It’s freezing. Literally. Freezing!!!
I couldn’t feel my fingers or toes when I got home today. I was in dire need of finding some way to defrost my frozen self.
Using a few ingredients I threw together this sort of ‘cheat’ chicken ramen.
Tasty, hot and nutritious.
- 125g dry egg noodles
- 75g beansprouts
- 50g pak choi, washed with the ends trimmed
- 25g shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 1 roast chicken breast (left over or you can buy from your local supermarket/deli), skin removed and thinly sliced
- 400ml good quality chicken stock
- 400ml water
- Soya sauce
- Sesame oil
- Black pepper
In a wok or frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of sesame oil on a medium heat and gently stir fry the beansprouts, mushrooms and a teaspoon of soya sauce for around five minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Next, in a saucepan add the chicken stock, water, 2 tablespoons of soya sauce, and a few grinds of black pepper. Bring the stock mixture to boil, reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and add the pak choi.
After cooking the pak choi for 3 minutes add the egg noodles and sliced chicken and continue to cook for a further 4 minutes, or until the noodles are soft.
Remove from the heat and stir in the beansprouts and mushrooms.
Serve and slurp.
Makes one ramen.
