FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What kind of ramen should I use?

You can use any kind of ramen that you like since you will be discarding the seasoning packages.

What can I do with the discarded ramen seasoning packages?

I know it seems like a waste to discard the packages but keep them on hand when you want to make some pasta at home. You can add the seasoning packages to cooked pasta and it will give the pasta flavor without having to create a sauce or use a jarred sauce.

Do I have to use frozen vegetables?

For this Chicken Pot Pie Ramen recipe frozen is recommended. I have not tried with fresh or canned vegetables as they are not the texture we are looking for. The frozen vegetables in this makes it go quickly as they cook fast with the heat. Frozen vegetables also have the same if not more nutrients than their fresh counterparts.

Do I have to use rotisserie chicken?

If you have all the ingredients at home, you can use pretty much any cooked and chopped chicken that you’d like. It does not have to be rotisserie chicken. I use it for the convenience!

Can I use ground beef instead of chicken?

Yes! You could really use any type of meat in this. Just make sure it is cooked before adding.

How do I store leftovers?

This will keep stored in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days in the refrigerator. You can reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop. I’m not a huge fan of freezing cream based sauces as they tend to separate when heating, but you can do it. Place cooled pasta in a freezer container or bag and it will keep in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. Let defrost in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat on the stove, stirring well to make sure that the sauce blends together.

    Just made this using leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Since my kids love ramen, this was a huge hit!!! It’s wonderful and very easy. Especially when you don’t feel like cooking after a long day. Thanks!

    This is just wonderful. I try not to alter recipes but because of high blood pressure, I used low sodium chicken broth and no salt cream of chicken soup. Then I salted to my taste. Additionally, I omitted the whipping cream…again because of blood pressure. The combination of flavors in this dish work so well together. I’ll be making this again and again.

    Hey Brandie, here in Ohio we call this a “Prison Break” since ramen is a commissary staple in the prison system. Btw, I haven’t been to prison, but I know people who have and taught me how to make a “Break”, lol. Looks good! I will have to try this one out. Always looking for new ways to spruce up ramen.

    1. I have a jailhouse cookbook written by a former inmate where he shares all the recipes he made as an inmate and his stories are mixed in there as well as his rehabilitation process. Most of the true jailhouse ramen recipes are absolutely disgusting but I guess if you’re desperate and you can only get your hands on a small amount of items, you make it work. One is ramen with hot water and BBQ potato chips. Another was ramen, a boiled egg, mayonnaise packets and a chopped pickle. They certainly are creative! LOL
