Desperation Chicken Dinner

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


3 servings

"This dish saves a lot of time when I need a quick supper on busy nights," explains Penny Mularz of Auburn, Michigan. "I keep cooked chicken in the freezer to speed up the preparation. Sometimes I substitute carrots for the frozen corn."


  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) chicken ramen noodles
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained


  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add noodles with contents of seasoning packets, chicken, peas and corn. Cook, uncovered, for 4-6 minutes or until vegetables and noodles are tender. Stir in the mushrooms; heat through.

    Have made this dish following recipe, above. Will try broccoli/carrots next time, since peas and corn have a lot of carbs.
