  • Author: Seonkyoung Longest
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x



For Sauce

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated


  • 1 tbsp cooking oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 2 skin-on chicken thighs, cut into bite sizes
  • 2 portions ramen noodles
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 ramen egg
  • toasted seaweed (gim/nori)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Bring a pot of water to boil. 
    Combine all ingredients for sauce in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat a medium size pot over medium high heat, add cooking oil and swirl to coat. If you are using stainless pot, go ahead and follow next step. 
  3. When oil is shimmering, reduce heat to low & let it sit for 3 minutes. Increase heat to medium high to preheat pot. (this way we can insure that chicken is not stick to bottom of pot.)
  4. Add chicken, skin side down. Sear chicken 5 minutes or until skins are golden brown. Flip over, cook 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Tap out excess oil with paper towel as needed.
  5. Pour sauce mixture and bring it to simmer. Drop ramen noodles into boiling water. Cook noodles by following directions of package you’re using. Drain and add into chicken. 
  6. Drizzle sesame oil on top of noodles. Toss noodles until they are coated evenly with sauce. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with green onions, ramen egg and nori. Finally, sprinkle black pepper right on top and it’s done! Enjoy!
