Chicken Ramen Noodle Soup Cooking Instructions
1Remove the chicken from the packet and sit on a plate allowing it to be brought to room temperature. Make sure you go through the process of washing all of the fresh produce to ensure there is no unwanted pesticides or creepy crawlies. In a large pot bring 2 liters of water to the boil. Cut all the stems and leave of the washed Choy Sum. Make sure to cut the stems finer than the leaves. Trim the base of the mushroom and discard the unused stalks. Also, trim the root end of the scallions making sure to separate the white bottom and the green tops of them. Next up peel the ginger and either finely chop it of crush it in a garlic press. In a separate bowl add the miso paste and the mirin and soy sauce as well as a 1/4 a cup of water.
2Ok, time to cook up that chicken! First thing, make sure you season it with some salt and pepper so that you add flavour to the chicken as your are cooking it. Add a splash of olive oil to a non-stick pan on a medium heat. Make sure you place the chicken skin side down so you end up with nice crisp skin that is not over cooked. One tip that works really well is covering the chicken loosely with a piece of foil to keep the heat in. You could also use a lid but then you run the risk of overcooking the chicken. Cook the chicken for 10 to 13 minutes checking occasionally until crispy and brown and then flip and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes maximum. Take the chicken out of the pan and allow to rest in half of the cooking juices.
3With your chicken cooked it is time to cook the eggs! We will not talk you through the eggs more than we think is needed as you will likely have some experience cooking up boiled eggs. Grab a pot and half fill it with water. Make sure to puncture the egg shells with a sharp knife so they don't explode on you and then set a timer for 6 minutes. When the water is boiling gently lower the eggs in and allow the eggs to boil away. When the egg timer is finished take them off the heat and run them under some cool water.
When the cold of winter rolls in there really is one dish you have to turn to. This super healthy and hearty ramen soup with noodles will keep you warm and cosy to the core.
