I like to make chicken flavored Ramen noodles and add sliced cooked carrots in to it. I buy a can of Libby's sliced carrots and just add some to the bottom of the bowl of noodles. It makes a great lunch and is another way to get your kids to eat more veggies.
Does everyone like long stringy Ramen noodles? I don't, so I pulverize them in a plastic baggy by smushing them with a glass-pint canning jar filled with whatever. After cooking, they are very easy to eat with a spoon.
My nine year old son loves it!

Native chickens are those we raise in our own backyards. Most of us prefer native chickens, because they are tastier than the commercial broilers in the market.
