What a yummy idea to ditch the seasoning packet in the ramen and make your own! I love the BBQ flavor in this! I will have to try this with one of the many packages of ramen I have in our pantry hehehehe
I don't understand the concept of ditching the chicken season packet if you are just going to add chicken stock. Same difference and pretty retarded .
Hi Tiffany, The flavor profile and the end taste was much more to our liking when made this way. Appreciate your honest feedback.
This was soo good! I replaced the chicken stock with vegetable broth!
Defiantly a quick university gourmet dinner!
Awesome!!! Glad you loved it:)
As someone who's not a great cook, this recipe is super encouraging. It tasted amazing for very little effort! Thank you!
Glad to hear, Maria
