Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour in stock, then whisk in soy sauce, mirin, and brown sugar; stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until slightly reduced, about 10 minutes.

  • Whisk eggs in a bowl until well-beaten, then pour into the hot stock mixture. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat, and steam until egg is cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  • Divide rice among 4 deep soup bowls and top with equal amounts of the soup mixture.
