So I have this recipe book, "101 Things to Do with Ramen Noodles".
I have made two recipes, and both times I kind of went "meh".
Both times however, it was my fault.
The first attempt I forgot to add the cheese, which kinda makes an omelet an omelet.
The second recipe I decided to make it on whim, and while I had all of the ingredients, the chicken was so freezer burned it should have been thrown out, but oh no I was determined to make it right then and there. I also did not cut it up into small enough pieces, and as much as I seasoned the chicken, it just wasn't enough.
Ham and Cheese Noodle Omelet
What you need:
2 packs of Ramen Noodles, any flavor you want. I like beef.
2 tbl of butter
1 cup of chopped ham
1/2 cup of chopped onion
It called for 1/2 cup of chopped bell pepper, but I use the dried kind
1 cup of grated Swiss, but I HATE Swiss, so I intended to use Finely Shredded Sharp Cheddar
Cook the noodles with the seasoning packets, then drain.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat.
The recipe then called to add the eggs, then the remaining ingredients. The problem here for me is, the eggs only cook a few minutes, and that was not nearly enough time for the onions to cook down. I don't like crunchy onions. The next time I make it I will cook the onions for several minutes first.
After the eggs have cooked to the scrambled consistency you want, add the remaining ingredients until everything has warmed through, and then slowly add in the noodles and mix it all together.
Also, big thing, when you go to shake in the bell peppers, if you're lazy like me and go this route, do NOT accidentally shake in dried cilantro by mistake.
While I heart cilantro, it did not belong here.
Don't forget the cheese. I totally forgot the cheese.
Creamy Chicken and Broccoli
Again, don't use old icy chicken. This was even worse the second day.
Take 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut into small pieces. Diced would be lovely.
I cooked it for maybe 15 minutes on low on the grill to try and thaw it out so I could cut it into pieces.
Once I finally got it sliceable, I seasoned it.
Melt some butter, and brown the chicken.
I took a microwavable bag of veggies and cooked them according to the package.
Meanwhile, cook the amount of Ramen you want and save half of a packet of seasoning.
Chicken Ramen would be ideal here, but all I have is beef.
To the chicken, add a family-sized can of Cream of Mushroom, the nuked veggies, and the half pack of Ramen seasoning. I also added more of my own seasonings.
After everything is coated and all bubbly, I stirred it on medium heat until it was thickened.
I couldn't decide whether to mix the noodles in, or serve the chicken mixture. Next time, I will mix it together.
I realize that this should be under the "recipe" tab, but I have already written it, and if you ever use Weebly, you know that there is no mere copy and pasting, so I don't want to have to redo the 38 sections that this is in.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
