  1. I just made this, it came out pretty well. A few things:

    1. Marinate the chicken as long as you can. 1 hour works, 12 hours is better.
    2. I put my two noodle bricks in (I used GreeNoodles instead of ramen myself), and decided I didn’t like the noodle:other ingredients ratio, so I put a third brick in and an extra splash of broth to compensate. This is a matter of personal preference, but I think three is just right.
    3. The prep work is kind of time consuming. Julienned onions are easy enough because they’re conveniently in layers already, but the carrots are a bit of work for someone who has no experience with that type of prep.
    4. Used a whole onion instead of a half and that was fine. Having the leftover half onion sitting around seemed dumb.

    Lastly, it’s asinine to whine about the fact that they use ramen. Chow mein isn’t even a proper traditional Chinese dish to begin with, it’s pretty Americanized, so let’s not act like it’s sacred. This is a cheap, simple way to make your lunches for the week that isn’t garbage. No one is forcing you to use ramen either, you can use whatever kind of noodles/pasta and adjust accordingly/pre-boil them (though that would ruin the one-pot aspect of this), keeping in mind that it’s only gonna have five minutes to cook once it’s in with the veggies.
