Crispy Crunchy Ramen Noodle Crusted Grilled Chicken cooked on the Traeger Grill
Tired of your grilled chicken being common? Crust it with Ramen! Make Crispy Crunchy Ramen Noodle Crusted Grilled Chicken cooked on the Traeger Grill.
Coating chicken with ramen noodles is nothing I ever considered until recently. This dish turned out so good on the Traeger Grill that it has almost become an instant classic on our menu. It is easy to make and I am sure that kids of any age will love the crispy, crunchy, exterior with a hint of smoke and lots of chicken flavor.
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 packages chicken-flavored ramen noodles
⅔ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce (optional)
1 tablespoon garlic powder
Open ramen noodle packets, remove seasoning packets and set them aside. Crush un-cooked ramen into small pieces by breaking it up in your hands until pieces are less than ½ inch in size. Set aside
Cut each of the boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 4 or 5 strips that are as uniform in size as possible.
Mix all remaining ingredients including ramen noodle seasoning in a wide, shallow bowl and stir to combine.
Dip each of the chicken strips one at a time into the seasoned oil, coating liberally, and then coat the chicken with the ramen noodle pieces.
Put the pan of chicken on a pre-heated grill. My Traeger was heated to 450F but any temperature between 400 and 450F should work fine. Cook 20-25 minutes until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 and ramen noodles have turned golden brown.
This method should work well on any grill, provided you take care to make sure that the chicken is cooking evenly. One way to do this is to raise the cooking tray with the chicken on it up by setting it on some fire bricks so the heat from the top of your grill or cooker radiates heat down onto the food.
Using the ramen seasoning packet in the oil adds so much chicken flavor to the dish and it is a fun way to make crispy no-fry chicken strips on the grill.
Crunchy Ramen Noodle Crusted Grilled Chicken cooked on the grill will soon become a favorite for your family and friends too.
