How To: Healthy, Wagamama-Style Chicken Ramen

Since the weather in England has become some what dull, I thought I’d share a favourite meal of mine, usually for the colder months when something warm would be of preference at meal times. More importantly, if you’ve been fortunate enough to take a visit to your local Wagamama restaurant pre-lockdown, I can hand on heart promise you this recipe results in a replica of the Chicken Ramen.

NOTE: This recipe serves 1. Some of you have been asking on my previous recipes how many people they are for – I will be sure to include this in further posts, thanks for the tip!

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast fillet 
  • 4 tbsp dark soy sauce 
  • 500ml boiling water
  • 2 sachets miso *You can also use knorr liquid stock pot or vegetable bouillon powder in place of the miso
  • Dash light soy 
  • Dash fish sauce 
  • 4 spring onions, diagonally cut 
  • Grated garlic clove 
  • 1/2 red chilli, deseeded and sliced 
  • 1/4 inch grated ginger 1 packet instant noodles (*you do not need the flavouring sachet) 
  • Handful spinach
  • Handful red pepper, julienne 
  • Handful bean sprouts
  • (To garnish: handful fresh coriander, red chilli and spring onions)

Method:

  1. To poach the chicken breast, place into a pan and cover with boiling water. Add the dark soy and simmer for approximately 7-8 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and shred the meat. 
  2. Bring 500ml water to the boil in a pan or wok, then add the miso or stock
  3. Add light soy sauce, fish sauce, spring onions, garlic, chilli and ginger. Cook for 20 seconds. 
  4. Put the noodles into the broth and cook for 1 minute
  5. Add the spinach, red pepper and bean sprouts. Boil for 2-3 minutes, or until the noodles are soft
  6. Season to taste, add sesame oil and ladle into a large serving bowl
  7. Sprinkle over the shredded chicken and the vegetable garnish
