  • 2 cups cooked, diced chicken breast (such as from a store-bought rotisserie chicken) (or, you can brown raw chicken in a skillet, so see notes below for that option)
  • 3 (3 ounce) packages chicken flavored ramen noodles (I used Maruchan brand)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce (this makes the noodles a little bit spicy, so you can omit it if you're serving to young children)
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped peanuts
For the Chicken:
  1. If you prefer to cook your own chicken rather than purchasing store-bought cooked rotisserie chicken, start by heating 2 teaspoons of canola oil (or other mild oil) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 lb. raw, diced chicken breast and cook, stirring regularly, until browned and cooked through. Remove from heat.

For the Sauce:
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, peanut butter, and Sriracha chili sauce until smooth. I like to microwave the mixture for about 20-30 seconds before whisking, just until the peanut butter starts to melt, which helps the ingredients come together smoothly. The sauce will be thick, which is fine -- you will be adding cooking water to thin the mixture later. Set aside.

For the Noodles:
  1. Bring about 6 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Add 3 seasoning packets from the ramen noodle packages, as well as the ramen noodles. Boil noodles with the seasoning until noodles are tender (about 3 minutes), stirring occasionally. Remove noodles to a large bowl, and be sure to reserve the cooking liquid.

  2. While noodles are still hot, stir in cooked chicken and peanut sauce. Add cooking water, a couple of tablespoons at a time, to thin the sauce, until it reaches the desired consistency.

  3. Garnish with green onions and chopped peanuts. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Nutrition information includes chopped peanuts for garnish.


  • For a shortcut, buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and use the cooked meat right off the bird. You can skip the step of browning the chicken in a skillet!
  • Add veggies! You can stir broccoli, peas, mixed vegetables, or any of your favorite veggies right into the noodles!
  • Switch up the flavors! Instead of Chicken Ramen, make Shrimp Ramen Noodles by using Shrimp Flavor Ramen and adding cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp.
  • Do you have sesame oil in your pantry? Add 1-2 teaspoons of sesame oil to the peanut sauce. You'll have a rich, toasty Peanut Sesame Sauce that's to-die-for!
  • Like a sweet-and-salty peanut sauce? Add 1 tablespoon of honey to the mixture.
  • Omit the Sriracha hot chili sauce for a mild, kid-friendly ramen dish.
