Ramen Chicken Dinner

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.

  1. you are right about ramen not filling you up, but adding chicken to your ramen really beefs it up. although i ended up throwing the seasoning packet away and using teriyaki sauce. i also tried peanut sauce.
