  2. Once the chicken is cooled, shred it into bite-size pieces with fingers or a fork.  Add the chicken back to the broth and place the chicken and broth in a storage container and store in the fridge.

Cook the meal

  1. When you are ready to cook your meal, take your 'kit' out of the fridge.

  2. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F and spray a large sheet pan with Coconut oil.  As you make each component in the pan, you will add it to the sheet pan and keep warm in the oven until ready to plate.

  3. Soup: To a preheated pot, add the coconut oil, scallion whites, ginger, and garlic.  Stir and saute for 1-2 minutes, making sure it doesn't burn.

  4. Add the broth with the Chicken and simmer for 10 minutes.

  5. Eggs: Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat to a simmer and then carefully lower eggs into water one at a time using a slotted spoon.  Cook 5-7 minutes, with 5 leaving yolk runny and 7 being firm.  Transfer eggs to a bowl of cold water and chill while you prepare the rest of the meal.

  6. Cabbage: To a pre-heated large skillet or wok, add 1 tsp coconut oil or spray the bottom of the pan with spray oil.  Then add the sliced cabbage with ginger and garlic, plus sesame oil and soy sauce.  Stir to combine and let the cabbage sear.  After 2 minutes, stir again and let cook for 4 minutes until just starting to wilt, but still crunchy.  Transfer the cabbage to the sheet pan and put in the oven to keep warm.

  7. To the same hot pan, add the shredded carrots, soy sauce and sesame seeds.  Saute for 4-5 minutes until seared and slightly soft.  Transfer the carrots to the sheet pan in the oven to keep warm.

  8. Add the mushrooms to the hot pan with a pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper to sear them, adding a little coconut oil if needed.  Cook for 5 minutes stirring so that seared on both sides.  Transfer the mushrooms to the sheet pan in the oven to keep warm.

  9. Ramen Noodles: Last, to the same pot used for the eggs, now boil more water and cook the ramen noodles according to package instructions.  Drain and then get ready to assemble!

  10. Assemble your Rockin' Ramen Bowls: Add Noodles to the bottom of the bowls, then add broth with with chicken.  Next, top with cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, half an egg, sprinkle of sesame seeds and scallion greens.  ENJOY!
