Ingredients

  • 10 green chilies, sliced thinly
  • ½ cup prepared sweet and sour sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, sliced thinly
  • ½ head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages instant ramen noodles
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Directions

  1. Mix the green chilies, sweet and sour sauce, water, soy sauce, sriracha, and garlic together in a large bowl. Add chicken and stir to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate chicken in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to 24 hours.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Prepare an ice bath (large bowl of ice-cold water) to have nearby.
  3. Blanch the carrots in boiling water for 30 seconds; remove carrots with a slotted spoon and plunge into the ice bath to stop cooking process. Blanch the broccoli in the water for 30 seconds to 1 minute; remove immediately to the ice bath. Once carrots and broccoli are completely cooled, drain.
  4. Bring a small pot of water to a boil; add ramen noodles and cook until al dente, about 90 seconds. Drain noodles.
  5. Heat a wok over high heat. Pour the chicken and marinade into the hot wok; cook, stirring constantly, until the chicken is browned completely, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken and sauce to a clean bowl and return wok to high heat.
  6. Heat vegetable oil in the wok. Stir onion, soy sauce, and garlic together with the hot oil; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add noodles to the onion mixture; cook while keeping noodles moving continually for 2 minutes. Return chicken and sauce to the work; stir. Add carrots and broccoli, stir, and sauté until hot, another 1 to 2 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

Snow peas would also be delicious in this recipe. Use them in addition to or as a replacement for either the broccoli or carrots. For vegetarian noodles, substitute cubed tofu for the chicken and marinate as directed.

Great dish to jazz up my package of ramen noodles! I added a little bit more sriracha for extra heat and some bok choy. Definitely a winner!

I love all the peppers and garlicky flavors in this dish! I added extra sriracha because I like to go crazy with it. This was super easy and a great way to put my ramen noodle package to use. Talk about college food elevated! Amazing.
