A one-meal dish using ramen and chicken soup.

These 2 chicken noodle soup recipes may share the same name but they are totally different.
Use the 2 recipes as a base and change the dish by using different types of noodles. There are so many types: fresh egg noodle, dried egg noodle, thick or thin rice noodles or flat rice noodles.
Parboil the fresh noodles for about 2 minutes. Parboiling soften the noodles, wash away excess oil, starch and dirt.
Cook dried noodles until soft or el dente. They don't take as long as pasta.
To keep the noodles springy, dunk them quickly in cold water after draining to stop the cooking.
