We pretty much always have ramen noodles because my kids love them. I can’t really say I’m a fan of the seasoning packet but I do love the noodles.
Actually I’m a fan of any kind of noodles. 🙂
I love coming up with recipes using the ramen noodles. For one thing they’re very inexpensive – about $.25 a pack.
Chicken Teriyaki Ramen is a great recipe for leftover chicken or you can buy a rotisserie chicken from the store.
Here’s what you need to make Chicken Teriyaki Ramen:
- Cooked chicken
- Ramen noodles (1 pack)
- Reduced sodium soy sauce
- Rice vinegar
- Brown Sugar
Making this dish is very easy. I started by spraying a pan with olive oil spray and adding the garlic. Let that cook for about 30 seconds.
Next I added the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, brown sugar and ginger.
In a small bowl I mixed together the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water, stirred it together then added it to the pan.
Make sure to stir the sauce to mix in the cornstarch then add the chicken.
I broke the ramen noodles in half (so the block was thinner) and added it to the pan. Cover the pan with a lid and cook on low for 10 minutes, or until the noodles are done cooking.
The noodles will absorb some of the liquid so I added 1/4 cup of water before adding the broccoli.
Stir in the broccoli and serve. It’s an easy 20 minute meal!
