4-Ingredient Peanut Chicken Ramen  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

Ramen noodles make me a cheerleader. No, I'm not even kidding.

I wrote you a cheer. It goes like this:

1, 2, 3, 4! It's you who I'm here for!
4, 3, 2, 1! Might have been "whom" but I care none!
(and then the breakdown)
1 is for shredded chicken! How simple was that!
2 is for the peanut butter! Smack, smack, smack!
3 is for the soy sauce! Getting her done!
4 is for the ramen noodles! You basically just won!

That was the most horrible cheer ever ever ever. I can guarantee this ramen dish is mucho bettra. Let's make it!


Ingredients for Peanut Chicken Ramen recipe.

Grab a couple chicken flavored ramen noodle packets. Just like in college! Also, grab some shredded chicken, some peanut butter, and soy sauce.


Mix soy sauce and peanut butter.

While you bring a pot of water to a boil, go ahead and mix the soy sauce with the peanut butter. I used crunchy, but you're more than welcome to use whatever makes your soul fly like a baby eagle. Add a smidge of water if it needs thinning. Like my hair. (omg sorry)


Peanut butter and soy sauce mixed.

Post-whisk! Aren't you so glad I showed you how to whisk something?


Mix noodles with sauce.

Of course once your water boils you'll toss the ramen and the little seasoning packets in, and cook them for the 5 seconds it takes. Then drain all but a little bit of the pasta water. Add the chicken and peanut butter mixture. Toss it all together and if it needs more thinning, go ahead and stir a little saved pasta water in there. Totally optional here, but feel free to toss in some scallions for something green and gorgeous in it!
