Oyako Don

Oyako Don

Oyako-don is chicken and eggs in a rice bowl.

In English we say family, and in Japanese we would say Oyako.

The chicken and egg are like a family, hence the dish is called Oyakodon.

“family” in English =”Oyako” in Japanese

If it is made properly, it should have juicy tender bite-sized pieces of chicken simmered with onions and leeks in a dashi soup and soy sauce, with eggs added in a special oyakodon pan at the very end.

It is a very popular and basic rice bowl dish in Japanese cuisine.
