I'm Grandma by the way. Did you ever notice how kids just love 2 minute noodles? I came up with this recipe that sneaks lots of goodies and deliciousness in with them and my grand kids just love it! Plus it's easy and one-pot! The ones who don't like mushrooms give them away to the ones who love them. My son and I always hope for leftovers we can eat the next day but it's yet to happen. They just keep coming back for more until it's all gone.

How To Make grandma's creamy chicken with noodles

  • 1
    Prepare all vegetables and place in a small bowl.
  • 2
    Pull the flesh off the chicken with your fingers, into strips, and place into another small bowl.
  • 3
    In a large frying pan add the oil, ginger and garlic and when hot add all the vegetables. Stir until they are softened (about 5 minutes).
  • 4
    Add lemon juice, mustard and parsley and stir through.
  • 5
    Add chicken stock and then 2 minute noodles (you can use one of the flavor sachets if your stock isn't strong enough). Then crumble the dried noodles into the pan. Stir through until all are softened, about 2 minutes.
  • 6
    Add the lite cream and the chicken pieces and adjust the liquid if needed (use a little more cream or milk or even hot water). When all is heated through, serve in soup bowls with a fork.
