Chicken Ramen

Chicken RamenWe made ramen from scratch for the first time, and it turned out great. We had a large piece of leftover chicken in the freezer and decided to make broth from scratch. I highly recommend it. It’s easy, and the results are delicious.


1/4 chicken
1/2 bag baby carrots
1-2 green onion stalk, chopped
2 packs of precooked udon
salt to taste

Fill a large pot with desired amount of water, add 3 pinches of salt and the chicken, and bring to a boil. Keep on heat for 1-1.5 hrs.

About 45 min. into the boil, remove the chicken, shred off the meat, and place back into the pot. Add the carrots and a few splashes of olive oil and bring back to a boil. Taste every once in a while and add salt and/or oil if needed. When the broth tastes ready, drop in the noodles, cook for another 5 min., then turn off the heat and garnish with green onion.
