Ingredients

  • 3 ramen noodle packages (without flavor packages)
  • 2 strips chicken tenderloins
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • Half small white onion
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cup chicken broth or more if needed
  • vegetable or canola oil

Sauce

  • 1 1/2 tbsp sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • A dash white or black pepper

Instructions

  1. Prep ingredients - mince garlic, slice onions, slice chicken into thin strips.

  2. In a small bowl combine all the sauce ingredients. Mix well.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet under high heat. Once skillet is heated, add snow peas and stir fry for a minute or so until slightly softened. Remove and set aside.

  4. Add more vegetable oil to skillet if needed. Heat on high heat. Once skillet is heated, add sliced chicken. Once chicken is fully cooked, remove chicken and set aside. (See Note 1)

  5. Add more vegetable oil to skillet if needed. Heat on high heat. Once skillet is heated, add minced garlic and sliced onions. Once they are fragrant (do not brown or burn), add sauce and 1 1/2-2 cups of chicken broth.

  6. Bring to a boil then lower to medium high heat. Add three ramen noodle squares to skillet (they should be partially submerged in sauce). Ramen noodles will slowly soften. Use a spatula to gently press on noodle and submerge noodles into the sauce. Flip noodles over once they are slightly softened. Use spatula to separate them as soon as you are able to. Then coat all the noodles in sauce (I find that it is easier to do this using tongs).

  7. Noodles should soften and absorb most of the liquid, and still be slightly saucy. Once noodles are softened, lower to medium heat and add cooked snow peas, cooked chicken and shredded carrots back into the skillet. Toss and combine everything in sauce (use tongs). Add more chicken broth if noodles are too dry.

  8. Stir/cook for another minute or so. Remove from heat once everything is cooked.

  9. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Note 1: We are cooking snow peas and sliced chicken separately to ensure they are both perfectly cooked (not overcooked or undercooked). Shredded carrots will not be cooked until we combined everything at the end because it cooks very quickly and we don't want it to be soggy. If you are using a different vegetable, also cook them separately first unless they cook very quickly.
