Being 200th post, wanted to share a special recipe that my son Ram loves.He is big fan of maggi noodles.Last week in the library,i saw this easy microwave Ramen Chicken Dinner from a food magazine , Taste of Home.Wanted to try it out soon, as Ram loves chicken and noodles.So this will be a perfect treat for him.So tried right away and was a success.I used maggi noodles instead of ramen and followed rest of the recipe as it is.
