I love Thai sauces so this hit the spot. I did make chicken strips to coat the chicken better. Did use bean sprouts, but did add broccoli because family requested. They want me to add mushrooms next time. I did have to double the sauce as family likes saucy and not dry foods. To cut down on some of the sodium, I use low sodium soy sauce.

I have made this recipe several times. excellent. I only use at most half of 1 ramen seasoning packet and omit the bean sprouts. Also I cube the chicken before I coat and cook it, then add to the noodles after there coated in the sauce so that it's all mixed together.

ALSO, used sesame oil instead of olive, tossed in sesame seeds with noodles and did not use bean sprouts.

To tone down the saltiness I anticipated from the soy sauce and seasoning, I added 1/4 cup half and half to the sauce and it turned out delicious! I also used fresh bread crumbs instead of dry...they seemed to absorb the ramen seasoning better and gave a beautiful, textured crust to the chicken. I also dipped the chicken in butter before tossing it in the bread crumbs. I added scallions to the noodles for a tangy bite and color. My husband and I both really liked this dish...a great way to use up chicken and ramen noodles!

I agree that the peanut butter was too much for the sauce. I didn't bread the chicken ... just S&P and sauteed it. My noodle sauce turned out too dry, so I would have added some chicken broth or water to it.

the sauce came out kind of strong, so id just do a little less peanut butter and maybe a little less brown sugar. I only used one packet of the ramen seasoning and I subbed panko bread crumbs,chicken was great!

i really liked the noodle part, it had a very differen taste to it that i hadnt tried before. i would make the noodles again. but i agree with most of the people here, that the ramen flavoring was too salty. i need to find somthing to subsitute it with... because so much salt is just gross. >_<

3 out of 4 people loved this recipe in my house.I told my daughter there was p.b. in the noodles as she was eating it and that's when she said yuck. I shouldn't of said anything! It reminds me of Thai food. Next time I make it I will NOT season the chicken with the ramen seasonings (but with my own seasonings) Too salty when mixed with the soy sauce in the noodles. My ring got stuck on my finger and that's not a good thing! :)

Chicken was too salty from the noodle seasoning and the noodles tasted too much like peanut butter. I used chunky peanut butter and the peanuts were nice texture but I'm not sure I'll even eat the left overs.
