    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.
