This dish tells a funny story:
For what ?
Oyako means “the parents (the hen) and the children (thees eggs)" And don means “Bowl of rice“.
And we will eat parents and children.
This is a sad story for me.
But hey, thanks to this family, this dish is delicious!!

“Itadakimasu!” (Thank the gods. Bon appetit)

400g cooked Japanese rice

2 chicken thighs (around 180g boneless) cut into bites of around 2cm

Beat the eggs in a bowl, pour 3/4 of the beaten eggs into the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally.
