Do we have any ramen lovers out there?

A lot of people enjoyed a good bowl of instant ramen in their college days. There is no need to be ashamed! I was right there with you in my young years. Today I am taking your favorite ramen noodles and creating an easy, healthy stir fry that your family will love. This Easy Chicken Ramen Noodle Stir Fry is so much better than take-out and you get to control what you put in it. 

When I create a stir fry I like to open up my fridge and see what vegetables I need to use up. I almost always have a bell pepper to use and some extra raw broccoli. For today’s Easy Chicken Ramen Noodle Stir Fry I used chicken, broccoli, bell peppers, carrots and spinach along with ramen noodles and an easy Asian inspired sauce. This dish is very flavorful and also really easy to customize to your liking.

This past week in Cleveland it got as cold as negative 23 degrees with windchill. I know that some of you live in places that were actually colder than that. I don’t know about you, but when it is this cold out I crave comforting foods like big bowls of soup along with flavorful Asian dishes, like today’s stir fry. 

Since it is way too cold for take-out, I encourage you guys to try making your favorite Asian inspired dishes at home. A lot of them are easier to make than you think. You can also spice up the dishes to your liking. I make this Chicken Ramen Stir Fry without spice for my kids and then I like to add some Sriracha and crushed red pepper to my bowl when I am ready to eat it.

HOW DO I BUILD A STIR FRY?

Lets talk about how to build a deliciously healthy stir fry. They don’t have to use meat and you can add protein in other ways like tofu or beans.  Here are some ideas:

  1. Start with your protein of choice. I like to use lean chicken but you can use steak, pork, seafood or go meatless and use tofu or beans. 

  2. If you want to use beans try adding chickpeas or white beans in. 

  3. The vegetables are always my favorite part of a stir fry. Some veggies I love using is zucchini, carrots, green beans, bell peppers, snow peas, mushrooms, broccoli, peas, celery and greens. 

  4. Speaking of greens, they make a nice addition to stir frys and add nutritional benefits. I like spinach, swiss chard, bok choy or kale. 

  5. Fresh herbs are your friends in stir frys. If you have parsley, cilantro, green onions, basil or chives throw them in. 

  6. The noodles are always a nice addition to stir fry dishes. In this dish I use ramen noodles. My favorite noodles are Lotus Ramen Noodles which I buy in bulk at Costco. You can use whatever you like. You can also use any noodle of your choice. Spaghetti noodles, white rice noodles or linguine work nicely. 

  7. If you are watching your carbs try substituting zucchini or another vegetable noodle in place of the pasta or ramen.

IS STIR FRY GOOD FOR YOU?

Yes, they can be! First of all, if it means you don’t get take-out and make your food at home that’s a huge plus. You control what goes in to your meal, which is a bonus. You are eating a rainbow of vegetables in this dish which helps you reach your daily intake of vegetables. In my opinion, you can never have enough. 

If you want to make this even healthier look for whole wheat or whole grain version of the noodles or use spiralized vegetable noodles in the place of pasta or ramen. You can also swap the oils {I used vegetable and sesame oil for added fats and flavor} with olive oil. Olive oil is one of the healthier oil options you can use!
