A staple college food and a dish culinary perfected by many chefs. Lets meet both worlds halfway with this dish! My favorite ramen to use is Shin Ramen (Ramyun) but any brand will work fine with this recipe. 

Even though your ramen is a bit fancier now don’t be afraid to eat it in Lee Min Ho’s fav way in Boys Before Flowers!

For the chicken
  1. 6 oz. chicken breast (skinless, boneless)
  2. 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  3. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  4. 1/2 cup rice flour
  5. 3 tbsp. honey
  6. 1 tsp minced garlic
  7. 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  8. 1 egg (only whites)
  9. soy sauce (optional)
  10. vegetable oil or similar
For the ramen
  1. Instant Ramen Package (your choice)
  2. water
  3. 2 tsp. sesame oil
Honey Sesame Chicken
  1. Fill a small pot with vegetable oil on medium heat. Make sure there is enough oil so that your chicken will not be crowded
  2. Prepare 2 bowls: one with all purpose flour and rice flour and another with egg whites
  3. Cut the chicken breast into pieces the size of your thumb or smaller. Cover the pieces in egg whites then slather the flour mix until the chicken pieces are completely covered.
  4. When the vegetable oil is warm, carefully throw in the chicken pieces. Let it cook in the oil until the breading turns slightly golden.
  5. While the chicken is cooling off/oil is coming off of it, heat a frying pan on medium heat with the sesame oil, minced garlic, sesame seeds and honey. Taste until you get the right combo. If you think it is too sweet, add some soy sauce.
  6. When the sauce is just right, add in the chicken until it is glazed on each side with the sauce.
Ramen
  1. While prepping the chicken cook ramen according to the directions on the package with the additional sesame oil.
Put it all together
  1. Put ramen in bowl and add chicken on top with any other topping of your choice!
Additional toppings
  1. I like to use corn, seaweed and eggs (preferably egg drop method) but any topping you like is up to you!
Cheat for Time Tip
  1. If you don't want to go through the work of making the chicken you can also just add sliced pork into the ramen broth instead to save time. As long as you add just a bit of sesame oil, I think it makes the ramen more flavorful.
