Kicked Up Ramen Noodles-Kung Pao Style

Who doesn't love Ramen noodles? It's so easy and quick and I'm sure it's a staple for anyone with kids. I love this dish because it's packed with tons of flavor without the high sodium flavor packets. I also think Ramen tastes so much better when you add chicken and vegetables. This is also super easy to make!

Kicked Up Ramen Noodles-Kung Pao Style
3 Tbsp canola oil, divided
1 1/2 lb chicken breasts, cubed
1 bell pepper, sliced thin
1/2 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
4 cups chicken broth
5 pkg ramen noodles, seasoning packets discarded
2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
4 green onions, sliced

In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp of the canola oil until hot and rippling. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook until chicken is cooked through. Remove from skillet. Add remaining oil to the skillet until hot. Add bell pepper and peanuts and cook until peppers are softened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove and add to the chicken, leaving the oil in the skillet. Add garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper to the skillet. Cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in chicken broth. Break ramen noodles into small chunks and add to the skillet. Bring to a simmer and cook, tossing with tongs, until ramen is tender but liquid is still in the pan, about 2-4 minutes. Stir in hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in chicken, peppers, and peanuts. Sprinkle with green onions.
