Chicken Teriyaki Ramen
Ramen noodles have always been one of my favorites. Ever since I was a kid. I think back then though it was really the cup of noodles that wowed me when I was little. It really has not been that long since I actually had a cup of those chicken ramen noodles. To this day I think it is still tasty.
Chicken and Ramen Noodles
There is a reason that Ramen Noodles are so popular these days. The answer is simple, and it is because people LOVE noodles. The way that they can be prepared is limitless. You can pretty much throw in any ingredients you enjoy. These days I usually toss the seasoning packet and make my own sauce. It is easy to make a sauce for a ramen noodle dish. It can be as simple as some soy sauce, sesame oil, and a splash of rice vinegar and some hot pepper and generally, that is the making of a lot of Asian sauces.
I am sure if you live in or close to a bigger city like I do there are going to be a lot of places that serve ramen noodles. In my area of South Florida, there is a ton of places that are really just “Noodle Houses” serving all kinds. I have been to many of these. Some of them are very good.
After going to many of these places I had realized that it is not just the sauces or the broth that makes these places so much better. It is the noodles they have. The noodles have a better flavor and texture and chewiness that I totally love and crave. I since then have always been looking for better Ramen Noodles.
Well, the other day I had to go to the Asian market and get some staple ingredients that I use quite a bit. I happened to ask the lady behind the counter. What are good Ramen Noodles? She takes me to the noodle section of the store. This store has an ENTIRE AISLE of noodles and maybe 20 different flavors and a few brands of ramen. She pointed to a couple brands and said these were good. I picked out an assortment and checked out.
I am here to tell you there is a whole lot of difference in quality paying $1 for a pack of ramen noodles versus the type that we are all used to that come in a brick of 12 packs for $2. The flavor and texture is totally better. It is totally worth the effort to get better ramen. There is this brand I took a photo of below which is what I used to make this recipe and another brand that I also like. The good news is if you do not have an Asian market at the end of your block like I do you can order both brands off Amazon. I will link to both of them below in case you are interested in getting some. The 2 brands that I love are called Nongshim and Samyang.

How to Make Teriyaki Noodles with Ramen
There are just a few steps to making this Teriyaki Noodles Recipe. You can include any vegetables that you like as long as they have similar cooking times. In a pinch, I have even used frozen vegetables and they are good too. The same goes for the protein. In these recipes, I used roasted chicken that I had leftover, but you could just as well use Beef, Pork or Shrimp. If you are vegan you could also use Tofu.
