As I was looking for recipes to make this week, I chanced upon a recipe using Ramen noodles. I have an 18-year-old in the house, so it's the law that I have a room dedicated to storing that particular commodity, but for some reason, I never found recipes that actually used the noodles and the seasoning mix. Until today. Oh my gosh. This looked yummy. Here it is...

  1. Put the Ramen noodles into a pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Drain well.
  2. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Over medium heat, add the Ramen noodles, vegetables and chicken or fish, if desired.
  3. Sprinkle one seasoning packet over the top of the mixture. Cook until the vegetables are warm through and the skillet is sizzling.
  4. Crack eggs over the noodle mixture and stir fry vigorously until egg is well cooked. Serve.
Quick, cheap, easy, and it looks tasty. Heeelllllooooo dinner. Also, it hits on all the food groups, so I don't have to deal with guilt. YAY.

I'm going to make this for Mom when I go to visit her this spring. She will LOOOOOVE this. Just for fun, I think we'll use chopsticks. It will make my mother cuss, which is funny as all get out. I'll repent later.

I went with another recipe.

Bow Tie Chicken: Tux Optional
2 cups bow tie pasta
1 cup pasta sauce
1/2 cup Hidden Valley® The Original Ranch® dressing, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 pound (or one large) boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Prep Time: 20 min.
Bake Time: 30 min.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 10-inch round casserole dish.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Stir sauce and 1/4 cup Ranch into pasta; set aside.

Heat olive oil in frying pan. Cook chicken over medium heat. Remove chicken; cut into small pieces. Return chicken to frying pan. Add peas, corn and Feta to frying pan; simmer for 5 minutes.

Scoop half the pasta mixture into casserole dish. Layer half the chicken mixture on top of the pasta. Repeat. Drizzle remaining Ranch and sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Bake for 30 minutes.

I actually ended up making 2. Can I bring some over tomorrow for Mae Mae and Jacob...or whomever else is cheating???? :)

My roasted chicken turned out to be a success tonight - all the lemon and garlic made a great flavor. I am very good, though, at de-boning a whole chicken.

Emmy Slusser said...

woops. .NOT very good at the de-boning a chicken.
