Random Ramen fact: A package of ramen noodles is equal to two servings. Now the question is who eats half a package of ramen noodles and feels full and satisfied? When I was in college I could eat 2 or 3 packages of ramen at a time before I was satisfied. Sometimes I wonder how I ever made it out of my twenties.
I still like ramen noodles However, I try to make them a little more substantial by adding some chicken and fresh or frozen vegetables. This recipe has a high salt content. If that is an issue for you feel free to use reduced sodium soy sauce and only part of the seasoning packet.
Ramen Chicken Dinner
1 package chicken flavored ramen noodles
1/2 cup frozen vegetables
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup water stirring once
8 oz cooked chicken, cut into strips
2 TBS soy sauce
2 TBS canola oil
1/4 – 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
Set aside the seasoning packet from the noodles. In a two quart microwave safe dish, combine the noodles, vegetables and water. Cook in the microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until the vegetables and noodles are tender; stirring once. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, canola oil and the contents of the seasoning packet, mix well. Stir the sauce into the noodle and vegetable mixture. Serve immediately.
