I Love Mushrooms in my Chicken Noodle Soup!
The only thing is that I do add in a little bit of unexpected ingredient: mushrooms. I love those things. They add a nice texture to the soup while adding another layer of flavors to the broth. I also didn’t add onions to it for a true mirepoix effect. I just don’t care for it in my instant pot chicken noodle soup. But feel free to add in a 1/2 cup of sweet onions into the sauté portion of vegetables in the initial steps.
