“This is a popular (at least in Hawaii) Japanese dish which is often served at restaurants in individual bowls. Oyako means mother and child, hence the main ingredients, chicken and eggs.”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chicken strips and onion until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain off as much liquid as possible.
  2. Stir in the chicken broth, and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and carrot, and let simmer for a few minutes before stirring in the sugar, soy sauce and salt. Simmer for 3 more minutes. Sprinkle in half of the green onions, stirring gently. Pour beaten eggs over the chicken mixture, and simmer until the eggs are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve over Japanese sticky rice.

I work at a Japanese restaurant, and with very little tweaking this recipe tasted exactly the same!! I used less onion than called for, and I used fresh shiitake mushrooms. I also cubed the chicken instead of cutting it into strips, just personal preference. Also, I substituted 1 Tbsp mirin for soy in the sauce, and I added a pat of butter to the sauce (a trick I learned from the cooks where I work) and it was delicious! Also needed to cover the pan while the eggs were cooking, so the sauce did not evaporate too much.

Having lived in Hawaii and Okinawa,Japan, I was thrilled to find this recipe and couldn't wait to try it. It seemed too easy to make but once made, was right on the mark in flavor and authenticity. My kids were thrilled to be able to get oyako at home once again. Super , super recipe! Mahalo Kay!

Suggestion: You can replace the chicken breast with chicken katsu and make it a chicken katsu donburi!! I also added 3-4 tbls of mirin in it. And for a twist, replace the green onion with cilantro gives it a even more refreshing taste! Also instead of chicken broth, I used water and bonito powder for the broth. Regular white mushroom also works great in it if you don't have shitake in hand.
