After going low carb I have to admit that ramen was one of the things I missed the most. And not even good ramen. I missed the crappy 4 for a $1 ones you can get!

In my defense, I never ate them plain, the way they were supposed to be eaten. I always added something to them, even if it was just a bit of sriracha.

So when I went low carb one of the first things I worked on was a chicken ramen recipe.

This was before all of the low carb noodles substitutes were out there so I just used my good ol’ pasta standby of zucchini noodles. I liked it, my husband liked it, and Mini Me liked it, so I was pretty happy with the recipe.

But my need to tinker with and add to things really got the best of me and I decided that recipe needed an update. Of that would give it a Thai inspired flair.

Thai flavors are some of my favorite because they combine umami, sweet, spicy, and sour together for one big mouth watering flavor bomb and this recipe has all of them.

This spicy chicken ramen recipe is perfect for people that love to meal prep and for people that don’t want to work too hard. It is super easy to make and the result is 4 days of lunches of light dinners.

Feel free to adjust the spice to meet your tastes, add different veggies if the ones I add aren’t your thing, use shredded pork or beef, depending on what you enjoy most.

The sky is really the limit on the ways you can make this spicy ramen recipe your own!

Do I have to add the chili garlic sauce in this Spicy Chicken Ramen Recipe?

No, if you would prefer to use something like sriracha, or another hot sauce you are familiar with, go for it. I was just sticking with the Thai inspired theme, plus we really love chili garlic sauce here.

If you keep it in the air tight mason jars it will be good for about 4 days.

Last thoughts about Spicy Chicken Ramen

I love this little area of my recipes and I really hope everyone reads this far because this is where I really get to gush on how much I love a recipe, or why I think you would love it.

But today I am leaving that up to my husband and my photographer.

My husbands reaction to me sending a jar of this with him to work for lunch was a total surprise.

He was very skeptical when I handed it to him as he was walking out the door. I got the “look” and the “What the heck is this?”. I explained what it was, and how to prepare it at lunchtime. He did not seem thrilled.

Fast forward to him coming home.

I did not have to ask if he liked it he came in the door raving about how good it was and how everyone at work wanted to know what it was and how to make it!

He went back to work the next day with my business cards so everyone would be able to look up the recipe when I posted it.

My photographer told me that this was new favorite recipe of mine. She said she shared it with her Mom, who loved it as well.

Sidenote – the bronze wear in the photos is her Mother’s from living in Thailand for a year in the 70’s.

Her Mom said that it tasted like authentic Thai and took her back to that year in Thailand!

It doesn’t get much better than that!

  1. I shared this on a Southwest Airlines employee group since flight crews are often stuck on the plane for many hours without a microwave and many hotels don’t supply them either. Crews love “coffee maker recipes” and are very interested in healthy and flavorful meals! Thanks and always looking forward to your recipes!!!
