Chicken Teriyaki Noodles

Ditch that seasoning packet from your instant ramen and use teriyaki sauce! This is very easy to make and the flavor is so much better! 

Chicken Teriyaki Noodles

How do you know if you are craving or just want to eat a specific food? As defined, we all know that a food craving is a powerful desire to eat a specific kind of food. I surely know how powerful that can be, but that one I felt was not that powerful. So… could I say that it was not a craving? How do you think of this?

I was typing my Facebook messenger password and I was notified that my password was incorrect. Guess what I typed – I typed ‘ramen’ twice. I was pissed when I can’t get my password correct and then I laughed at myself when I found out I was typing ‘ramen’. How in the world did I get that? Hmm, surely, ramen was on my mind during that time.

I wanted to eat ramen, but I didn’t want to include the seasoning packet. Also, I wanted to use the teriyaki sauce I made. I had leftover uncooked chicken breasts and some veggies that wanted to say goodbye to the world. So I ended up making this delicious Chicken Teriyaki Noodles.

The noodles was cooked and mixed to the cooked chicken and veggies. I used red, yellow and green bell peppers, brown mushrooms, onions and spring onions for this one, but you could use whatever veggies you fancy. I used the teriyaki sauce that I have made and it was fantastic! This can be easily put up together and a quick meal, too. What I love about ditching the seasoning packet and use your own sauce – you can control how much sauce you’d like to put. And you know me, I mostly put too much of everything! 😀

I am also sharing this delicious noodles at Fiesta Friday #176. Please link up your posts to me and the lovely Monika as we are co-hosting the party. Also, don’t forget to link it back to our amazing host, Angie. 😉

Another answer to a craving.

I think that’s always the start of my food posts, eh?

So I’ve been into Korean drama recently and I always see ramen in most of the episodes. Whenever I see the characters eating ramen, my craving becomes stronger and stronger. Well, you know how naughty I am when it comes to my eating habits… and I confess that I always keep instant/cup noodles with me. You know, anytime arrive at home starving, I can eat something. Instant fried noodles or noodle soup – I always have them. Don’t judge. 😀

While watching one of the Korean drama (it’s romantic, comedy, drama, action, actually) episodes, I suddenly remembered that I made stir-fried ramen noodles that I haven’t posted here. I even cannot remember the ingredients I used. To satisfy the craving, I went to my long lost friend, Pinterest, and searched for a ramen noodle soup. The first thing that made my tummy rumbled was this 20-Minute Spicy Sriracha Ramen Noodle Soup. I instantly made this with no hesitation.

I really loved how this turned out – spicy, delicious and filling. The process of making this – easy peasy. The poached egg just made my cooking life miserable. 😀 I think I took longer time in poaching eggs than making the ramen itself. Haha! I added squid balls because I love them in my soup, but that is completely optional.

I am taking this delicious soup to Fiesta Friday #157 to warm your cold days or to make your warm days warmer. 😛 This week’s FF party is co-hosted by Su and Andrea. Of course, thanks to you, Angie.
