Chicken & Kimchi Ramen Soup

By Angelika Hanna

It was years ago when I visited New York City that I had Ramen soup in a Japanese restaurant. Normally, I don’t cook Asian meals for various reasons. One of them is that I am not confident in cooking oriental meals. Another reason is that I have to purchase exotic ingredients which I then don’t use up because they do not quite fit in my usual recipe repertoire. I find it easier to go to a restaurant whenever I want to eat an Asian meal. However, when I saw this recipe on the Food Network Channel, the recipe sounded so easy-to-make and delicious that I thought, I would give it a try. The oriental ingredients, the ramen noodles, came in a one meal-sized portion so that I used them up all at once. I got a glass of kimchi, which is Korean pickled cabbage, that will last for a while in the fridge. I did not find the toasted seaweed in my local grocery store, so I left this ingredient out this time. I know that Costco carries it, so I put it on my next Costco shopping list. This being said, yes, I am going to cook this soup again and again because it is really delicious.
