Do you feel like something tasty but lazy tonight?
Give my recipe for ‘Oyako Don‘ from my book Sachie’s Kitchen a go. It’s Donburi-style meaning “one bowl serving” – you just need a pot to cook this dish, and one bowl “Donburi” to serve – now that’s easy! Oh and if you’re wondering what the “oyako” means; in Japanese “Oya” means parent, and “Ko” means child and hence the name for this chicken and egg dish!
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
1 bowl of cooked rice
1/4 onion, sliced
1/2 chicken thigh, cut into small pieces
1/2 tsp Dashi Powder
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Mirin
1/2 tsp Cooking Sake
1 egg, lightly beaten
Spring onion, chopped
Shredded Nori (seaweed)
- Add water, dashi, soy sauce, mirin and cooking sake into a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium, add onion and chicken and cook for couple of minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
- Put cooked rice in a serving bowl and set aside.
- When the chicken is cooked, bring the heat to high. Pour the lightly beaten egg and add the spring onion to the pot, cover with a lid and cook for 30sec. Turn off the heat and slide the chicken & egg on top of the rice.
- Garnish with shredded nori before you serve.
