Packed with the Asian flavours of soy sauce, five-spice and ginger, this warming ramen is brimming with succulent chicken and seasonal mushrooms, making for a delicious autumnal dish. What's more, it's ready in under 30 minutes!

  1. Rub the chicken with the oil and 1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice; season. In a frying pan, fry the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side, until cooked through with no pink meat showing. Remove from the pan and set aside to rest, then thickly slice.
  2. Meanwhile, in a pestle and mortar, grind the ginger to a thick paste. In a large pan, combine the stock,ginger paste, Worcestershire and soy sauces, garlic, miso, mushrooms (reserving enoki for the final 2 minutes) and the remaining five-spice. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 7 minutes.
  3. Divide the carrot, greens and noodles between 4 bowls. Ladle over the broth and top with the chicken. Scatter over the spring onions and chilli.
