With all those leftover Swiss sauce, this recipe is just perfect. The chicken thighs were simply delicious. It is hard not to be, because the leftover Swiss sauce was packed with chicken flavors already. With some fresh green onions, onions and garlic, the chicken thighs were extra amazing. The ginger topping may seems a bit funny, but after they were cooked by the oil. The ginger and green onion were aromatic and flavorful. It was tasty to mix with the noodles. A little bit goes a long way. Give this recipe a try, and you will always want to marinate your chicken like this.

- For a faster way to minced ginger, I grated the ginger with a grater.
- If you don’t like ramen, you can use steamed rice. I am sure that will still be amazing.
- You can find good ramen in Japanese or Chinese supermarket or online. I used Nissin demae ramen.
