Ramen Chicken Dinner Recipe

I like to serve this microwaved meal with egg rolls and fortune cookies for a fun, Asian-themed "easy cooking night." —Judy Wilken, Ham Lake, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) chicken ramen noodles
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen California-blend vegetables, thawed
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions

  • 1. Set aside seasoning packet from the noodles. In a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish, combine the noodles, frozen vegetables, celery, peas and water. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until noodles and vegetables are tender, stirring once.

  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, contents of seasoning packet, sugar and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken mixture. Microwave, uncovered, on high 45 seconds longer or until heated through. Yield: 2 servings.
