Gourmet in Under 60: Transforming Instant Ramen with Chashu Chicken and Umami Magic


  • For the Chashu Chicken:

    • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup mirin
    • 1/4 cup sake
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 green onion, sliced (white and green parts separated)
  • For the Ramen Gourmet Cup of Noodles:


  1. Chashu Time: Combine all Chashu ingredients (except green onion) in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then add the chicken breast and cook for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove chicken and let cool in the liquid. Once cool, slice thinly and reserve the braising liquid.
  2. Ramen Resurrection: Boil 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Add the ramen seasoning packet and bring back to a simmer. Boil your egg for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Flavor Fiesta: Add your Nissin noodles and cook according to package instructions. While the noodles cook, heat the braising liquid in a skillet and pan-fry the sliced Chashu chicken until lightly browned.
  4. Bowl Building: Assemble your ramen masterpiece! Divide the noodles between two bowls. Top with the Chashu chicken, sliced green onion (both white and green parts), seaweed slices, and your your egg in two halves. Top up with black garlic umami chilli oil from our online shop.

Pro Tips:

  • Eggcellent Options: Want a softer yolk? Poach for 2-4 minutes. Prefer it hard-boiled? Boil for more than 6 mins
  • Level Up the Broth: Add a splash of sesame oil or oyster sauce for extra umami depth.
  • Veggie Extravaganza: Swap the seaweed salad for baby spinach, bok choy, or any other stir-fry vegetables you love.
  • Leftover Love: The braised Chashu chicken is a versatile treasure! Slice it thin for sandwiches, shred it for salads, or add it to fried rice.

In just 60 minutes, you’ve gone from instant to gourmet, proving that Nissin is a canvas for culinary creativity. So unleash your inner ramen master, experiment with flavors, and discover the magic of transforming humble ingredients into bowls of pure umami joy.

Now go forth and conquer your Instant Ramen cravings!
