Ingredients

What came first -the chicken (oya) or the egg (ko)? Here’s a Japanese rice bowl featuring both!

Let's start cooking!

Water and sugar poured into metal bowl

Step 1 - Mix oyakodon sauce

  • In a mixing bowl, add stock, 40 ml soy sauce, 40 ml mirin and 40 g sugar. Mix well and set aside.
Sauce poured into frying pan with onions

Step 2 - Cook oyako ingredients

  • In a pan on medium heat, add 1 tbsp vegetable oil and 1 tsp sesame oil. When hot, add onion and ginger. Stir-fry for 20 seconds.
  • Add chicken thigh, oyakodon sauce and simmer for 2 minutes, or until chicken is cooked.
  • Drizzle eggs into pan, then cover and cook for another minute.
These one-bowl meals are generally called donburi. They consist of its namesake topping (chicken/salmon/unagi) and rice (don). In fact, the kanji 丼is read donburion its own and simply donwhen it’s used as part of the meal's name

Let's plate and serve!
