Love heat? Spicy Chicken Shio Ramen is for you!
First off, is this traditional ramen? Probably not. But the noodles are!
Spicy ramen is all the rage in the US and has caught on like (ah-hem) wildfire! Our Spicy Chicken Shio Ramen recipe uses our Umami Shoyu Fresh Ramen. The heat comes from a couple of different sources. However, you can alter the recipe to suit your level of heat. Our recipe uses boneless skinless chicken thighs for easy preparation. Thigh meat is more flavorful and juicier and pairs well with the shoyu soup base. Add a shoyu ramen egg, daikon radish, green onion, nori, and some sesame seeds if you like. We added some corn and green chilis for a bit of a kick!
Give this recipe a try and experience ramen restaurant taste- AT HOME! Shoyu means soy sauce and this is the next oldest flavor type versus Shio. The sauce made by fermenting soya beans is used to make the broth salty. Shoyu sauce is not your regular table soy sauce, but, typically a special sauce with additional ingredients made according to a secret recipe. Pair this with fresh ramen noodles from Japan- and you are in ramen heaven!
