Notes

 
STORE: this soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The soup should be completely cool before you transfer it to the refrigerator.
 
CHICKEN BOUILLONS: Instead of mixing the chicken bouillons with the water you can use 8 cups of chicken stock.
 
CILANTRO: if you don't like cilantro, you can skip it to replace it with fresh parsley. 
 
PASTA: You can use any type of short pasta you like. I used Campanelle. 
 
HOW DO YOU DO QUICK RELEASE ON INSTANT POT?
Check your pressure cooker’s instruction manuals since different models may have different instructions. For my pressure cooker, once the cooking time is over, it will beep. Then it will start counting up on the keep warm mode.  If the recipe requests a quick release, press “Cancel” immediately after the pot beeps. Then CAREFULLY turn the vent valve to “Venting” to release the pressure. Then remove the lid.
 
CAN I MAKE THIS SOUP ON THE STOVE?
Yes, follow the same steps. You just need to adjust the cooking time (step 3) to make sure the chicken is cooked through.
