Simple student meals: chicken noodle ramen soup

By: Taylor Garrett


   To me, nothing is better in the colder months than a nice homemade bowl of soup. Something else I know that other college students love is ramen noodles! They are quick and easy to make, and best of all they cost little to nothing. Sometimes, though, the average bowl of ramen gets boring, which is what this recipe is for!

   This recipe for Chicken Noodle Ramen Soup is perfect for when the average ramen and seasoning packets get old. The best part is all the ingredients are up to you! You can use the normal chicken noodle soup ingredients listed below, or whatever you have that would taste good! 


• 1 chicken flavored pack of ramen

• 1 frozen chicken breast or tenderloin

• Chicken broth (can be substituted for water)

• Diced carrots and celery (a frozen bag of vegetables will work, too)

• Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions Checklist:

• Step 1: In a medium pan, on medium heat, cook one chicken breast or tenderloin from frozen, shredding as it cooks.

• Step 2: While chicken is cooking, dice carrots and celery (skip if using pre-diced frozen vegetables).

• Step 3: Once chicken is cooked and shredded, remove from pan and place on a separate plate for later.

*Tip: the following steps use chicken broth to add more flavor, but you can use water as well!

• Step 4: Add 1 cup chicken broth to the pan along with your chopped vegetables, cooking with a slow boil on medium until almost soft.

• Step 5: Once almost soft, add in one more cup of chicken broth and ramen noodles, and cook on medium until noodles are done

• Step 6: Add in shredded chicken and the ramen flavoring packet when noodles are soft

• Step 7: Add all contents of the pan into a larger bowl and enjoy!
