Instant Pot Easy Gluten-Free Chicken Ramen

Who else grew up on Top Ramen? We would take uncooked packages to school, break up the ramen in the package, sprinkle it with that special seasoning packet and eat it raw! Good times. 

As an adult I realize that Top Ramen definitely isn’t the healthiest choice. The number one ingredient is enriched wheat flour. An ingredient that should be a no for everyone but it’s an absolute ‘no’ for those with the MTHFR gene mutation. You can read my article about that here!

Then there’s palm oil, caramel color, hydrolyzed corn and soy protein (GMO!). Along with maltodextrin, natural and artificial flavors (nothing natural about them!), and TBHQ! Unfortunately, as budget friendly as this product is, it should absolutely not be put inside of the human body.

Instant Pot Easy Gluten-Free Chicken Ramen

Serves 4-6
Print Recipe


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 blocks brown rice ramen noodles, each block is two servings (see note)
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons Thai Kitchen red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • 5 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 carrots, cut into ribbons

Optional Toppings

  • sesame seeds
  • cilantro
  • green onion
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • soft-boiled eggs


  • Preheat your Instant Pot using the SAUTE function (normal heat) on the display panel. While the pot is preheat toss the chicken with salt, pepper, and sesame oil.
  • When the display reads HOT add the olive oil and chicken. Stir every couple minutes until the chicken is almost cooked through, about 5 minutes. 
  • Add the uncooked ramen noodles, green onions, red curry paste, coconut aminos, fresh ginger, chicken bone broth, minced onion, and garlic powder.  Place the lid on the pot, make sure the pressure valve is in the sealing position.
  • Using the display panel press the CANCEL button. Select the MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK button, HIGH PRESSURE, and use the +/- buttons until the display says 1 minute. 
  • When the pot beeps to let you know it's finished cooking move the vent valve to the VENTING position to administer a quick release.
  • Stir the carrot ribbons in and serve topped with a jammy soft-boiled egg, sesame seeds, cilantro, green onion, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. 


  1. To make soft-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, place 1 cup of water in the bottom of the pot. Place your eggs in a steamer basket or on top of the stainless steel trivet and cook for 3 minutes on LOW PRESSURE. Quick release and immediately put the eggs in an ice bath for 5 minutes before peeling. 
  2. You can also use a low carb noodle like Palm heart noodles! Because Palm heart noodles are precooked don’t stir them in until the end when you stir in the carrots.
  3. You can add a third block of ramen if you're cooking for more than 4 without doubling any ingredients.

  1. Where can you find brown rice ramen noodles? I’ve never seen them in the stores. This sounds wonderful and would love to make this asap! Thank you! ❤️🍜

    1. Hi Alisa,
      Thanks so much for reaching out! I purchase our brown rice ramen noodles at Costco, but you can also get them at Whole Foods, online, as well as some Walmarts. I buy the Organic Millet and Brown Rice Ramen Noodles by Lotus Foods at Costco and the packet comes with 12 in it. I hope that helps. Can’t wait to hear what you think of the recipe!

    1. Hi Shelia,
      I am not sure what type of chicken you used, or what exactly made the chicken tough but I would suggest maybe using dark meat chicken next time. Dark meat chicken is often more juicy and tends to holds moisture well.Hope that helps.

  2. 5 stars
    Fantastic tasting ramen. Brittnay you outdid yourself with this one. Excellent flavors and it tasted like it made in a ramen shop.

  3. My son is obsessed with ramen so I will definitely make this but where do I get the brown rice ramen noodles? At a regularly grocery store?

  4. This looks so delicious and I cannot wait to try it! I do have a question though. My family tries to avoid any vegetable and seed oils if we can help it. Would coconut or avocado oil be an okay substitute for the sesame oil?

  5. What can I sub for the chicken to make this vegetarian or can I just leave it out but add the sesame oil in with all the other ingredients?

    1. Hi Rosa,
      Thanks so much for reaching out. You can leave the chicken out and add the sesame oil in with all the other ingredients or of course you could use any other source of protein that you’d like.
