Few reader feedbacks:

“Made this today. This recipe is so simple yet so full of flavor. This is ultimate comfort food. Instead of salt I used powder chicken bouillon. Otherwise I followed the recipe. I’m going to save this recipe. It will be my go to for quick delicious ramen noodles.”

“Find it calls for just slightly too much butter. Maybe 2 Tbsp instead of 3 next time. Otherwise, it’s deeeeeelicious and easy!”

“Perfeecttt!! It came out exactly like the picture! I added a bit too much fresh parsley tho. I would suggest having it with lemonade or an acidic drink”

“This was really good. Great flavor. My only problem is I hate throwing away those seasoning packets from the Ramen noodles. I wish I could find something to use them in.”

“It was really good, didn’t have any parsley so I just didn’t add any.”

“This was really good. I liked it a lot.”


A quick run through of the ingredients to make this ramen:

  1. Ramen – Use chicken flavored ramen noodles ( we are not gonna use the seasoning packet).
  2. Butter – unsalted. If using salted butter then reduce salt when adding to the chicken stock
  3. Garlic – A good amount of finely minced garlic. Love garlic? You will love this Soft Garlic Knots, Pita chips from scratch or this garlic bread grilled cheese sandwich.
  4. Chicken stock – I used 33% reduced sodium chicken stock. If using regular sodium or no sodium chicken stock then adjust salt accordingly. If you have leftover chicken stock, then you could try using it in Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken Soup or Spicy Cilantro Lime Rice with Black Beans and Corn
  5. Seasoning – Salt, pepper and fresh/dried parsley

How to make best ramen noodles?

Step-1: Add 2 tablespoons butter and finely minced garlic into a cold pan or skillet.

Step-2: Place pan over medium heat, cook stirring continuously until garlic begins to get golden. Take extra care in not letting garlic get darker in color.

Step-3: Add chicken stock, salt and pepper. Let it come to a boil.

Step-4: Add ramen noodles, stir every 20 – 30 seconds, so that the noodles cooks evenly. Cook until most of the moisture evaporates.

Step-5: Take pan off heat and stir in additional tablespoon butter and parsley. This addition of butter at the end makes the ramen tastes luxurious and buttery.

Serve hot with cheesy broccoli and garlic bread for side dish.

First, let me just comment thanks for saying "ramen noodles." Ramen is a two part dish, the noodles *and* the soup. If soup isn't involved, it isn't ramen, it's ramen noodles. See too many people calling soupless noodles "ramen." 😬 Second, I do have one nitpick, though. Seeing as you don't use the flavor packet, there is no reason to list a flavor of ramen. The noodles themselves have zero flavor, so it's redundant to specify "chicken ramen" when they don't become "chicken ramen" until you use the flavor packet. You should have simply written "2 packages ramen, any flavor." :-P

This recipe is delicious! I didn't have any chicken stock though so I ended up dissolving the chicken sachet in some water as a substitute, and it worked great. Also, I'm not a huge fan of really soft ramen. I managed to get my "stock" to reduce maybe 1 cm and my ramen noodles were so soft that they were about to fall apart! I took the soggy noodles out and added a new brick of ramen which I cooked to my liking and it was perfect. No disrespect to the recipe at all as lots of people like very soft ramen and I'm sure it would have worked out better if I used proper chicken stock. Happy cooking!

Hi Tayla, Glad you loved the ramen, Maria

This is a very simple and tasty recipe. It is very forgiving on ingredients. I get plain ramen from an international market (yes there is such a thing) and tweaked the amount of chicken stock. I also used jar garlic and it worked great. I use a pressure cooker, so after adding the liquid and ramen I pop the lid on, bring to high pressure and cook for 2-3 minutes, depending on the firmness of the noodle preferred. Quick release, let it sit for a short while to thicken and you are all set. Delicious and thank you for sharing.

This was amazing and super easy! Took the advice from another review and used only 2 tablespoon of butter! Definitely deserves it name “crazy good garlic butter ramen noodles”
