Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken-tenders or chicken-breasts
  • 4 cups chicken-broth
  • 3 packages ramen-noodles, discard the seasonings
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 stalks scallion, white parts into 2" length and green part into rounds
  • tbsp vegetable-oil
  • 2 cups water
  • ground black pepper
  • 8 oz bok-choy (stem removed & sliced into pieces)
  • 2 tbsp soy-sauce or Japanese-soup base (add more to taste)
  • chili-oil (S&B La-Yu Chili Oil)
  • black and white-sesame (Ooptional)
  • salt

Instructions

  • Season the chicken with ground black pepper and on each side of the chicken.
  • Switch on the saute mode on the Instant pot. After pot is completely heated and warm, put in the oil. Pan sear the chicken till both sides turn brownish.
  • Add the chicken-broth, water, and the white-parts of the scallions. Cover the pot & choose manual and set to high pressure about 10minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the ramen-eggs. In a small-pot, add cold water. The water level has to be enough to cover most of eggs. After the water boils, add the eggs and cook for 7minutes.
  • After your eggs done, then put them to ice-water and leave to rest for 5minutes. Gently peel the shells off, while the eggs remain in the water. Be certain that you eliminate the membrane covering the egg . Slice the eggs into halves. Put aside.
  • When the Instant pot beeps, turn into Quick Release. After the valve-drops, then remove the lid-carefully. Discard the white sections of the scallions and scoop-out the chicken. Let cool and shred the chicken with 2 forks.
  • Switch to saute-mode and once the soup-boils, add the chicken and ramen noodles. Ensure that you push on the ramen noodles down so that they submerge from the soup.
  • The moment the ramen noodles becomes tender, add the bok-choy and soy-sauce. Stir the ramen around. Cancel saute-mode and take out the from pot. DO NOT OVERCOOK that the ramen since the noodles will probably continue to cook after you remove the pot.
  • Split the ramen-noodles to 4-bowls. Top with ramen chopped scallions, eggs, sesame seeds (if using) and dashes of chili-oil. Serve immediately, don't keep in the pot since they can turn soggy.

Notes
