1 lb. raw boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper
6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. ground thyme
2 bay leaves
10 oz. (about 2 small) zucchini
Optional seasonings: additional salt and black pepper
Place chicken in the Instant Pot, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add all remaining ingredients except zucchini.
Seal with lid. Manual/Pressure Cook, and set for 8 minutes. (The Instant Pot will preheat for 20 – 25 minutes.)
Meanwhile, using a spiral vegetable slicer, cut zucchini into spaghetti-like noodles. (If you don’t have a spiral veggie slicer, peel zucchini into super-thin strips, rotating the zucchini after each strip.) Roughly chop for shorter noodles.
Press Keep Warm/Cancel. Caution: During the next step, keep hands and face away from opening; the fast-escaping steam will be hot!
Vent to release steam.
Remove and discard bay leaves. Transfer chicken to a large bowl. Shred with two forks.
Add zucchini noodles and shredded chicken to the Instant Pot. Re-cover and let sit for 8 minutes, or until noodles have slightly softened.
