I really like almost all types of asian food (or at least what I have tried up until now). I really like indian, thai, japanese and chinese food. They all have a few things in common, they all use spices, chile, and a lot of vegetables, I guess that’s why I like them, because, since I’m mexican I like those things. They all have amazing dishes. If you also like asian food, like we do, you have to go see our sushi rolls recipe, or chinese style fried rice and our butter chicken. You will love them.

Ramen is a fun dish, because you can add the inrgedients you want or use others instead, depending on what you like. Also, there are different types of broths, that are made in diffrent ways.

This recipe, is the easy version of a chicken ramen, to quickly make it at home. This, is better, because the ingredients to make an authentic and original ramen are quite hard to find in most places.

Now, in a chicken ramen, we usually use chicken, noodles, a hard or soft boiled egg, srping onion, some type og vegetables (it can vary), and some type of mushrooms (this depends a lot on the flavor you want to get). I, personally, really like using broccoli, but you could easily replace it and use some mushrooms or other vegetables you like instead.

For the chicken:
  1. Place a big pan on the stove over medium high heat with some oil and preheat the oven to 375º F (180º C).

  2. In a small bowl, beat together the egg and milk using a fork. Place the flour and the bread crumbs in different plates.

  3. Distribute all the spices used for the chicken betweem the flour and bread crumbs, adding half to the flour and the other half to the bread crumbs.

  4. Cut each chicken breast in half to end up with 4 pieces of chicken. Cover each piece with the flour mixture, then coat it in the egg and milk mixture to finish by coating it with the bread crumbs. Do this with all the chicken pieces and cook them on the pan for 3 minutes each side.

  5. Place the chicken pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 375º F (180º C) for 10 minutes.
