Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Crush noodles and spread on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, until lightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add orange juice to the pan and cook, scraping up any browned bits, for 15 seconds. Add broccoli; cover and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.

  • Add the vinegar mixture, honey, garlic, crushed red pepper and salt to the pan; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook for 1 minute more. Top with the ramen noodles.
