From the Test Kitchen

For a summery take on a Japanese favorite—ramen—we’re preparing a brothless version with plenty of colorful seasonal produce. We’re dressing fresh noodles in an umami-rich combination of soy sauce and kombu (a type of dried seaweed), then serving it all with sautéed corn and a vibrant duo of marinated cucumber and tomatoes. (Your tomatoes may be yellow or red.) Shredded chicken tossed with miso completes each bowl with another layer of umami flavor.

Cook & shred the chicken:
1 Cook & shred the chicken:

Fill a small pot with water; add a pinch of salt and heat to boiling on high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and cook 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer the cooked chicken to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, using 2 forks, carefully shred into bite-sized pieces.

While the chicken cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes; place in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Peel and finely chop the ginger. Remove and discard the corn husks and silks. Cut the corn kernels off the cob; discard the cob. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, sesame oil, half the mirin, and ⅓ cup of water.
