  • 2-3 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled, cut in quarters
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled, smashed
  • 1/2 yellow onion, peeled
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 4 packages (3 ounces each) instant ramen noodles


  • Fresh scallions, thinly sliced
  • Soft boiled eggs
  • Nori sheets
  • Corn
  • Bamboo shoots
  • Cooked veggies
  • Citrus zest


  • Large Bowl
  • Slotted Spoon
  • Small Bowl
  • Step 1

    Place the chicken, ginger, garlic, onion, 1/4 cup soy sauce, and water in the pot. Stir to combine. Assemble pressure lid, making sure the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position. 

  • Step 2

    Select PRESSURE and set to HIGH. Set time to 22 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin. 

  • Step 3

    When pressure cooking is complete, quick release the pressure by moving the pressure release valve to the VENT position. Carefully remove lid when unit has finished releasing pressure. 

  • Step 4

    Remove the chicken and set in a large bowl to cool. Use a strainer or slotted spoon to remove the garlic, onion, and ginger and discard. 

  • Step 5

    Once the chicken is cool enough to handle, remove skin and shred the meat off the bones. Discard the bones. 

  • Step 6

    In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons soy sauce and sugar. Combine mixture with the shredded meat, then store meat in a bowl wrapped with plastic or other airtight vessel to keep warm. 

  • Step 7

    Select SEAR/SAUTÉ and set to HIGH. Select START/STOP to begin. Bring liquid to a boil. Add the Dijon and whisk vigorously to emulsify the broth. Press the START/STOP button to cancel SEAR/SAUTÉ. 

  • Step 8

    Place noodles into individual bowls. Divide the hot broth among the bowls and cover each bowl with plastic wrap for 3 to 4 minutes, in order to soften noodles. 

  • Step 9

    Once noodles are softened, remove the plastic and add meat and toppings before serving.
