Chicken Veggie Ramen Bowl

Happy Easter! I love Easter. It holds a special place in my heart and despite being exhausted, Easter-related adrenaline got me through the day. My joy mostly came from spending time with family and praising Jesus, but also from enjoying good food. Easter food is the best, isn't it? Deliciously salty ham, cheesy potatoes and asparagus....Mmmm! And on a completely different end of the food spectrum, Ramen noodles deserve an Mmmm! I have consumed approximately one million packages of Ramen in my lifetime. They never get old and are so dang good. Which is why I got excited about the idea of repurposing them. Ditch the sodium-packed seasoning packet and do your own thing with these unique and yummy noodles!

Be creative as you want to be with the veggies in this recipe. I loved the broccoli-mushroom combo, but carrots would be great, too. Or celery, cauliflower, peppers, zucchini or snap peas. I enjoyed this lunch for four consecutive days and it became more enjoyable each time. This will be a new lunch go-to!

Enjoy the remainder of your Easter, friends! I'm praying that you all enjoyed your day, as well. Thank you so much for reading. Have a wonderful week!
