs of celery, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 12 ounces egg noodles

  • In a medium bowl whisk flour into remaining 1 cup chicken broth. Stir in heavy cream. Pour into instant pot and stir in peas and noodles. 
  • Once soup is bubbling, cook for about 5 minutes longer or until noodles are tender. Taste, add salt and pepper as needed, garnish with fresh herbs if desired (such as thyme or parsley) and serve. 

Slow Cooker

  • Cover and cook on high for 2 hours (for thawed chicken, 3 for frozen) or low for 6-8 hours. Uncover and set to high (if it was on low). Shred chicken with two forks.
