In this recipe, use chicken instead of pork, but keep the ramen vibe fairly traditional with a chicken soup base made of garlic, ginger, shiitake mushrooms, and soy sauce, topped with fresh spring onions and a soft-boiled egg. The filling was made of curly ramen noodles and slices of juicy roasted chicken.

• 1 tbsp minced garlic
• 3 tbsp soy sauce

Cooking Instructions:

For the chicken:

1. Season the chicken with a lot of salt and pepper.

2. Turn the oven on to 375°F, and melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the skin is golden brown and easily peels away from the meat. Then turn it over and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until golden.

3. Once the chicken is cooked, place the pan in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven, move it to a platter, and then cover it with foil until you're ready to serve.

For the broth:

1. Over high heat, warm the sesame oil in a large pot until it shimmers. Add ginger and garlic and cook for a short while until tender. Stir in the soy sauce and mirin after adding them for one more minute of cooking.

2. Add the stock, close the lid, and then heat to a boil. After 5 minutes of simmering uncovered, remove the lid and stir in the dried mushrooms. Ten more minutes of gentle simmering, then add salt to taste.

For the soft cooked egg:

1. Put the egg in a pot with just enough boiling water to cover the eggs. Gently place the eggs in the boiling water while they are still cold from the fridge, and let them simmer for either 7 or 8 minutes to get a somewhat runny yolk.

2. In the meantime, prepare a sizable dish of cold water. Transfer the eggs to the ice bath to stop cooking them once the timer goes off. When it's cold enough to handle, wait at least 5 minutes before carefully removing the shell and slicing it in half lengthwise.

Cooking Instructions:

For the pork:

Best Japanese Noodle Soup Recipe

1. Use a pork shoulder with nice fat marbling if you can. To ensure that the marinade can effectively enter the meat, chop it into a few chunks.

2. Salt, brown sugar, fish sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil should all be used to marinate the pork shoulder. If you have the time, let the pork in the marinade for at least a few hours or possibly overnight.

3. Over medium-high heat, place a large saute pan, add the oil and heat through.

4. Add the pork slices and fry them on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes without turning them, then turn the pieces over and sear the other side until well-browned.

5. Set aside.

For the broth:

1. Wash the pork bones in cold water with a clean brush, then place the bones in a strainer.

2. Add water, bones, and kombu to a big pot. To boil and maintain a boil, cook at high heat.

3. With a long wooden spatula, scrap the bottom to prevent burning while stirring constantly.

4. Simmer gently for four hours. To keep the broth from burning, stir the bottom of the pot. Start lowering the stock when it starts to turn milky and thicker.

5. After removing the saucepan from the heat, drain the stock into a new, clean pot. It is advised to quickly cool the stock by submerging the pot's bottom in a pool of cold water to have a flavorful broth.

For the egg:

1. Boil enough water in a pan to completely submerge the egg and let it boil for 6 mins.

2. Cool the eggs for 1-2 minutes under cold running water, then peel the shell immediately.

3. Slice the eggs into your preferred size, then set them aside.
