This 30 minute Easy Chicken Ramen Soup is a better-for-you, more grown-up version of your college days favorite. You know what I’m talking about, right? Who didn’t love that affordable (10 for $1.00!) packaged and oh-so-sodium laden ramen soup? I know I sure did.

But you know what? I’ve grown up and so have my taste buds. I am also a lot more conscious of what I am putting in my body, not to mention the bodies of the loved ones I am feeding around the dinner table. For this reason, I am making this Easy Chicken Ramen Soup using Spectrum® brand Organic Sesame Oil to take my childhood ramen soup to new heights of deliciousness.

What’s so great about this Ramen Soup Hack?

For this Easy Chicken Ramen Soup 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.

How do you make ramen soup?

This Chicken Ramen Soup comes together really quickly. 30 minutes is all it takes to get this flavorful 8 ingredient dish onto the table, which makes it a real winner in my book. For this recipe, we'll be heating some broth and then adding a ton of flavor, finally we’ll finish it by adding the cooked chicken and perfect soft boiled “ramen-egg.” 

What do you need to make this ramen soup?

Here’s what you’ll need to grab from the store:

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.
