ingredients

For Sauce
1 ½ cups chicken stock
¼ cup Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Kikkoman® Sesame Oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoons grated ginger

1 tablespoon Kikkoman® Sesame Oil
1 pound chicken breasts, diced
1 cup pea pods
⅔ cup julienned carrots
½ cup cut baby corn, drained
2 packages (3 ounces each) dried ramen noodles
¼ cup chopped cilantro (for garnish)

directions

  1. Whisk together ingredients for sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in pressure cooker on “Sauté” setting. Blot chicken pieces dry with paper towel. When sesame oil is sizzling, add chicken and brown for 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Press “Cancel” and move chicken to one side of pot.  Add vegetables on top of chicken and add ramen noodles to the other side of pot. Pour sauce over noodles, making sure to saturate with sauce. Lock lid and close vent valve. Press “Manual” setting for 4 minutes.
  4. When timer goes off, allow pressure to release for a few minutes before opening vent valve. When all pressure is released, open lid and toss noodles, vegetables, and chicken to coat with sauce. Serve hot, garnished with chopped cilantro.

Note: if some noodles aren’t cooked through, turn pressure cooker to “Sauté” setting and toss noodles using tongs. Cover with lid and cook 4-5 minutes longer until noodles are tender.

THE STORY OF SOY SAUCE

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
