Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 packages chicken flavored ramen noodles (including seasoning)
  • 1 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce (I used low sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • thinly sliced green onions

Instructions

  • Drizzle your skillet (see note) with oil. Saute chicken until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • Place ramen noodles in the bottom of the skillet. Sprinkle seasoning packets over the noodles, then add peppers and onions to the skillet. Pour 1 1/4 cups of water into the skillet. Cover and cook over medium-high heat for 5-8 minutes until noodles are soft and liquid is absorbed.
  • Whisk together remaining 1/4 cup water, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and garlic and add to the skillet along with the cooked chicken and the cashews. Stir to combine. 
  • Allow to cook for 3-5 minutes until cashews start to become tender. Top with green onions, cracked black pepper (optional) and serve hot.

Notes

You will need a pot or a skillet/pan that is at least 3 inches deep for this recipe.
