Ramen Chicken Dinner

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

    Simple, cheap, and delicious. The whole family loved it. That's the kind of recipes I love for busy weeknights.

    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.

    I buy sodium free chicken instant broth & seasoning by Herb Ox. I use that in place of the seasoning pack in the ramen noodles.
