I love a good bowl of ramen! While Tonkotsu is my favorite, that isn’t something that I’ve attempted to make at home. Maybe some day I’ll be adventurous enough to make my own Tonkotsu broth. For a much faster and easier weeknight meal, this ramen with chicken recipe is my go to. It’s super simple to prepare and totally appeases my ramen cravings.
4 packages of ramen noodles (discard the flavor packet)
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
4 eggs (soft boiled)
2 stalks of baby bok choy
4 stalks green onion
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
3 cloves of garlic
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1/8 cup rice vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
salt to taste
pepper to taste
chili oil drizzle (optional)
How to make Chicken Ramen
Sauté the garlic, ginger and diced white parts of the green onions in oil. Then add the chicken broth, stock and water.
Bring to a boil then add the chicken and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
Shred the chicken and add it back to the pot. Add the soy sauce, rice vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare the ramen noodles separately. First, place the ramen noodles in the bowl. Top with chicken and bok choy and then pour in broth to cover the noodles. For optional toppings, add a soft boiled egg, diced green onions, sesame seeds and a drizzle of chili oil.
