One of the things I missed most about the Midwest was thunderstorms.☔

Obviously, it rained in Seattle, but thunderstorms were few and far between. Liiike whenever it stormed, it was big news the next day at work. lololol😂

That being said, I never really felt we got those cold, rainy, spring days where you wanted to curl up with a blanket and watch movies all day while listening to the thunder rumble in the background.

Now that we’re back in the Midwest in the spring, I’m anxiously awaiting all the storms.

Can I be real with you for a second? While I am completely, utterly, absolutely head over heels in love with Mexican food and Cinco de Mayo. . .we actually celebrated it on May 4th, so on May 5th, we were actually eating theseSlow Cooker Ramen Noodles.🙈

While Mexican food may be my all time favorite for now, Asian inspired foods are slowly creeping their way to the top.

Crockpot Thai Chicken Curry? Gimme.

Roasted Red Chili Tilapia? I want it all.

Easy Mongolian Beef? Oh heck yes!

Now, we’ve gotSlow Cooker Ramen Noodles. Also, can we talk about how I always put some form of egg on like half of the Asian recipes on SMTY? Ummmm hellooooo Thai Peanut Noodles, One Pot Asian Noodle Soup, and Easy Asian Noodles.😂There’s just something about Asian flavors with an ooey egg yolk that just speaks to me.

These ramen noodles are no exception and let me tell you, I have three main reasons why I seriously ♡ this recipe.

Slow Cooker Ramen Noodles Recipe - w/ Chicken (4)#1: My crockpot is involved. ‘Nough said.

#2: Asian flavors. Liiiike I’m a teeny bit obsessed.

#3: SO. DARN. EASY. yet so ridiculously full of flavor.

Wanna hear how easy, because I’m about ready to tell you alllll about it….

What kind of seasonings do you put in ramen noodles?

You’d be surprised that such a flavor bomb recipe has very simple seasonings: just ground ginger and black pepper!

What are the ingredients in chicken ramen noodles?

Other than ginger and black pepper, the ingredients are:

  • Chicken breasts
  • Yellow onion
  • Garlic
  • Chicken broth
  • Soy sauce
  • Seasoned rice vinegar
  • Unsweetened soy milk
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Noodles

What kind of noodles do you use for ramen?

Today we’re using the dry packets of ramen noodles – the kind with the seasoning packets! Easy. Peasy. And easy to find!

How do you make the best ramen noodles?

It’s WAY easier than you think and while this may not be the most “traditional” 😉 , I promise you, these are the best!

Place all the ingredients (minus the noodles) into your crockpot and cook for about 3 hours. Throw the noodles in for 5 minutes, and wham bam thank you ma’am, you’re done!

That’s it! Super simple, but I’m telling you, packed with flavor.

It’s salty from the soy, a little tangy from the vinegar, plus you can’t go wrong with a little ginger and black pepper. It’s full of tender chicken and noodles and I’m telling you, you MUST top this with #allthetoppings.

My favorites are thinly sliced jalapeno, a runny soft boiled egg, cilantro, and green onions.
