The best Asian ramen noodle soup is made with a Korean gochujang chili paste in a soy sauce broth. This Korean Chicken Noodle Soup is stacked in mason jars with instant ramen noodles, shredded carrots, celery, Sara Lee® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast, snow peas, and green onions.
Instant ramen noodles were a staple in my home growing up. They are incredibly versatile in a variety of recipes and these mason jar soups require just a few minutes to prepare. With the addition of hot water, ramen noodles cook in three minutes.

HOW TO MAKE KOREAN CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
Head to your local grocery deli and
order 1 pound
Sara Lee® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast. You’ll also be able to pick up 1-pint mason jars as well as shredded carrots, celery stalks, green onions, snow peas, ramen noodles, Korean chili paste, and soy sauce.
Start by breaking the ramen noodles to fit into the mason jars. Next, add the shredded carrots, and diced celery. Dice the deli meat and add a layer on top. Next, add a few snow peas to each mason jar. Give the celery leaves a rough chop and add it to the top with green onions. Screw the mason jar lid on and refrigerate until it’s ready to be packed for lunch. In the morning, carry an insulated thermal with the hot Asian broth. At lunchtime, pour the hot water Korean broth into the jar. It’s ready to eat when the noodles are soft; about 3 minutes.
