Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • [Steamed chicken breast]

    • 1 chicken breast (200 g)
    • Less than 1/2 tsp salt
    • A pinch of pepper
  • [A]

    • 2-3 thinly slices of ginger
    • Naga-negi long onion (green portion), as needed
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 1/2 naga-negi long onion
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 packets instant ramen noodles
  • [B]

    • Ginger (thinly sliced), as needed
    • Naga-negi long onion (green portion), as needed
  • Sesame oil, as needed
  • Black pepper (coarsely ground), to taste

Directions

1

Skin the chicken breast and rub in the salt and pepper. Fold over the thin tip and place in a heat-resistant dish.

Advice

The thickness should be even to allow the meat to cook evenly.

2

Place [A] on the chicken, sprinkle with sake and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave (600 W) for around 4 minutes. Let it cool to body temperature. With your fist, pound the chicken to allow the juices to seep in. Shred into pieces.

3

Cut the negi lengthwise in half and then diagonally into thin slices. Soak in water for a few minutes to remove the bite. Drain. Cut the cherry tomatoes across in half.

4

Mix half of the steamed chicken together with the thinly sliced negi and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil.

5

Warm 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a pot and stir-fry [B]. Following the instructions on the instant ramen packet, add the appropriate amount of water and instant soup to the pot. When it comes to a boil, remove [B]. Boil the noodles as specified and add the cherry tomatoes.

6

Warm the individual serving bowls and pour the noodles and soup into them. Top with the chicken and negi mixture and sprinkle with black pepper to taste.
