Broiled Chicken Breast a la Ramen



I could have just as easily called this Broiled Chicken Breast a la Mr. Noodle. It all depends on the type of flavor packets you have in your kitchen cupboard.

This is a cinch to make and a very easy way to build lots of flavor when broiling skinless chicken breast.

My guess is Ramen Noodle (or Mr. Noodle) flavor packets aren't exactly the healthiest choice but they do come in handy when you don't want to deal with combining different spices or your collection of herbs and spices is limited. I prepared this chicken in the toaster oven and served it with spring mixed greens and Queensland rice (a recipe I'll be sharing in the next newsletter) and it turned out to be a tasty mid-week dinner.

It's not fancy but it's fast and good! 

The drawback to this recipe is you're left with noodles without a flavor packet. One option is to use them in this broccoli salad or simply add them to leftover soup to make it extra noodly!

Broiled Chicken Breast a la Ramen
Time it Takes: 20 minutes
Makes: 2 Servings

1 tbsp flour
1 Ramen noodle or Mr. Noodle Oriental flavor packet
2 skinless (bone-in) chicken breast
1 tbsp butter (melted)
In a large tupperware container mix flour with the contents in the flavor packet. Add chicken to container and fasten lid tightly. Shake container to coat chicken with flour mixture.

Pre-heat broiler. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place both pieces of chicken on baking sheet (bone-side down) and brush each with equal amounts of melted butter.

Broil until chicken is golden brown on the outside and cooked through on the inside, about 10 to 12 minutes.

  1. Ah, I wish I had know about this recipe before I threw out my seasoning packets haha. I made ramen noodles the other day but put my own teriyaki sauce on them so I didn't use the packet--this would have been a great use for them though!

  2. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog Courtney. Maybe next time you have an unwanted seasoning packet you can give this a try.
