Who needs takeout when you can create an Asian-inspired main dish at home in 15 minutes?
packages (3 oz each) Oriental-flavor ramen noodle soup mix
cup fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-size pieces
oz fresh snow pea pods, strings removed, cut in half crosswise (1/2 cup)
cup shredded or julienne-cut carrots
can (8 oz) sliced water chestnuts, drained
teaspoon sesame oil
cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-lb chicken)
medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
In 3-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling over medium-high heat. Add noodles (breaking apart if desired), spinach, pea pods, carrots and water chestnuts. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in seasoning packets from soup mixes, sesame oil, chicken and onions. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until chicken is hot.
Scatter chopped fresh basil, mint and/or cilantro over the soup just before serving for a fresh taste reminiscent of Vietnamese pho noodle bowls.
Look for stringless snow pea pods. If they are not available, peel the string from each pod before using.
