Ramen Noodle Stir Fry (Cheap & Easy Dinners)

Yes this is a meal using Top Ramen. Another edition of Mrs. Scales CHEAP & EASY meals. :)   


1-2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
1 block of  ramen noodles
1 tsp Soy Sacue
1 tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 c frozen veggie mix
1 egg
1 tsp cooking oil (olive, sesame, vegatable)
seasoning salt, to taste
salt/pepper, to taste

First, cut up your boneless skinless chicken breast. 

On medium heat, put garlic and the tsp of oil in the frying pan or wok.

Toss your chicken in the pan with soy sauce, Worcestershire, frozen veggies, a couple dashes of seasoning salt.  Stir with wooden spoon.

While this is cooking and blending flavors, put a bowl of water in the microwave for 3 minutes.  When the 3 minutes is up you'll have boiling water, while still in the microwave add your block of noodles (break in half if you wish).  Turn microwave back on for another 2.5 min. This method makes the perfect consistency of noodles.. not soggy or puffy.

Back over to the pan - Once the veggies are almost cooked crack in the egg.  Stir again with wooden spoon or spatula to scramble the egg.

Back to the microwave - Your noodles should be done at this point.  Drain all the water from the bowl.  Use an oven mit, the bowl will be HOT.

Add the noodles and ramen seasoning packet to the pan/wok and stir it all up.  Add a little more oil if you need to and a little water (maybe a table spoon).

  1. Yum! Thanks! Hubby loved it and we will be making again! Perfect for us cheap college students!

    1. Great! Glad you liked it!! Cant beat it for the price and it packs flavor. :)

  2. Just tried this with ground beef because we didn't have chicken, and it was delicious! Also added diced onion and cooked with the beef. Will definitely be making this again!

  3. I tried the ground beef version a couple of weeks ago and really liked it so tonight I tried it with shrimp and it was really good!

  4. I use shrimp & love to add fresh celery and carrots for a little crunch, don't forget scallions. Kids love it, hubby thought it was gourmet when served with wine.
