Tuesday Treats: Asian Chicken ‘N Noodles

Sometimes, I don’t have time. Sometimes, not only do I not have time, I don’t have the energy, wherewithal, or motivation to either go out, go grab fast food, or put together a “real” meal. And frozen dinners are not my favorite. I am a fan of noodles though. I also like chicken, onions, and a modicum of veggies. When I tumbled across this recipe, I snagged it because…reasons! Like it’s easy peasy. It’s fast. It’s yummy. And I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

Prep Time: 15 min.
Total Time: 15 min.
Servings: 2 servings

Ramen noodle soup mix adds instant Asian-style appeal to this 15-minute chicken and noodles dish.

What You Need
1-1/2 cups water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) chicken flavor ramen noodle soup mix, divided
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 pkg. (6 oz.) OSCAR MAYER CARVING BOARD Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Strips
1 green onion, sliced

Make It
Bring water to boil in medium saucepan. Add Noodles and carrots; stir. Cook 3 min.

Add chicken and 1 tsp. Seasoning (from ramen soup package); mix well. Cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Discard remaining seasoning.

Sprinkle with onions.

I would probably double the ramen noodles, might add a handful of frozen peas to go with the carrots–and FYI, I use shredded carrots that I buy packaged, and I might just add a little teriyaki marinade. This is a great meal for one or two when you’re in a hurry and want something relatively homemade. 😉 This is very much in Hannah’s wheelhouse, though she informs me that she IS, with help from Jacey, Annie, and Izzy, learning to to actually cook real food. I know Hannah is a favorite character for many of you. Me, too! If you haven’t read the beginning of her story, you can get a head start with MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS.

  1. Bingo! I’ve done this one many many times, with a few variations. I use a frozen bag of mixed Oriental veggies, stir fry them in a pan until they’re fork tender. Add seasoning packet to taste. Drain noodles and throw them in. Throw in diced chicken. Voila! OR, browned burger and onions with Beef Ramen noodles. Mushrooms… Pork… Turkey… Whatever’s on hand. =o)
