Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Lucky Me! Chicken Na Chicken Instant Noodles

Chicken instant noodles are known the world over. In fact the first instant noodles ever sold were chicken flavored! Seems like chicken is a very accessible flavor for people. I reviewed this one over 3 years ago the first time – let’s see how Chicken na Chicken by Lucky Me! fares this time around!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Add in soup base and garnish and stir. Enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has a strong chicken scent.

The garnish sachet.

Has kind of a garlic and fried onion scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added grilled chicken and sliced green onion. The noodles have a nice comfort food quality to them. They’re not as firm as many, but they are more what you would expect in a chicken soup. The broth has a strong saltiness and good chicken flavor. It also has a nice bit of surface tension and consistency which makes it something I would say is tantamount for perfection if you’re looking for some relief for a winter cold. The garnish adds a nice little onion and garlic taste. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4807770190995.

Here’s a TV spot for Lucky Me! Chicken Na Chicken. One thing you’ll notice is noodles are ferred to as ‘mami.’ This is yet another term in the world for instant noodles – mee in Malaysia, mie and mi in Indonesia.
