Notes
With canned chicken weight of meal is 9 ounces. Find 3-ounce cans of chicken in 3 packs by Swanson or 3-ounce pouches online.[br]To save more weight, use 1/4 cup freeze dried chicken instead, packing it with the ramen. Add 1/4 tsp more bouillon and 1/4 cup more water.[br]The pecans can be left out for a lighter tasting soup. It will have a gentle lemon-chicken flavor, quite nice to soothe tummies. The pecans tend to thicken the soup as well – you will notice your broth disappearing quickly after adding in.[br]You can use baked ramen (which we did) or Chuka Soba noodles for the ramen.[br]Based on items used the stats are:[br]650 calories[br]33 grams protein
