I don’t know about you but I think ramen gets a bad name.  I’m not talking about the fancy ramen you can get in restaurants; I’m talking about the bags of ramen you can get at the store for under fifty cents.

I’ve always loved a package of ramen in a pinch.  In addition to being cheap and filling it’s good!   I’m a huge noodle fan so it’s not surprising this is an easy to make meal that I enjoy on occasion.

So when I saw an easy weeknight meal for 2 that included ramen noodles I was sold before even looking at the other ingredients.  Ramen noodles mixed with veggies and chicken in a stir fry dish sounded good to me.

Ingredient:

  • ramen noodles
  • hot water
  • chicken
  • olive oil
  • bell pepper
  • broccoli
  • onion
  • garlic cloves
  • chicken broth
  • soy sauce
  • salt and pepper

To make the stir fry start by putting the ramen noodles in a bowl of hot water to soften them up.   Drain them and set aside.

Then heat a bit of oil in a skillet and cook the chicken until it is no longer pink.   Push the chicken to the sides of the pan and add in the bell pepper, onion, broccoli, and garlic.   Stir fry for several minutes.

Add in the chicken broth and soy sauce along with the drained noodles and toss gently.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

What do I do with the seasoning packet?

You can add a bit of it to the stir fry (I did!) or you can save it and use it to flavor a soup or broth at a later time.

Can I add other vegetables?

Yes!   You can use any of your favorite stir fry vegetables in this dish.  Some favorites in addition to the ones listed would be mushrooms, carrots, or zucchini.

Can I use beef or pork?

If you don’t want to use chicken you can use either beef or pork.   They will be cooked similarly to how you would cook the chicken . 

Can I double this recipe?

Yes!   If you want to make this for a family of 4 instead of just for two it’s easy to simply double the recipe.  Just keep in mind the noodles take up a lot of room and you may need a large skillet.

This recipe has a lot of flavor and I love the combination of the chicken and vegetables with the ramen noodles.  While there isn’t anything to make the flavors in this recipe stand out it’s just really good.

Plus it’s ready in just 20 minutes which makes it perfect for a quick weeknight meal.  It’s also a recipe for 2 so it’s the perfect amount for my husband and I.  We’ll be making this one again soon.

Pro Tips and Substitutions:

  • This dish is easy to make ahead of time.  You can make everything except the noodles then refrigerate for up to 2 days.  Before serving heat everything, including the noodles, in a skillet for 3-5 minutes.
  • You can use beef, pork, or even shrimp in place of the chicken in this recipe.
  • If you don’t have ramen you can use thin spaghetti noodles or udon or soba noodles.

  1. When I have a busy weeknight I usually call for take out but making this is quicker than the delivery person can get to my house and this is WAY better!

  2. I’ve never had just the packaged noodles with their spices, but I have used the noodles from the package like this. It’s so convenient!
