Oyakodon is a rice bowl topped with simmered chicken and eggs. Oyakodon literally “parent-and-child donburi”, is a Japanese Donburi or rice bowl dish, in which chicken .,egg, onion, and other ingredients are all simmered together in a sauce and then served on top of a large bowl of rice. The name of the dish, parent and child donburi, is a poetic reflection of the fact that both chicken and egg are used in the dish. In Japan oyakodon is often served in soba restaurant and other traditional Japanese restaurants.

Oh my God. This dish came out sooooo goood. Just like the Japanese restaurant. I added a bit of Furikake-iso ichiban at the very end between the rice and chicken. It gave it a more of a slight bonito/seaweed flavor. It is absolutely great. Thanks for the video and instructions.

Someone should remove the music. It's too loud and pointless. I'd rather be listening to the chef - you can hardly hear him!
