Chicken Sauteed with Zucchini and Noodles

1 whole chicken breast or 2 halves, diced or thinly sliced

1 tablespoon of oil

1 clove garlic, crushed or 1 teaspoon garlic, minced

2 tablespoons light soy sauce

1/2 cup bamboo shoots, cut into matchsticks

14 cups canned mushroom slices

1 1/2 cups diced zucchini

1 tablespoon of cornstarch

1/4 cup water or chicken broth

3-4 packets of chicken flavored ramen noodles depending on your guests

Put water for the noodles. Ramen noodles cook quickly, follow package directions, but will drain to serve. You don’t need to cook them separately, just cook them all in the same pot. When the cooking time is up, remove them from the heat; keep warm until chicken is cooked, then drain.
Sauté the chicken over high heat with the garlic in a small amount of oil. When it turns white, add the soy sauce and continue stirring for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the zucchini, bamboo shoots, and mushrooms. Continue cooking for a few more minutes.
Mix the cornstarch with the water or broth. Add the mixture and cook, stirring until thickened.
Serve the zucchini chicken on a bed of drained ramen noodles. For 4 people.
