Chef’s Tips for Mastering Your Chicken Katsu Ramen Game

Want to take your chicken katsu ramen from tasty to amazing? Here are some chef-approved tricks:

Broth Secrets Revealed: Simmering the broth for a longer time unlocks a deeper flavor profile. Using high-quality ingredients also makes a big difference.

Chicken Katsu Like a Pro: Pounding the chicken ensures even cooking. Hot oil is key for that golden-brown crust; don’t overdo the breading to avoid sogginess.

Noodle Know-How: Follow the package instructions for cooking the noodles, or go slightly under for an al dente texture.

Assembly Artistry: First, arrange the noodles and broth, then top it off with your crispy chicken katsu and chosen toppings. This layering ensures the perfect flavor and texture for every bite.
