Really good Japanese ramen is an art form that any visit behind the curtains of a ramen joint in Tokyo will prove. The dish which dates back to the 19th century is based on a rich flavoured meat or fish broth, wheat noodles and toppings like thinly sliced pork, boiled eggs, nori seaweed and scallions. Unless you dedicate a lifetime to hand making noodles and perfecting your broth, making it at home will always be a cheats job, particularly if you are making it for a weeknight meal.


For the chicken:
4 chicken thighs, skinless & boneless
50ml low sodium soy sauce
50ml mirin
1 tbsp sesame oil
