30 Minute Easy Chicken Ramen Soup

You know what we're talking about, right? Who didn’t love that affordable (10 for $1.00!) packaged and oh-so-sodium laden ramen soup? We sure did. But you know what? We’ve grown up and so have our taste buds. We are also a lot more conscious of what we are putting in our bodies, not to mention the bodies of the loved ones we are feeding around the dinner table. For this reason, we am making this Easy Chicken Ramen recipe using Spectrum® brand Organic Sesame Oil to take our childhood ramen soup to new heights of deliciousness.

Fast Ramen Soup Hack?

For this Easy Chicken Ramen recipe we’ll be using the same dried ramen noodles you know and love, but losing that nasty sodium-filled flavor packet in exchange for a few “homemade” flavor bombs. A favorite new discovery of ours is the Organic Sesame Oil by Spectrum.®.

The Spectrum® brand line of natural and organic culinary oils and vinegars has more than 30 varieties of seed, nut, and plant oils that are good for any type of cooking, including coconut oil, olive oil, canola oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, sesame oil and more. What’s more, the flavors they provide take ordinary meals to the next level, this ramen being no exception.

Is This An Authentic Ramen Recipe?

Ramen is one of those dishes that is hard to recreate authentically at home if you don’t have a lot of time. Most restaurant recipes take time to develop an intense flavor profile that is hard to compete with. Luckily, we’ve applied a few tricks to this Easy Chicken Ramen Soup recipe that make our homemade version just as craveable as a favorite ramen you might have experienced abroad.

  • Jfarris

    Can you recommend a good ramen noodles brand for this recipe?

    You can literally just use the noodles from top ramen or maruchan ramen. They turn out great i this recipe and are super affordable.

  • Joanna

    What's your favorite chili paste/sauce to use with this? It looks like there are a lot of options and different types out there.

    Sambal Oelek is our favorite if you can find it!

  • pamod

    serves for how many?

    This serves 2. Hope you enjoy!

  • Brady

    Is it spicy?

    Not very, but if you are worried about spice just don't put very much of the Scallion Chili Sesame Oil on top. Hope you enjoy Brady!

  • Annie

    Could I NOT add the chicken slices and eggs? I was just wondering if I could make this a bit faster and since I am not a fan of non veg I thought the chicken stock would be enough....

    Yes, you can omit those items if you don't prefer them. Thanks Annie, hope you enjoy!

  • Elisha

    This ramen is so good! I've made it multiple times for my family (including my 8 and 10 year old boys) and they all agree it's delicious! It's such a healthier version to the packages of Nissin Top Ramen from my youth. Thank you for this!!

    Thanks Elisha, we are so happy that the whole family loves it!

  • Al

    The perfect bowl of comfort. YUM.

    Thanks Al, so glad you enjoyed it!

  • Sarah

    This is SO GOOD and SUPER EASY!!! I was feeling too intimidated to make Ramen but have always wanted to. The ingredients are easy to find (nothing you have to order or go to a specialty store for). I first tried this over the holidays for my husband and I…and now it has become a bi-weekly staple! I’ve even started to modify and add or try more veggies in it like carrots, peppers, etc. DO NOT SLEEP on this Ramen recipe, it’s AMAZING!

    Thank you so much, Sarah! We are so glad you love it and it's great to hear it's become a staple!

  • Rachael

    Turned out great quick easy meal

    Thank you Rachael! Glad you liked it!

  • Carol

    I loved it. It truly was easy and sooooo good. I still can’t believe how something that usually is so time consuming to prepare was so easy and so delicious.
    This will be my go to recipe this winter.

    Love this Carol! Thanks for trying it out and love that it's become a go to for you!
