BEST Oyakodon Recipe (親子丼 – Chicken and Egg Bowl)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


With chicken and egg cooked with tender onions in a sweet and savory dashi broth, this Authentic Oyakodon recipe is a timeless Japanese comfort food that reminds me of my mom’s home cooking. In this version I poach the chicken and onions in dashi instead of browning them, which leaves them juicy and tender. Together with a creamy layer of egg, that brings all the components together the whole thing gets served over a hot donburi of steaming hot rice for a one-bowl meal that’s as satisfying as it is delicious! #eggrecipes #japaneserecipes #oyakodon

I'd like to see a recipe for Onigiri. It's so delicious but I failed hard when trying to make it on my own.

I think tomato nikujaga is my favorite Japanese recipe from your website, so that’s a good one to share on here as well :) and any new recipes, of course!

I'm a lazy, poor college student and I make this a couple times a week! It's fantastic. The only difference is that I brown the chicken thighs before everything else
