How to make this recipe

  1. Make the sauce

    In a medium saucepan, heat the oil over medium high heat until hot, then stir in the ginger, and garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes. In a bowl, stir together the stock, sugar, soy sauce, cornstarch, vinegar, and samba oelek. Whisk the stock mixture into the saucepan and bring to a boil, whisking, until thickened. Reserve the sauce.

  2. Make the chicken

    Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Toss the chicken with the marinade. In a medium pot, heat the oil to 375°F. Cook the chicken in batches, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes per batch. Transfer the chicken as cooked to paper towels to drain, and then toss with the sauce.

  3. Cook the ramen in a pot of boiling water until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain the ramen and toss with the chicken and sauce. Transfer the chicken and noodles to a serving platter and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and scallions. Serve.
