Right now I’m thinking back to my college days when I didn’t cook a thing and wonder where this recipe was when I was having microwaved tortillas and jarred nacho cheese for dinner. Honest to goodness I ate that for dinner you guys. Numerous times.

And when it wasn’t that it was cold cereal (welllllll I still have that for dinner sometimes, but I’ve graduated from Lucky Charms to Special K so now it’s a grown up meal). It was a huge deal when my boyfriend-now-husband gifted me a rice steamer for my birthday and I started splurging for a bottle of Panda Express Mandarin Chicken sauce.

Okay my mother bought the sauce for me and I poured it straight over the rice, no chicken or veggies whatsoever. Just rice and sauce. WOW have we come a long way.

This ramen recipe would have saved my undergrad life. It doesn’t get easier than dumping a bunch of veggies and chicken in a pot with some ramen noodles. That’s all this requires of you. Whether you are the busiest person in the world or the laziest chef to ever consider cooking something that doesn’t come from the freezer section, you can handle this dish.

Possibly my favorite thing about this ramen noodle recipe though is that you can easily customize it to fit your taste. Use any veggies that sound good to you, or happen to be rolling around in the bottom of your refrigerator drawer. I used bell peppers, snow peas, mushrooms, and onions this time around but I’ve also used carrots, cauliflower, baby corn, sprouts, and broccoli and they all work great in this easy one pot chicken & veggie ramen recipe.

If you like a bit of heat, try using a couple teaspoons of sriracha sauce or some crushed red pepper flakes to spice things up. This one pot thirty minute meal is SO easy and SO delicious. Your Tuesday nights are about to get a whole lot easier and yummier!

I love this idea and am going to try the recipe right away!! Just wondering what temperature you set it to? I was thinking medium heat, but just didn’t see it anywhere!

Noodles, veggies and chicken all in one place…This looks like a perfect one pot meal for me during dinners …I would love to make it for dinner and serve this yummy dish for my family…Lovely recipe…

This looks great! What flavor ramen did seasoning pack did you use?

    Oh I’m so glad you asked, I’ll update the recipe – it’s chicken flavor 🙂

The recipe calls for ½ cup low sodium sauce. m I safe to assume that this is actually ½ cup low sodium soy sauce?

    Good question.

I can confirm that these are delicious. 😋 👍

Do you cook the chicken prior to putting it in with everything else?

    Never mind! I should really read through the instructions 🙂 Can’t wait to try it!

Hi I made my initial comment on December 5 still waiting for moderation. I was just wondering what temperature you set the stove top to?

Just made this for my entire family… we LOVED it! Everyone complimented how quick, easy, and delicious it was. Thanks for sharing! I will be taking this recipe back to college with me for sure 🙂

Tasted good just a little too sweet for my taste, will cut down on the brown sugar next time. I also used leftover rotisserie chicken that I stirred in at the end

Quick question – should I put it in a Dutch oven and bake it for 20-25 minutes or on the stovetop and boil for 20-25? Thanks! It looks yummy!!!

    Don’t use a Dutch oven! My husband liked it but it was too salty and sweet for me. And I love salt and sugar. It also had too much liquid which soaked into the noodles maybe try a veggie that would soak it up? I’ll make it again my husband is now stomping around saying he loves it 🙂

Maybe a stupid question, and I’ll just try it to see how it goes … but those ramen packs call for cooking for like 3 minutes. If you cook them for 20-25 minutes, won’t you end up with a big pile of mushy, soggy noodles? The recipe sounds great, however, so I’ll be trying it soon!

My question is the same as Tom’s. Are we to assume low sodium soy sauce when it calls for 1/2 cup sauce?

Hey Tiffany,

Could I use frozen veggies instead of fresh veggies here? How would that alter the cooking time? Thanks!

    Hi Grace! You can definitely use frozen veggies, it will require probably 5-10 minutes longer with frozen. 🙂

Just to clarify, do you cook the ramen separately or put it in the crock pot?

    You cook everything together at the same time. But make sure you use a regular cooking pot and not a crock pot. 🙂

1/2 cup low sodium sauce… that’s soy sauce right?

    Yes! Sorry for the typo, updating now!

Hi Tiffany, planning to make this tonight! What temp do I set the stove to?

I made it and it was very salty! Otherwise good. One half cup of soy sauce is a lot.

My fault! I used regular soy sauce!


This is quick and tasty! Try adding peanut butter for a pad thai-variation.

    Great thinking- thanks for your input! 🙂

Cook the ramen noodles for 20-25 min? Won’t thye turn to mush?

    They should be just fine you you follow the recipe as written 🙂
