Ingredients for Gluten Free Chicken Ramen Stir Fry

This recipe can absolutely be adapted to your personal preferences when it comes to the vegetables added or even the choice of meat. The meat can also be left out to make a vegan version of this recipe.

While this recipe calls for mostly simple ingredients that can be found at your local grocery store the one tricky ingredient to find may be the gluten-free noodles. For this recipe you will need:

  • sesame oil- olive oil or vegetable oil can be used if you have a sesame allergy.
  • onion
  • carrot
  • red bell pepper
  • broccoli
  • gluten-free ramen noodles- regular noodles are NOT gluten free so be sure to check the ingredients. I like to buy the Lotus Foods Rice Ramen. It can be purchased through Amazon, Thrive Market and Target.
  • ground chicken
  • coconut aminos, gluten free tamari or gluten-free soy sauce
  • cornstarch
  • chicken broth
  • rice vinegar
  • brown sugar
  • garlic
  • sesame seeds

How to Make Gluten Free Chicken Ramen Stir Fry

Step One: Make the sauce

To start, we’re going to make the sauce. In a small mixing bowl combine the coconut aminos, cornstarch, chicken broth, rice vinegar, brown sugar and garlic. Stir well to combine and set aside for later.

Step Two: Prepare the vegetables

Next, chop all of the vegetables: onion, carrots, red bell pepper and broccoli and set aside.

Step Three: Heat skillet and cook vegetables

Then, place a large skillet on the stove and heat to medium/ medium high. Once hot, add sesame oil and vegetables. Saute until tender, about 8 minutes.

Step Four: Cook ramen noodles

While vegetables are cooking bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook ramen noodles according to package directions. Once cooked until al dente remove from stove and drain. Set aside. Ramen noodles should still have a slightly chewy texture. If overcooked they will break up a lot once mixed with the vegetable mixture.

Step Five: Cook chicken

Then, once vegetables are cooked add ground chicken and cook thoroughly breaking up into small pieces. Once the meat is cooked through add the sauce mixture and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. About 5 minutes.

Step Six: Combine noodles, vegetables and sauce

Next, add the noodles to skillet and stir well to coat noodles in sauce. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top if desired and serve immediately.

Are there other ingredients I can add to this ramen recipe?

Absolutely! We added our favorite stir fry veggies but you can also try green onions, bean sprouts, bok choy, baby corn, peas, etc. Also, if you don’t like ground chicken try ground beef, crispy tofu, soft boiled eggs or leave out the meat for a vegan dish.

Can other noodles be used for this recipe?

Of course! Try gluten free buckwheat soba noodles, gluten free glass noodles or gluten free rice noodles. These other alternatives will affect the appearance and texture of the dish but they give you more options to look for at your local grocery stores.
