Oyakodon (Chicken and Egg Bowl) 親子丼

Oyakodon (Chicken & Egg Bowl) | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com

The literal translation of Oyakodon (親子丼) means “parent-and-child rice bowl.”  The typical ingredients include chicken (as in parent), egg (as in child), and onions.  The ingredients are simmered together in a sauce then served on top of a bowl of rice.  It’s a very common Donburi dish and served at most traditional Japanese diners.

I first learned how to cook the dish during home-making class in middle school (although this recipe is not from the textbook).  It’s very easy to cook so I hope Oyakodon will be your go-to recipe when you are busy.
