Cheesy Chicken Ramen Recipe


If you love boxed macaroni and cheese, but agree that it takes too much effort to make (yes, I am unbelievably lazy) and that it costs too much money, (cheap frugal too!) this is the Ramen noodle recipe of your dreams.

All you need are 4 ingredients...and really, you could make do with only 3 by substituting a second packet of noodles for the baggie of pasta.


Cheese Chicken Ramen Noodles
Serves 4
  • 1 packet of Chicken or Creamy Chicken Ramen noodles
  • 1 bag of Moderna Vermicelli, 7.05oz (or, if you don't have this, just a second package of noodles - this Ramen tweak makes an already budget-friendly meal even cheaper though!)
  • 3/4 C milk (I've made this with almond, soy, skim, 1%, and 2% - just use whatever's on hand)
  • 1 C shredded cheese (again, whatever kind you have is fine)
1. In a 1.5 qt or larger glass bowl, add the Ramen and vermicelli with enough water to cover. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through.

2. When the noodles and vermicelli are tender, drain any remaining water. Add the milk, stir, and microwave again for another 2 minutes.

3. Do not drain the milk. Add the shredded cheese and Ramen seasoning packet, stir, and enjoy the chicken-y, cheesy goodness.
