57. Nissin Chow Mein Chicken Flavor

IMG_5621 

Whenever I hear the words – chow mein I get hungry. For me it is one of those not-so-unhealthy snacks. And nothing beats the chow mein from a tiny shack in your local market because the greasier, the better!

 Never reviewed instant noodles packaged in a tray. Also looks like they have to be cooked only in a microwave. Damn. I prefer the stove over any other method. But since this is the only pack I have, I’m just going to follow the instructions.

Cooking directions as on the wrapping –

  1. Open lid to dotted line. Remove savory sauce packet.
  2. Add room temperature water to fill line.
  3. Cook for 5 minutes in a microwave (1000W) on high. Let stand for 1 minute.
  4. Do not drain. Some water remaining in the container after cooking is desirable. Do not reuse the container.

 A slightly broader and flatter wheat noodle block here. The colorful veggie mix consists of dried cabbage flakes, carrot chunks and what looks like chicken chunks (or it soy chunks?).

The sauce not only looks heavenly (with a layer of oil at the top) but even smells heaven like. Its got a faint peanutty aroma along with a hint of soy sauce, ginger and onion. Perfect!

 This plate looks much better than what I was expecting! Even the chow mein aroma is on point!

The plentiful broad noodles give an authentic “chow mein” vibe and cooking in the microwave is not such a bad thing after all 😛

The sauce does its magic and this tastes like authentic street style chow mein! These noodles are even greasy! However i couldn’t taste any chicken in there and that’s where it loses some points. And were those the “chicken” chunks in there?? Other veggies hydrated decently well though.

Anyways, it is hard to stop eating them! Someone send me more of these!! Please!

Pro tip – add a dash of chilli sauce or chilli oil or make a quick chicken/veg chilli stir fry and you are sorted. Really, trust me on this!
