Chicken Ramen Bowl

Chicken Ramen Bowl

I’m obsessed with this Chicken Ramen Bowl. Oh, baby – it’s to die for.

The broth is super flavourful.

The noodles give comfort food vibes.

The veggies are grounding.

The chicken and egg make it super hearty.

And all together – they provide protein, fibre and healthy fats to help keep your blood sugar stable.

It’s like the most perfect bowl – ever.

Ingredient Spotlight

Whenever I’m making a meal, I have two objections.

Nutrition & Flavour.

I want to ensure there are lots of skin-loving nutrients and that the recipe itself is delicious. Win-win, really.

And this Chicken Ramen Bowl fits the bill on both those accounts.

So let’s break down some of the flavour boosters in the recipe and why I chose them. 

  • Ginger: natural anti-fungal that helps improve digestion, reduce inflammation and promotes normal blood sugar + adds a subtle spice
  • Garlic: another natural anti-fungal that helps fight candida overgrowths in the gut + adds a nice pungent flavour.
  • Lemon juice: full of antioxidants that fight acne-causing oxidative stress + adds acidity and brightness.

Quick reminder: inflammation, poor gut health, and blood sugar dysregulation play a big role in acne.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 large yellow onion (diced)
  • 2 medium carrots (grated or julienned)
  • 1 4 oz. shiitake mushrooms (113g container - stems removed and sliced)
  • 1 inch ginger knob (grated)
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos (see notes)
  • 6 cups broth of choice (see notes)
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken (shredded - see notes)
  • 3 cakes ramen (see notes)
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 large eggs (see notes)
  • 2 green onions (thinly sliced)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions

For the soup:

  • In a large pot, add avocado oil and warm over medium heat.
  • Add onion, carrots, and mushrooms. Saute until onions are translucent (about 5 to 7 minutes).
  • Add ginger and coconut aminos. Saute for another minute.
  • Add broth and rotisserie chicken.
  • Bring soup to a boil and then add ramen cakes. Cook according to ramen package instructions (about 3 minutes).
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and add lemon juice and garlic.
  • Remove from heat and assemble (see below).

For the poached eggs:

  • Bring a medium pot of water to a gentle boil. Reduce to a simmer.
  • Crack each egg individually into a ramekin or small bowl.
  • Gently slide the egg from the ramekin/bowl into the water.
  • Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Remove each egg individually with a slotted spoon to allow the water to drain.
  • Place on a paper towel-lined plate and gently pat dry.

To assemble:

  • Ladle soup into bowls.
  • Top each bowl with a poached egg.
  • Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • This recipe makes two really big bowls or four average-sized bowls.
  • I used homemade bone broth. You can also use store-bought chicken or vegetable broth.
  • I love using a store-bought rotisserie chicken to speed up the process. If you don’t have any, you can use leftover chicken from a previous meal or cube up 1-2 raw breasts and cook it in the soup for 5 to 7 minutes before adding the ramen noodles.
  • I used organic brown rice and millet ramen from Lotus Foods.
  • Make one egg per person eating. You can also use a hard-boiled egg in place of a poached egg.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job -- and we're here to help you do it.

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
