  1. Bring a pan of water to a boil, and cook the ramen until tender, about 3 minutes. Plunge the noodles into cold water to stop the cooking, drain in a colander set in the sink, and drizzle the noodles with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Set aside.
  2. Place the chicken strips in a bowl, and toss with olive oil, garlic salt, and black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok over high heat, and cook and stir the chicken until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shallots and garlic, and cook and stir until they start to turn brown. Add the cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms, and cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the ramen noodles, soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, and oyster sauce, mixing the noodles and sauces into the vegetables and chicken. Bring the mixture to a simmer, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve hot.

I am indonesian, and this dish tastes really good and just like the original indonesian fried noodles. I left out salt since the sauce added the saltiness to the dish. I also reduced the amount of soy , oyster and Indonesian sweet soy sauce ( a little bit less than 1/4 cup each ). I will definitely put this on my regular menu list.

Followed the recipe except I used a two lb bag of fresh noodles from the Chinese grocery instead of 9 oz of ramen. The amount of soy saucy-ness was still a lot for a homestyle dish! It was about what you would expect in a restaurant. I also cooked the meat and the veggies separately so I could control how done everything got. Good dish, very easy to make especially with a food processor doing the chopping and shredding. Just cut back on the sauce or up the noodles. Would be fine with other meats or tofu instead of chicken.

Fantastic! I also used garlic powder in place of the garlic salt. Also doubled the cabbage & used a bag of stir-fry veggies. We all loved it!

This is an easy, yummy recipe. I didn't have shallots, broccoli, or mushrooms, so I used extra carrots and cabbage and added a bag of frozen stir-vegetables. I also left out the oyster sauce. I would definitely say that this recipe doesn't need any added salt, though. The soy sauce makes it plenty salty. This recipe is really easy and tastes great!

Awesome recipe! Thank you for posting it. I am a little sqeemish when it comes to fish sauces or oyster sauce, so as an FYI for anyone wondering what they could substitute the oyster sauce with: 1) Look for a vegetarian "oyster" sauce - not a single oyster in it, but still mocks the flavor of it 2) Do a mixture of one part hoisin, two parts teriyaki and 2-3 dashes of worchestire. Some garlic and onion wouldn't hurt either if you wish For this recipe the ratio for 1/4C (4 TBSP) would be: 3 TBSP Teriyaki, 1 TBSP Hoisin and 2-3 dashes of worchestire I have subbed both versions in this recipe with excellent results!

I would say 2 pkgs of noodles is plenty. Undercook them at first because you will be simmering them in the pan at the end. It was pretty good the first time around but I would definitely double the vegetables and make sure to cut the broccoli into smaller size florets so they're done at the same time as the rest of the vegetables.

This was good. I used lo mein noodles instead of Ramen because Ramen are fried. Otherwise followed recipe. We really enjoyed this. Thanks for the recipe

This was wonderful!! If I could rate it more than 5 stars, I would. I boiled chicken on the bone and then shredded it off. I did not use shallots, mushrooms, or sweet soy sauce (used regular) because I did not have these items. My 2 1/2 year old daughter kept on saying mmmm while eating this. This dish if the best!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
