Last week when I shared my Teriyaki Beef with Rice recipe I warned you I was on an Asian kick and a ramen dish would be next! Well, today I introduce to you…Ginger Chicken with Ramen.
I did something different with this recipe, instead of using fresh or ground ginger I used Young Living Vitality Ginger Essential Oil! One tablespoon of ground ginger is equal to 1 drop of the Vitality Ginger Essential Oil so it was a very easy conversion in this recipe. I just receive the Ginger Vitality order free with this month’s Essential Rewards order so I couldn’t wait to try it. Don’t worry if you don’t have the oil on hand, I list the other ginger measurement in the recipe as well.
This Ginger Chicken with Ramen recipe is very easy to make. The ginger sauce is a marinade so I recommend making it up in the morning and letting the chicken marinate all day long for the best flavor. The cooking time is only about 10-15 minutes.
This flavorful Ginger Chicken with Ramen recipe is easy to make. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 4 hours before cooking.
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 Tbsp canola oil
- 2 pkg instant ramen
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 drops Young Living Vitality Ginger Essential Oil or 2 Tbs ground ginger
- 2 Tbs canola oil
- 2 tsp fresh ground pepper
Cut the chicken breasts into 1" cubes. Place in a gallon size zippy bag.
In a medium bowl mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, oil, and pepper.
Pour the marinade into the bag, remove the air and zip shut. Lay on a plate and place in the refrigerator to marinate 4-24 hours.
Heat 1/2 Tbs canola oil in skillet over medium-high heat. When oil becomes wavy it is ready for the chicken.
Using a slotted spoon, so that the majority of the marinade remains in the bag, remove the chicken and place it in the sizzling pan. Seal bag and set aside cook chicken for 5-8 minutes, until fully cooked.
While chicken is cooking, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot.
When chicken is done cooking, remove from pan onto a clean plate.
Reduce heat to medium and pour in remaining marinade. Bring marinade to a boil and allow to boil for about 5 minutes, until it starts to thicken up, stirring occasionally.
When the water is boiling, add the ramen noodles, discard the flavor packets. Cook the noodles as directed on the packet, about 3 minutes then drain.
When the marinade starts to thicken, add the chicken back into the skillet and cover with the glaze.
Serve the glazed chicken and extra sauce over the ramen.
