A good new recipe

Don't you love it when you find a recipe that utilizes things that you normally keep on hand and it turns out tasting really good? I ran across a recipe like that recently and it's going into the permanent file. I found this recipe on the Mennonite Girls Can Cook website. It uses cabbage, chicken, onions, and noodles. I used Ramen Noodles since that was what I had on hand. My kids always give me a hard time for changing recipes but I tried to stick pretty close to the original when making this. I cut down the proportions since it was just the two of us and added a dash of sesame oil at the end of the cooking time for a little burst of flavor.

Here's the post with the original recipe. I used one large chicken breast, about 4 cups of cabbage, and two packages of ramen noodles. I cooked the noodles and then added them on top of the other ingredients as the recipe details. It was really good and I will be making this one again.

    This recipe looks very tasty and one that I would like to try. I have a question: You used Ramem noodles, did you add the seasoning pack? Chicken flavor? Or can you purchase plain Ramen noodles?

    I think it’s funny that your children tease you about not following recipes. My husband insists that I CAN’T follow a recipe. 🙂 I learned to cook from my mom, who used recipes as general guidelines. I’m afraid I have followed in her footsteps. I find it consoling that you tend to work a little freely as well!

    Hi Deb H, I used just the ramen noodles–not the seasoning packets. I used chicken flavor. I had bought a big package of them and was glad to find another recipe that used some of them. Hope you will try it. We thought it was very good.
