Oyako Donburi

This is my version of the family recipe for oyako donburi. It's more of a soupy meal than the traditional rice bowl with stuff. It's very simple, fast, and delicious. The recipe quantities don't make a lot but should be good for 2-3 people. The veggies add depth to the broth. The daikon is especially good.


1 box chicken broth (for best use homemade)

1 tbs dashi powder

1 equal amount of water (or a little more)

1 whole chicken breast or equivalent thighs deboned & chopped bite-sized pieces
(I save the bones to make my own stock)

¼- ½ cup shoyu

6-8 eggs, beaten

garnish: finely chopped green onions and/or toasted nori crumbled

veggies: I usually add a little water chestnut sliced, fresh shiitake mushrooms sliced, and/or diakon sliced into matchsticks. Sometimes I add a little of the daikon greens or thinly sliced cabbage for color.

Heat chicken broth, dashi, and water) to a boil, toss a whole green onion or two (take out before serving), add chicken and veggies, then turn down heat to simmer. When chicken is just cooked, taste broth and add more stock or water or dashi depending on your taste. Bring soup back to boil. Stir ½ cup hot broth into eggs then pour eggs in to pot stirring until cooked. Add shoyu to taste.

Serve over hot Japanese rice. Garnish w/green onions and/or nori.
