Easy Chicken Ramen with Veggies

There is nothing better than a flavor bomb weeknight meal… easily cooked in under 30 minutes!

This saucy, melt-in-your-mouth pan of noodles has become one of my favorite new family meals. Surprisingly, it is even picky kid approved. Every bite is chock full of juicy chicken, tender veggies, and a rich, sweet and savory sauce that make those noodles extra slurpy!

You don’t have to use your noodle for this one – it is completely foolproof. The ingredients are fresh, budget-friendly, and easily available at most grocery stores. The end result of this easy meal is a flavor-packed bowlful of goodness that you will go to again and again. We are addicted to these noodle bowls – especially with a runny egg (optional, of course).

Let’s fire up your skillet and start cooking!

Ready to cook your own Chicken Ramen with Veggies?

• Unwrap ramen noodles and discard seasoning packet. In a medium pot set to high heat, boil 6 cups water. Stir in ramen noodles. Cook noodles for about 2 minutes, until still chewy. They will continue cooking in the sauce once combined. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water; set aside.

• Drizzle oil in a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add chopped chicken, carrots, bell pepper, broccoli and mushrooms. Sauté for 7-8 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked and veggies are tender. Remove from heat. Add ramen to skillet.

• In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and 2 Tbsp. water; set aside.

• In a small pot, whisk water, soy sauce, maple syrup, rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce and minced garlic together. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Stir in cornstarch-water mixture. Simmer and stir until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Mixture should coat the back of a spoon.

• Pour sauce over noodle mixture. Mix to coat everything evenly in the sauce.

• Set skillet to medium-high heat and cook mixture, until noodles are tender, about 3 minutes.

• Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped scallions, if desired.

• Serve hot and enjoy!
