Thai Chicken Ramen


Here is the last of the delicious Nissin RAOH flavors I wanted to share with you. Have you tried any of them yet? This one is the Umami Tonkotsu and I love how it makes this Thai Chicken Ramen so easy to throw together since it already has so much flavor. Tonkotsu is a style of ramen from Kyushu (southern Japan) and is the most popular flavor of ramen in both Japan and the US. RAOH Umami Tonkotsu features many layers of flavors, including onion, garlic and ginger making the soup rich and robust. I also love how the Nissin RAOH Ramen are so versatile. Yes, of course you can just eat them straight up as they are, not changing a thing and you’ll still get a delicious bowl of ramen, but if you want to make it more of a meal you can add a protein and veggie to complete it. And the best part? Unlike existing instant noodle products which are deep fried, RAOH’s ramen noodles are not fried, so they contain no trans fats, no cholesterol and very little saturated fat.

The beauty of ramen is that it’s so easy to create your own custom ramen. All you need to do is pick a protein like chicken, shrimp, pork, eggs or tofu and pile in the veggies, like, cabbage, carrots, bok choy, mushrooms, corn, spinach, cabbage etc. You can even add in additional flavorings like I’ve done here to give it a thai kick. This version is a great place for you to get started on all that you can create with a package of ramen! I was seriously loving this! It reminds me a bit of pad thai but in ramen soup form. Plus I loved how easy it was to make!

Here are some other options from some other AMAZING blogging friends to try with RAOH ramen:

    I like things spicy and was going to add hot sauce to it, but the Thai green curry paste made it delightfully spicy!! December 20, 2015 at 9:40am Reply

  • Dani: Aaarrrgggh!! I was unable to access my email for the last 2 weeks, and so missed out. What a wonderful give-away! I’ve tried the Tonkatsu and the Dandan, and can’t wait to try the Miso and the Soy Sauce flavors. The Tonkatsu is like no other ramen I have ever tried; it’s worth every penny! I’ll be ordering more of that soon, so if I do it through your site, will you see a little somethin’-somethin’? December 28, 2015 at 5:11pm Reply

  • Dianna Holden: Loved this Asian dish! We added some Sriracha hot Chili Sauce after serving it. I also added sliced mushrooms. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe. :) January 11, 2016 at 5:28pm Reply

  • Emalee: Your recipe doesn’t mention green onion in the ingredients list but uses them. You might want to edit. Thanks for your recipes. I’ve tried several & have enjoyed them. I’ll be using your white chili for my ward’s chili cook off in a week. Let’s hope I win. January 12, 2016 at 8:14am Reply

  • Shelby Crocker: This soup looks delicious. I have tried finding the noodles and found I can only buy them through Amazon Prime and they are out. I have even written the noodle company and they said they only sell them through Amazon. Where are you buying the noodles and can I substitute them? March 9, 2016 at 5:19pm Reply

  • Aileen: Hi Jaclyn – what is the brand of the thai green curry that you use ? I have not found any that I liked. Thank you ! March 28, 2016 at 11:32pm Reply

  • Cherlynn: I want to try this but am worried about the spice level. Would you recommend using less of the green curry paste, another kind or substitution? April 4, 2016 at 12:05pm Reply

  • Christine: I am allergic to MSG but I want to make this so bad! I love ramen but I can never eat the prepackaged ones. Would it affect the flavor too much if I omitted the seasoning packet? If so, is there anything I can add that does not contain MSG? April 8, 2016 at 9:45pm Reply

  • Robbi: This looks amazing but I’m disappointed a Ramen flavor pack is called for because the “Nutrition” Facts on the back of the Ramen Pack for this recipe has the sodium at 1010mg for just 1/2 a pk that means for a whole pk there is 2020mg and for 2pks that the recipe calls for there would be 4040mg of sodium in my Ramen!!! Are you aware of that!! I appreciate your hard work in trying to share a delicious meal but isn’t the purpose of making homemade to make healthier? I hope you rewrite this so we don’t have a heart attack. My heart is palpitating just looking at it! May 23, 2016 at 11:25pm Reply

    • Dani: I don’t like to use pre packaged seasonings either. So I used garlic powder, garlic salt, salt, onion powder, spicy curry powder, sesame oil, soy sauce and red pepper flakes and it turned out awesome!! I did random amounts but probably about 1-2 tablespoons of each seasoning. January 7, 2017 at 7:16pm Reply

      • Loriltx: I hope you mean 1-2 teaspoons. 1-2 tablespoons for soup for 4 people would surely be way to much. May 18, 2017 at 9:11am Reply

        • Jaclyn: I’m not sure which you are referring to? May 18, 2017 at 10:46am Reply

          • Loriltx: I was responding to Dani saying she mixes her own spices for this soup and would use 1-2 tablespoons of those she listed–garlic powder garlic salt, onion powder, spicy curry powder, sea same oil, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes. May 18, 2017 at 12:40pm

  • Danielle: Where can I buy those noodles at? Thanks! August 30, 2016 at 10:41pm Reply

  • Michelle: This was SO good! I wanted to cook this the same day so I just bought the cheap ramen (1 oriental, and 1 chicken) at the grocery store. I stirred the seasoning packets in when I poured in the water and coconut milk. Then I added the noodles about 5 minutes before serving. My kids devoured it! September 28, 2016 at 4:17pm Reply

  • Nick: The Nissin webpage for RAOH no longer exists. I’m not even sure they’re still making it anymore, or if they are it’s only for Amazon Prime in bulk orders. We dropped Prime, we weren’t getting our money’s worth with it so is there another place to buy this? Or would normal Ramen noodles of a certain flavor be an acceptable substitute? I’ve never had umami tonkotsu and have no idea what that flavor is. September 29, 2016 at 2:52pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: A pork (tonkatsu is pork flavor) or chicken flavor would probably be the next best option. There are other ingredients in the sauce packet included which aren’t in your typical ramen packets like sesame oil and ginger so I’d add a little of those as well. Or you could just use the ramen and start from scratch with low sodium chicken broth, garlic, onion, ginger, lite soy sauce etc. instead of using the flavor packet. September 29, 2016 at 5:57pm Reply

  • Chelsea: The ramen packet comes with both a flavor pouch and a “soup”. Do I use both? October 19, 2016 at 6:08pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes :). Hope you love it! October 19, 2016 at 10:05pm Reply

  • Stacy: We live in Switzerland and I was not able to find that specific flavor of ramen. Can I just use the chicken flavored? Should I add any other spices to make up for it?

    Thanks!! :-) February 14, 2017 at 11:42pm Reply

    • Alicia: yeah I just used chicken flavored and it was delish! January 2, 2018 at 5:16pm Reply

  • Katie: This looks delicious! I have red curry paste in my pantry. Do you think that would work in place of green? April 11, 2017 at 1:45pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes that should be fine. April 11, 2017 at 11:55pm Reply

  • Kari: This was absolutely amazing. We did substitute thin rice noodles for the ramen (almost a big mistakes) and it turned out very nicely. We also cheated a bit and used a “pre-made” curry sauce. Short on time, but EVERYONE had 2 bowls. :) May 21, 2017 at 6:30pm Reply

  • Jocelyn: This was absolutely delicious! I found the noodles at Costco, and the price was excellent. Thank you for a dish I will be making again. August 8, 2017 at 9:15pm Reply

  • Alicia: This recipe is a homerun, and 15 minutes start to finish. So weeknight quick! And my kids LOOOOOOOOVE it. January 2, 2018 at 5:15pm Reply
