05.21 Bentos

05.21 RM BentoOyako Don
RM got the last little bits of leftovers (a wee peach cobbler, a little Salsa Chicken, a smidge of Shrimp in Green Mayo), but there was not enough leftovers from the tapas night to fill his bento as I had originally planned. So I made up some Oyako Don out of my new cookbook. One batch for him and one batch for me. ^.^ Yummmmm.

Oyako Don

  • 1 1/2 c. cooked rice
  • 4 oz. chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/4 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 t. soy sauce
  • 4 t. mirin
  • 1 t. sugar
  • 1/3 c. water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  1. Heat nonstick skillet over medium high heat while you prep everything. Place cooked rice in the bottom of bento (or bowl).
  2. Put chicken and onion in skillet. In a small bowl, combine everything else but the egg and pour over chicken and onion. Boil for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. (At this point I break the egg into the same bowl and beat it vigorously.)
  3. Pour egg thinly over the chicken mixture, circling the skillet. Cook until eggs are nearly set and then place over rice.
