We go inside the kitchen with Chef Rika as she shows us how to make a tasty, Tokyo-inspired dish

It seems like we always get stuck making the same recipes over and over again because those restaurant-quality dishes look too complicated to cook at home.

However, Chef Rika has made a name for herself showing others how to cook easy, authentic Japanese recipes in the comfort of their own kitchen.

On her show Dining with the Chef, she shows us how to make tasty chilled Ramen noodle with steamed chicken.

The dish takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and cook, and is good for two people.

It’s perfect for surprising that special someone with a great dinner and showing off those chef-like skills.

The healthy recipe calls for ramen noodles topped with steamed chicken in a zesty soy sauce with fresh vegetables and herbs. It pairs nicely with miso soup or spicy edamame.
