"Did anyone notice the Sodium in this dish? It will surely kill you! Geesh! This was horrible. I should have known as as soon as I tasted it, it tasted like the dorm dishes I used to make in University."
"Microwaves vary in wattage so the times are always approximate inmy opinion. It takes six minutes to cook ramen noodles in mine. My DGS loved this even if he did pick out the broccoli. I did not add the red pepper flakes but would use them if I was fixing for adults."
"Very good except...the noodles did not get done!!???"
"I buy sodium free chicken instant broth & seasoning by Herb Ox. I use that in place of the seasoning pack in the ramen noodles."
"Ramen chicken dinner is VERY high in sodium. Cut this by adding just half of the seasoning packet."
