Oh, this Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl recipe from Eating Well was so comforting and yummy! One serving (only 262 calories) is enough for a light meal, but heartier appetites can enjoy two servings. The key to this recipe is the subtle, slightly sweet broth, which is the best tasting version I have had outside of a restaurant.
If you want to omit the chicken, it would still be excellent too. It's quick and simple but tremendously satisfying. Traditionally, this dish is called oyakodon and is often calls for the harder to find dashi soup base rather than chicken stock. The name translates and “parent and child” in reference to the chicken and the egg.
I am so in love with this comfort dish that I plan on experimenting with more traditional ingredients and will be seeking out this dashi in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, try this recipe, especially on a chilly wind blown night.
