Slow Cooker Chicken Ramen Noodles Recipe #slowcooker #crockpot

Truth be told, my mind has been elsewhere a lot lately.

On Lt. Dan. On the kids. On our travel plans for the year. On a couple of my neighbors. On our 2015 goals. Yet, my mind has not been on cooking.


I think that’s why my slow cooker(s) has become my new BFF in 2015. I’m finding myself busier in the evenings than ever before. However, we still need to eat, of course, and we want to eat well.

Slow Cooking has been a brilliant solution this winter.

Slow Cooker Chicken Ramen Noodles

I’ve discovered you can do so much more with your slow cooker than simmer chili or pot roast. I’ve also discovered that not every dish that comes out of a slow cooker has to be brown and mushy.

See this gorgeous fresh bowl of chicken ramen noodles?

I made it in my crockpot. (That was a brag.)

How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Ramen Noodles Recipe #slowcooker #crockpot

Not only did I make the ramen noodle soup in the slow cooker, I soft-boiled eggs in it to garnish the chicken ramen noodles as well. (Bigger brag.)

Believe it or not, you can simmer your ramen noodle soup broth, poach your chicken, and soft-boil your eggs all at the same time in your slow cooker.

I just make sure to add an extra egg to the crockpot, so I have a tester at about the 2 hour mark. If the egg is perfectly soft-boiled, I remove them and add the noodles.

If it’s not quick ready, I give the rest of the eggs a few more minutes in the hot broth.

How To: Slow Cooker Chicken Ramen Noodles Recipe #slowcooker #crockpot

Ramen Noodles that you find in the grocery store are simply wheat noodles that have been dehydrated for quick cooking. They are perfect for crockpot cooking, because you can slow cook everything else, then pop them in at the end to hydrate.

You can use fancy ramen noodles like those at the top of the photo, or use the cheap ramen soup packs, and just throw out the seasoning.

You could also use regular dried wheat pasta as well, but I find it tends to make the broth murky. If you want to use it anyway, make sure the broth is simmering, stir the pasta well, then cover and simmer for the last 18-25 minutes.

Once the ramen noodles are hydrated, the chicken ramen noodle soup is ready!

Ladle the ramen noodles and broth into bowls. Slice the chicken breasts. Then top with the mushrooms, chicken slices, fresh spinach, jalapeno slices, scallions, and the soft-boiled eggs.

    When our minds are elsewhere, slow cookers definitely save the day. I never would have thought to make these ramen noodles in the slow cooker and soft boiling the eggs in there, genius!

    Homemade ramen has been on my list of things to make for a long time. With the ability to use a slow cooker it just might finally happen!

    Making your buffalo chicken soup for the 3rd time right now. It’s a huge hit. This soup is next. Do you have a slow cooker you love. I bought a new one and it cooks too hot I think.

  18. Trishaposted March 18, 2015 at 7:03 pm Reply

    Trying this recipe now and just completed the first step. You said 2-2 1/2 hours on low for the chicken to cook. I usually have to cook chicken up to 4 hours in a slow cooker. Are you sure the time you suggested is enough?

    Thanks for the great recipe idea–looking forward to eating it this evening!

      Hi Trisha! All slow cookers vary. I have three and they all run at slightly different temperatures. My “moderate” slow cooker took 2 hours to cook the chicken breasts. Have you checked one of them?

    • Ashleyposted January 24, 2016 at 7:40 pm Reply

      I had the sane issue. I cracked a test egg and it wasn’t even close to being done. I cranked it up to high, hopefully that works. 

  19. Joeposted April 26, 2015 at 4:20 pm Reply

    Am I right in thinking that you don’t use the seasoning packet from the ramen, just the noodles themselves? Noticed you didn’t make any mention of that and thinking the broth should already be plenty flavorful with the garlic, ginger, scallions, etc. and leaving those packets out would also make the sodium levels much more reasonable.

    I’m cooking this as I type, so hoping I’ll get a reply quickly. ;) 

    • Sommerposted April 26, 2015 at 11:26 pm Reply

      Hi Joe, Sorry if this is too late. No, you don’t need a seasoning packet for this recipe. Happy Cooking!

      • Joeposted April 27, 2015 at 10:34 am

        Thanks, Sommer. I decided to go without the packet and was more than happy with the result. The only issue I ran into was that using Low was not enough with my crock pot. I have a Rival brand stoneware crock pot, and my tester egg after 2 hours was still raw. I set the crock pot to high and the eggs and chicken were good after another hour and a half (and could have probably been 15 minutes less). So next time will run on high from the get-go.

        Apart from that delay, the final product was fantastic. Both of my kids loved it, and all three of us were stuffed after one bowl. We all packed the leftovers for our lunch today. This is definitely something we’ll make again.
