Quick Oyakodon


This dish is very easy to make and very Japanese. It reminds me of dishes I've ordered in Japanese restaurants. You can add Korean hot sauce if you like it a little spicy.

2 servings


  • 1 cup uncooked short-grain white rice

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup chicken stock

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • ½ onion, thinly sliced

  • ½ cup shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced

  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half - cut into strips

  • 4 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 6 snow peas, thinly sliced


  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the soy sauce and brown sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Reduce heat to low; keep warm.

  3. Heat several tablespoons of the chicken sauce in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and shiitake mushrooms in the sauce until the onion has softened, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken, green onions, and a few more tablespoons of the sauce; continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes more. Spread the chicken mixture evenly over the skillet; pour the beaten egg overtop. Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle with the snow peas. Cook and stir until the egg has firmed and is no longer runny, about 3 minutes.

  4. Divide the rice between two bowls and spoon the egg mixture evenly overtop. Pour additional chicken sauce over the rice to serve.
