This must be the easiest recipe I’ve ever shared on the blog. So I’m thinking that it’s great for January when you can’t be bothered to cook a massive meal and just want to eat something warm, right? It’s my take on a Pot Noodle (my guilty pleasure) and it’s so simple the I barely spent any time in the kitchen making it. The result was a delicious, warming lunch that used up leftovers and filled me up. Hubby and I enjoyed this meal last weekend and I managed to snap a couple of photos just before we tucked in to this healthy snack. So here’s the simple recipe:Ingredients: 1 sheet of dried medium thickness noodles per person, a tablespoon of peas and a tablespoon of sweetcorn per person, half a chicken stock cube per person and a handful of shredded cooked chicken per person, Fry Light or similar low-calorie spray.
Spray a saucepan with cooking spray and fry the leftover chicken for a couple of minutes before adding the peas, sweetcorn and noodles. Pour in enough boiling water to cover the noodles and crumble in the stock cube, then leave to simmer for around 8 minutes, or as long as the noodles take to soften. Serve in massive mugs with a splash of soy to taste (just like the original Pot Noodles!).
To make this a vegetarian option, skip the chicken and perhaps fry some sliced button mushrooms instead? Add a vegetable stock cube to the water and you’re good to go!
Let me know if you try out the recipe and I’d love to see your cooking pic so please tweet me @Cassiefairy
