Chicken Ramen Stir Fry
Sunday, August 29, 2010
I'm attempting a new recipe tonight and thought I'd blog about it. So far my blogs have only been happening about once a week, but I'm trying to do better. I just haven't had anything worthwhile to say! :-)
So I'm hungry and need to eat dinner and I've been thinking about making my own concoction of ingredients I already have in the house. I have three packages of Oriental Ramen Noodles that I need to use up. Oh, what can I make with Ramen noodles that can still be considered low fat. Sure, I could eat the whole package, but BLAH!!! What's the fun in that? Wasted calories for sure!!
Here's what I came up with:
Ramen Noodles + Baked Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast + Shredded Carrot/Broccoli/Cabbage Slaw mixture + Seasoning = A Tasty Treat!
I'm going to stir fry all of this, add a little seasoning, and call it dinner. The oil might get me a little here, but I can use my butter spray and it will work pretty good I think maybe. Yep, I am fore going the egg rolls. How sad!! lol. I could really use some broccoli and other veggies to put in it, but I'm waiting til my aunt gets home so she can take me to the store.
I looked at the frozen Chinese food dinners in the freezer section today. Every time I would see the calories of the SMALL 1/2 cup servings, I would GASP! This one lady saw me and starting laughing!
Chinese food is my ultimate temptation. Well, that and Mexican. But, I can pretty much go light on the mexican. A couple tacos aren't that many calories. It's all the chips and salsa (or cheese dip) that get me there. I used to love cooking Chinese food. I have one friend who will ONLY eat my Chinese food. He can't eat restaurants because it upsets his stomach. I can't even tell you the pounds of chicken, egg roll wrappers, and veggies I used to buy when I lived in OKC. Sadly, I haven't made it in quite some time. It's just so much easier to GO OUT! And, so much higher in calories. At least I can kinda control that at home. It's still a temptation, though.
As is the commercial I saw today for the Never Ending Pasta Bowl at Olive Garden. Okay, ENOUGH!! I'm gonna make myself hungry!!
Thanks for letting me BLAB!!
