Chicken Ramen Skillet Supper for Moms on a Budget

Putting a home cooked meal on the table and one that will please everyone is not an easy task in my home.  Everyone likes something different or that is how it seems.  Keeping them meals on budget ex specially when that budget is a tight one seems even more difficult some days.  Then I discovered the beauty of the Ramen Skillet Supperr.  I tease my daughter often these days and t ell her she needs to get ready to live off of these in college.  She says no but they really are so budget friendly.  Ramen noodles are cheap as can be at .22 a pack at Walmart and I hear some stores have them even cheaper.  Just Doctor them up and you have a really inexpensive dinner to put on your table in only a few minutes.
