  • 1 TBSP freshly grated ginger
  • 5 scallions cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 2 TBSP yellow curry paste
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 6 cups chicken stock or broth, I like to use this chicken stock.
  • 1 13.5 oz can of coconut milk
  • 1 TBSP fish sauce

Topping ideas:

  • Seared or steamed baby bok choy
  • Soft-boiled egg
  • Scallions
  • Pickled or julienned vegetables
  • Sesame seeds

Equipment

  • Large soup pot or Dutch oven
  • sharp knife
  • Tongs
  • Paper towels
  • Large spoon

Instructions 

1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper, and place them into the pot once the oil is hot. Cook the tenders for about 7-10 minutes, flipping halfway through with tongs, or until cooked and they reach an internal temperature of 165ยบ F. Once cooked, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate or cutting board.
  • Add a bit more oil to the pan if necessary, then add the garlic and ginger. Simmer for about a minute.
  • Add the scallions, curry paste, and turmeric, and simmer for about another minute, stirring to break down the curry paste as much as possible.
  • Finally, add the chicken stock and coconut milk. Give everything a good stir and bring the liquid so a low simmer over medium heat.Once simmering, add the fish sauce and stir.
  • If you'd like to add some heat to the broth, add some chili flakes or a tablespoon or two of chili sauce, like sambal oelek.
  • Let it simmer for about 10 minutes.In the meantime, shred or roughly chop the chicken tenders.In a separate pot, prepare your Ramen noodles as per the instructions on the package. (Methods will vary depending on whether the noodles are instant or fresh.)
  • Once the noodles are cooked, strain them, place them in a bowl, and spoon the curry broth over the noodles. Top the noodles with the chicken and top your Ramen bowl with your choice of extras, like seared bok choy, julienned carrots, jammy soft-boiled eggs, etc.
