Oyakodon (lit. “parent-and-child rice bowl”) is a popular variety of donburi (rice bowl) that makes for a perfect quick and easy yet satisfying meal. It gets its unique name from its two central ingredients: chicken (parent) and egg (child). Both the chicken and egg are simmered in umami-rich dashi then served on top of a hot bowl of rice.
- 2 bowls of cooked rice
- 1 piece (280g) chicken thigh
- 1 package Kyushu Dashi Hot Pot Soup
- 150ml water

- 3 eggs
- Cut the chicken thigh into bite-sized pieces.

- Separately, beat the eggs in a bowl and once the chicken and onions have cooked, pour in the beaten eggs.
