  • Cook the eggs. In the meantime, bring a small saucepan of water to a boil and add the eggs. Boil for 8 minutes, then strain and allow to cool in cold water. Then peel and set aside.
  • Cooking the noodles. Open the lid and remove the chicken to a cutting board. Press the Saute function key and bring the stock to a simmer. Add the miso paste, ramen noodles and Asian greens and cook for 2 minutes or until noodles are ready. Turn the Instant Pot off.
