Noodlesoup, also called ramen, is a super popular dish in Japan. It is as popular as our dutch fries! The first time I ate ramen was at the TonTonClub in Amsterdam and I immediately fell in love! I tried some recipes, changed some things and now I have my favorite combination. Ramen with pak choi, broccoli, sticky chicken and the best thing: a soft egg. Oh and you don’t need to go to a toko or special Japanese store for ingredients. You can get everything just at your local supermarket! I only had to go to AH for miso paste.
Noodlesoup with broccoli and sticky chicken
Preparation time: 30 min
What do you need?
- 300 gr chicken thighs
- Salt and pepper
- olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 piece of ginger (3cm)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 bag of misopaste (I got this from AH)
- 200 gr noodles
- 2 tbsp chilisauce
- 1 liter chicken stock
- 300 gr broccoli
- 1 big pak choi
- 2 eggs
- fresh basil (optional)
- black sesame seeds (optional)
Pre – cooking
- Cut the ginger and garlic into really small pieces
- Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the chicken thighs
- Fry the chicken in butter and oil until golden brown.
- Take the chicken out of the pan and cut into pieces (watch out! hot! Let it cool)
- Slowly fry some garlic and ginger in the pan you used for the chicken. Mix some soy sauce, 1 bag of misopaste, chili sauce and honey. Put the chicken back in the pan and add the sauce.
- Fry the chicken for 4 minutes until sticky.
- Put stock into a big cooking pan and cook the broccoli and eggs for 6 minutes on middle-heat.
- Take the broccoli and egg from the pan and put them in cold water. In this way the broccoli will be nice and green. Peel the egg. Put the broccoli and egg aside for later.
- Add the noodles and pak choi to the stock and cook until cooked.
Now put together your bowl! Add the noodles and broccoli, pour some soup over it and add chicken, egg, sesame seeds and fresh basil.
