Thoughts
We thought this was very good. I decided to use rotisserie chicken instead of breasts. When I tasted it before serving it, it was a bit bland so I stirred in the chicken flavor packets (I LOVE the flavor) from the Ramen noodles and let it cook a little longer. I also added and mixed in the cut up green onions instead of using them for garnish, and used matchstick carrots because I had some and they needed to be used.

So quick, easy, and good. I’ll be making it again.

  1. Holy cow, we made the exact same think in the RV last night! I didn’t have snap peas but we had peppers and loads of veggies, love that ramen!

    • LOL! That’s funny! I love ramen too and a lot of times I’ll just eat it like the package says. This was really good so I’ll be making it again only with different veggies, and more of them.

  2. Okay, I need to try this. I like ramen noodles, though I tend to throw out the flavor packs. *However,* I’ll keep your tip in mind — taste before deciding whether to use the flavor packets or not.

  3. Have never bought ramen! Does sound like a handy thing to have around. I will check them out next time, although I will need gluten free.

  4. Easy and delicious!

  5. This sounds like a perfect meal to prepare on our road trip in the RV next month. I actually have three packages of Ramen that are missing the flavor packets since I used those to make chicken broth before a medical procedure (for people of a certain age) and couldn’t have any food the day before. Thanks for the recipe!

    • You’re welcome Les! I’ve been trying to talk my grown kids/grandkids into taking a road trip in an RV but no luck so far. They are a bunch of Fuddy Duddy’s!

  6. You had me at the ramen noodles. Sounds really delicious.

  7. Sounds really good!

  8. I second what Shari said.

  9. This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  10. I miss really good ramen. With my gluten allergies I can’t enjoy it anymore. I can sometimes make something similar with rice noodles but the texture is all wrong.

    As usual your meals look pretty tasty!

    • Sorry you can’t eat Ramen any more! I don’t eat it as often as I used to but I keep some on hand in case I get a craving for it, or find a recipe that uses it like this one did.

  11. I have never tried to make proprer ramen. other than just pouring boiling water over them, and I haven’t had one of those for years
