Japanese For Dinner?

So as most of you know I love to cook new things!! I really enjoying finding a random recipe on the internet and just making it. So fun! Well, as you can imagine moving to Japan has really changed my recipes a bit:) So, I thought I would share with you every once in a while a recipe I have learned while over here and maybe a few of you would be interested in trying it yourself! So, here is my first post on Japanese cooking!!!


Oyako means parents and children in Japanese, and oyakodon is a traditional Japanese rice bowl topped with simmered chicken and egg. (

Yield: 4 servings

* 4 cup steamed rice
* 3/4 lb chicken thighs or chicken breasts, bite-size pieces
* 1 onion, thinly sliced
* 1 2/3 cups soup stock (dashi)
* 7 Tbsp soy sauce
* 4 Tbsp mirin
* 3 Tbsp sugar

1. Cook steamed rice.
2. Put dashi soup stock in a large skillet and put on medium heat.
3. Add soy sauce, mirin, and sugar in the soup.
4. Put chicken and simmer on low heat for a few minutes.
5. Add onion slices and simmer for a few more minutes.
6. Lightly beat eggs in a bowl.
7. Bring the soup to a boil, and pour the eggs over chicken and onion.
8. Turn the heat down to low and cover with a lid.
