FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
You can use any kind of ramen that you like since you will be discarding the 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.
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.
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!
Yes! You could really use any type of meat in this. Just make sure it is cooked before adding.
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.
