I love spicy noodles at the best of times, but holy smokes – these are everything a person could wish for! This shortcut ramen keeps the cook time low but the flavour is full-on high. Stick with darker chicken meat to keep things succulent and juicy.

Notes:

– Kimchi is a spicy and sour fermented Korean side dish often made from cabbage. Find it in the fridge section of Asian grocery stores.

– Gochujang is a Korean chilli paste available from Asian grocery stores. If unavailable simply leave it out of the recipe and add a teaspoon of sweet paprika for added colour and chilli flakes for additional spice.
