Spicy Chicken Ramen
Chop some celery into small pieces and add to boiling water 1 minute before adding noodles. Prepare a package as normal. When finished, add two drops of Dave's Insanity Sauce (one drop if preparing a half-package) and stir vigorously. You will need to evenly distribute the sauce if at all possible. Although this recipe works with other ramen varieties, it is particularly good with Chicken Flavor.
This is a good way to use some leftover chicken broth if you have some from the preparation of another dish. Prepare as normal, then drain half of the liquid at the end of cooking. Add 1 cup of chicken broth, as pure broth with the noodles is very potent. If you wish, you can use a higher proportion of broth to water, but I find that half and half works very well. Small pieces of boiled chicken, if you have any, are also fantastically delicious.
