Chicken Flavored Ramen Noodles

Chicken Flavored Ramen Noodles

Delicious ramen with chicken. My kids say it has the taste of home.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Chinese noodles
3 portions
Chicken thigh
1 (about 300 g)
Burdock root
1/2 to 1
1/3 (about 7cm)
Japanese leek
★ Water
700 ml
★ Soy sauce
80 ml
★ Sake
3 tablespoons
★ Sugar
2 tablespoons
★ Dashi stock granules (bonito based)
5 g (about 2 servings of dipping sauce according to the package)
Water (to add later)
500 ml
As needed


1. Shave off the skins of the burdock root and slice into 7 cm-pieces. Then slice into about 3 to 4 mm thin shreds and soak in water to remove any bitterness.
2. Peel the carrot and shred like the burdock root.
3. Chop chicken into large chunks.
4. Add ★ ingredients into a pot and let it boil. When it boils, add chicken and simmer for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from pot.
5. Simmer the burdock and carrot, then remove like the chicken. Add 500 ml water to the broth to make the soup.
6. Thinly slice the leek diagonally and place into a colander or sieve. Squeeze slightly with your hands to remove the sharp taste.
7. Cook the noodles. Pour about two ladleful of soup into a serving dish. Add noodles, burdock, carrots, chicken, and Japanese leek. Add some more soup to finish.
8. Enjoy. Serve with lots of pepper.

Story Behind this Recipe

In my town, you can order ramen even in soba restaurants.
My favorite kind among them is Chinese chicken! I tried to recreate it at home
and I think it's getting close to that restaurant's version.
