Why You’ll Love This Recipe
There is a reason that Teriyaki 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 in ramen noodles that you enjoy. 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. Toss in some minced garlic and ginger for extra flavor.
What Are The Best Instant Ramen Noodles to Buy
My personal favorite is the Nongshim brand that is in the picture above. These are also dry noodles. The taste and texture are superior. Another brand of reman noodles that I love is Samyang.
These are MUCH better than Nissin Top Ramen. They come in a bunch of flavors. This one is spicy and not your general chicken flavor.
Teriyaki Ramen Noodle Substitutions
Zucchini Noodles – Also called “Zoodles” these are a fabulous low calorie replacement for noodles. You can boil them for 1 minute or just saute them until the texture is to your liking.
Yaki Soba Noodles – Yaki Soba noodles are a japenese buckwheat noodle that can be found in the refrigerator section. They are used in stir fry often. To cook boil in water 2 minutes and rinse.
Shirataki Noodles – These noodles are a good replacement if you are keto. They are light and have a great texture. Be sure to prepare them according to the package directions.
Japanese Glass Noodles – These noodles are delicious. They are made from sweet potato starch and they have a great texture and work well as a noodle replacement if you are looking to try something different. They turn clear when cooked.
This is where they get the name “glass noodles.” If you are boiling them 2-3 minutes should do it. I find soaking them in very hot water for 5 to 15 minutes is the easiest way to prepare them.

How to Make Teriyaki Noodles
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 protein. In these recipes, I add 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.

Step 1 Saute Garlic – In a large skillet or wok over medium high heat add Sesame Oil. Olive oil can be used also. Swirl to coat bottom. Saute garlic 2 minutes until fragrant.
Step 2 – Add Water or Broth to the pan. Instead of 2 cups water or broth I use just 1 cup. Bring to a Boil.
Step 3 – Add Ingredients for Sauce – Add Soy Sauce, Fish Sauce, Rice Vinegar and White Part of Chopped Scallions to pan and stir.
Step 4 – Add noodles to liquid. After a minute or so break up noodles with a spoon. Once noodles are broken up add cooked chicken and cook noodles 3-4 minutes. Generally, cook noodles according to package.
Step 5 – Thicken Sauce Mix cornstarch with water and then pour into pan. Let come to boil and cook one minute until sauce thickens.
Serve – Add to small bowl and top with the green onions and sesame seeds. A little soy sauce is good too.
How to Store Teriyaki Chicken Ramen
The noodles can be stored in a sealable plastic bag or container for up to 4 days.
Reheating Teriyaki Chicken Ramen
Of course you can use the microwave but I try to stay away from that method. I find reheating in a nonstick skillet over medium heat gets the job done well.
I place about 1 tablespoon of oil in the pan. When heated I put in the chicken ramen and heat until hot. Stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
