This Japanese chicken and egg recipe is called Oyakodon. It means "mother and child" and is served on steamed rice. The steaming of the chicken and egg in the tasty broth makes the eggs silky and smooth and everything is brought together in a delicate harmony.
  Chicken thighs 2 Medium, diced
  Onion 1⁄2 Medium, sliced
  Eggs 1 Large, beaten
  Green onions 1 Medium, chopped finely
For the base
  Dashi 300 Milliliter
  Mirin 150 Milliliter
  Soy sauce 100 Milliliter
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon

1. In a heated pan add dashi, mirin and soy sauce. The sweetness of this sauce can be varied by adjusting the quantity of the sugar added into it.
2. Take a 10-inch skillet heated up, add the cut pieces of meat and onion to it. Saute this for a couple of seconds and then add the sauce. Once it boils, cover it and let the meat cook.
