Chicken Ramen Stir Fry

(Chef Savvy via Pinterest)
– 2 tablespoons oil, seperated
– 6 oz of ramen noodles (Instant Ramen packs, disregard flavor
– 2 cups broccoli (chopped)
– 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
– 4 cloves garlic, minced
– 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
– 1/4 cup water
– 1/4 cup honey
– 1 teaspoon sesame oil
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Sesame seeds for garnish, if desired
1) Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add in the broccoli and
sauté 1/4 until tender and caramelized, 4-5 minutes. Remove from the
pan and set aside.
2) Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the same pan. I cook my
chicken in two batches to ensure it gets crispy and caramelized on the
outside. Then, add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
3) While the chicken is cooking, boil the ramen noodles according to
the package (3 min). Drain and set aside in a separate bowl.
4) In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, water, honey and sesame oil.
5) Add the sauce into a large pan along with the broccoli, chicken, and
noodles. Simmer until the sauce has thickened, 1-2 minutes.
6) Season with salt and pepper, add cooked noodles to the pan and
7) Serve immediately with sesame seeds for garnish, if desired.
