Oyako-Don!

Hi Guys!
Today I did a random food experiment with my boyfriend, Joy. It’s a dish that has our favourite components! Chicken thigh, Eggs and Onions! Joy and I love simple dishes that tastes awesome! Not very into the gourmet dishes. Comfortable to the stomach, and easy to prepare is the way to go for us! So I am just going to tell you a bit about how we prepared our Oyako-don dish!

Ingredients (serves 2):
200g Chicken thigh/breast (Thighs are always the best for a tenderness feel)
1 Onion (chopped)
2 Eggs
1 Spring Onions (chopped)
1 tablespoon Mirin (Japanese Rice Vinegar)
1 Tablespoon Soya Sauce
1 Chicken stock/Dashi stock (I used Chicken stock instead of the normal Dashi, but it tastes quite good anyway!)
Rice serving

Preparation:

1. Chop the chicken thigh into bite sized pieces.
2. Melt the stock with a bit of hot water on the pan on low heat.
3. Add Mirin and Soya Sauce into the heated pan with the melted stock (there might be clumps, but just keep stirring it until it completely melts.
4. Add the chicken pieces onto the pan
5. Add the chopped onions into the pan when the chicken is half cooked
6. Add the beaten eggs into the pan after the chicken and the onion are fully cooked (soft onions & cooked chicken)
7. Let the beaten eggs be half cooked, then move the pan off the hob. This is normally how Oyako-don is cooked, with runny egg, but if you prefer cooked egg, then just let the egg cook a bit longer.
8. Add the contents of the pan onto a bowl of rice
9. Add chopped Spring Onions to garnish!

So guys, this is the first time I did this kind of “Cooking Directions” thing. The pictures are somewhat lacking. However, this is just a sharing of what I have been up to during my holiday!
Stay tuned for MORE random stuff! 😀
