Cook the ramen noodles separately according to package directions, reserving the flavoring packet for use below. Drain and keep warm. If you use frozen peas or vegetables, you can cook them in with the noodles.

While cooking the noodles, saute the onion in a large frying pan until onion is soft. Add drained chicken chunks and heat until warmed through, taking care not to shred the chicken chunks.
