My whole family loves (!) ramen, so when I saw this recipe on allrecpies.com knew I needed to give this one a try. The only thing to know is that if you make this, it's not going to be a quick dinner. It'll take about an hour, which is fine but doesn't always work on nights with soccer practices. That being said, it was a huge hit in the Delaney Test Kitchen, even thought we ate a bit later than usual. I skipped the egg for us on the trial run, but I put out all of our hot sauces on the table so that everyone could customize their bowls. It was Yum!
Chicken Ramen Bowl
I found this recipe in the December/January issue of Allrecipes.com, and it looked liked it checked all the boxes for the Fam so I gave it a try in the Delaney Test Kitchen. And by that I mean it was only supposed to take 20 minutes total. What!? This one really was so easy, and the sauce was delish. The red pepper flakes at the end really give it the flavor it is missing otherwise, which is great because then everyone can regulate their desired level heat for themselves. We were still at the table when I was asked to add to to our regular rotation. For me, that is a win!
Bulgogi-Style Skillet Chicken
1. For sauce: Whisk together white and light green parts of the green onion, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, sesame oil, sesame seeds, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until marinade is smooth.
2. Cook and stir chicken and marinade together in a large skillet over medium-high heat until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
3. Divide rice and chicken evenly among four bowls and drizzle with sauce from the skillet. Garnish with reserved dark green onion. Serve with crushed red pepper.
