Honey Lemon Chicken Ramen

Like many other children, mine love Top Ramen. Attempting to keep them healthy and well nourished, I only let them consume Top Ramen when they are sick or when it is really cold and they are begging for soup. In an attempt to create a more nutritious ramen, I decided to try my hand at a homemade version.

Needless to say, they loved this version a whole lot more…and to my detriment they now beg for this instead of the quick microwave Top Ramen. I will definitely be attempting more homemade ramen in the very near future.

  • Wok


  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

  • 1-2 large lemons juiced
  • cup Mike's Hot Honey
  • ¾ cup honey

  • In a large wok, (or skillet), drizzle the avocado oil and add in the purple onion. Saute for a few minutes until nice and browned.
  • Add in the garlic and ginger and saute for another minute or two. Then add in the ground chicken and saute until thoroughly cooked with the onion, garlic, and ginger.
  • While the onions, ginger, and garlic saute; in a large bowl combine the ingredients of the marinade except the cornstarch and ¼ of a cup of the chicken stock. Whisk together until completely combined. In a separate cup combine the cornstarch and reserved chicken stock. Whisk vigorously until they are combined. Add into the rest of the marinade sauce, whisk together again until combined.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken mix in the wok, add in the green onions and stir until the sauce has thickened.
