AN EASY CHICKEN & RAMEN NOODLE RECIPE
These are Ramen Noodles, AKA my college BFFs, but gourmet-tized. And if you’re new to Ramen Noodles Skillet, welcome to your new favorite din din!
Hi Hi Hello! How are YOU? How was your wonderful weekend? I ain’t gonna lie. I am still in a girl-gone-wild-wine-and-cheese-party-weekend coma. My God, what was I thinking?! It hurts!
Remember when we were 23 and could drink and eat all the things?? Then we’d go back for tequila shots!? Great times!
Did I tell you that I am only 25? Yep. That ain’t a lie, either.
One more truth; ramen noodles at 3 am in a dorm room? Best thing, everrrr!
But now that it’s Monday and we’re all grown up, ramen noodles in a skillet with chicken and veggies is the easiest dinner, everrrr. You just throw everything into one skillet and done. Who has time to boil pasta when there is reality TV trash to watch.
Who’s with me?!
A good week ago, I found myself standing in the kitchen, eating bread-crusts smothered with cream cheese and thinking about what to do with 4 pounds of snap peas I just bought because they were on sale. A quick scan of the pantry and fridge led me to boxes of ramen noodles, leftover rotisserie chicken, and carrots. My brain quickly went into foodie-mode, the lights lit up in my head, the disco balls turned, and my food-brain just got out of control. In a good way. Not in a she’s-lost-her-damn-mind! way.
But the thing is… since we are soul sisters and brothers. I know that some of you are really going to appreciate this one. Especially those that love their ramen. And those that love their super quick, but always delicious meals.
In all honesty, this dish kind of left us speechless. Not because we didn’t have anything to say – we ALWAYS talk – but because it was so darn good and no one wanted to come up for air.
Having said that, it would probably be a great idea for you to go and make this today. All we’re doing is sauteeing the veggies and chicken, adding the noodles with some broth, and voila. Done and done!
