Extreme Makeover: Ramen edition

Today we considered a spaghetti casserole for dinner but I just really wasn't feeling it. I remembered pinning but not clicking on some delish looking ramen recipes (check out my recipe pin board) but when I clicked I wasn't super excited with what I read. Also, I live in a small town and have an even smaller neighborhood grocery store that I visit regularly.  So since I didn't feel like making any special trips, I had to get a bit innovative.

I bought cocconut milk, peanut sauce, ramen noodles, some veggies (broccoli, red peppers and onions) and some chicken.

I boiled water (which takes forever at my home's elevation) and while that was going cooked the chicken (flavored some but not entirely with about 1/4 of the ramen flavor packet and tossed the rest). After the chicken was done I added onions and peppers. When they were finished I added cocconut milk (about 1/2 a can) and peanut sauce to taste. I got it all boiling and added the broccoli and let it simmer. When the broccoli was cooked I combined the veggies, chicken and sauce with the strained ramen.

The end result looked like this and tasted delish!!!
