Recipe type: Snacks
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 4 Servings
  • Instant ramen noodles – 400 gms (4 single-serve packets)
  • Chicken breast – 300 gms, boneless & skinless, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Broccoli – 1 small head, cut into bite-sized florets
  • Mushrooms – 200 gms, cut into 1-cm thick slices
  • Red bell pepper – 1, large, cut into 1-inch strips
  • Canola or sunflower oil – 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Light soy sauce – 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  1. Soak the ramen noodles in salted boiling water for 6 to 8 minutes. Do not add the seasoning powder (tastemaker) which comes with the packet of ramen at this point. Drain the water from the noodles once they are softened and set aside.
  2. Wash and take the broccoli florets in a microwave safe bowl (preferably glass bowl) and add about a cup of water and quarter teaspoon of salt. Microwave the broccoli on high for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Then take them out, cover the bowl and let is sit on countertop for 10 minutes; the remaining steam will soften the broccoli. After about 10 to 15 minutes drain the water out from the broccoli and set them aside until needed.
  4. Heat about a tablespoon of oil in a wok and when the oil is hot, add the sliced mushrooms. Sauté the mushrooms for 10 minutes on medium heat until they turn golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Take them out on a plate and set aside.
  5. Heat the remaining oil in the wok and once the oil is hot add the garlic paste & chicken cubes to the wok. Fry the chicken on medium high heat for 10 minutes or until the chicken pieces are completely cooked through and turn golden brown.
  6. Next add the sautéed mushrooms, bell pepper strips & steamed broccoli and stir fry them quickly on high heat for 2 minutes.
  7. Now add the softened ramen, soy sauce and the seasoning powder which came with the instant noodles packet. Use all the packets of seasoning i.e. if you are using 4 packets of ramen, then add all 4 packets of seasonings.
  8. Stir everything well on high heat until all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Do a taste test at this point and add salt only if necessary.
  9. Your upgraded instant ramen noodles is ready to serve hot! Enjoy!
