To get back to Lugaro's topic - a thought...

Remember cup-o-noodles? Here's an experiment:

Place noodles in a soup bowl, boil water w the packet or chicken, beef or veg broth, pour over noodles & cover w a plate to cook thru. Add goodies of choice, i.e.:

tiny salad shrimp
green onions
peas & carrots
water chestnuts
shredded carrots

Personalize the dish & add shredded cooked chicken, beef, whatever you like.

I have used most of the flavors and they can make great recipes if mixed with the right things. Once I made some veggie eggrolls with white rice and the shrimp flavored noodles. Then I also made a soy sauce, wasabi, and chopped garlic sauce for dipping. My family loved it. So anyway, I love ramen because they can either be used as a side dish or be a part of the main meal. Try it out sometime, you might be surprised.
I've added egg rolls, won tons and sometimes fried rice, put soy sauce on the noodles (instead of the packet) and have a complete dinner/dish.

Ramen Noodles

You're all gonna hate this one! I use less water than what's called for - just enough to cover the noodles. When they are cooked, I add the seasoning packet & a good sized pat of butter & then let it sit until the butter is melted. Then I normally eat it right out of the pot.

Nope Corrine, don't hate it, I do the same thing when I'm alone and in a hurry. My grandson won't eat soupy soup but he gobbles up ramen this way...

Since I've never eaten ramen noodles, I decided to look for some recipes. Cooks.com has a very good sounding recipe for ramen noodle chicken salad. I don't know if I could post it here or not, but it comes up in a search. It looks tasty.

Thank you for confessing my sin! I've done it this way for years!

Of course now Gidgett is at my side - she loves to "slurp" the noodles while she's on her hind legs!

Here is a easy recipe using ramen noodles that is one of my favorites. It is so simple and easy with minimal ingredients. Perfect for a busy night.

Teriyaki Chicken with Spicy Noodles

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Teriyaki sauce
2 (3 oz.) pkg. oriental flavor ramen noodle soup mix
2 tbsp. water
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
2 carrots, thinly sliced diagonally
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Marinate chicken in Teriyaki sauce. Pan fry or grill chicken until cooked through. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, place 1 teaspoon seasoning from packet of 1 pkg. of ramen soup mix. Add water and crushed red pepper flakes, mix well. Set aside. Discard remaining seasoning and other seasoning packet. Place 6 cups of water in large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add noodles and carrots; boil 2-3 minutes or until noodles are tender. Drain and return to saucepan. Add seasoning mixture and green onions; toss gently. Place on serving platter. Sliced cooked chicken breasts diagonally and arrange over noodles.

Our family loves Ramen for a quick weekend lunch. I add soy sauce, chili sauce, garlic, pepper. And then any veggies that are around carrots, corn, onion, peas. As well as leftover meat or seafood. I love that I can put so much into it and make it healthier, at least for a three year old
