Doria is a comforting rice gratin dish in Japan with vegetable and/or protein cooked in a white or tomato sauce poured over steamed rice then baked. This version includes chicken in a creamy umami nori tsukudani and dashi white sauce.
- 3 pieces (~160g) chicken breast filet (cut into thin strips)
- 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 Tbsp powdered cheese (or pinch of salt)
- Handful shredded cheese
- Place the butter, flour, milk, nori tsukudani, dashi and salt in a frying pan over medium heat and stir until the ingredients have dissolved and the sauce becomes sticky.
- Separately, mix the cooked rice with butter and mentsuyu and spread in a baking dish. Top with the sauce from step 1.
- In a bowl, coat the chicken strips with mayonnaise and powdered cheese and place on top the sauce and rice from step 2. Cover with a generous handful of shredded cheese and bake in an oven at 220℃ for about 20 mins. Top with shredded nori if deserved before serving.
