Oyakodon Bentos Recipe (Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl)

Owner Lyñ (My Little Messy N Cheeky) SG ⌚ 12:47 AM
Hi everyone! How have you been lately? I'm so sorry for 'MIA-ing' (missing in action) quite some time but I missed all of you! Although I've not been posting for a month now (exactly one month from my last post), I still do visit and trying my very best to catch up on those blogs that I've been missing out but all are too fast for me or am I just too slow in reading!?  For those blogs that I didn't follow up or had missed quite a few posts, I'm really very sorry about that. I'll try my best to keep myself from other distractions and hopefully I'm able to finish reading all your posts, okay? Thank you very much for your understanding. ;)
So, what have I been doing during my absence? Well, in fact I'm not really as busy as you may think that I don't have the time to blog.*blushing* I'm just too lazy to blog, no motivations to blog, just don't feel like blogging outta sudden and I don't even know the reason behind 'til now. That's alright, just forget it because I'm back on the blog now! :D
I don't only fancy cute stuffs and bento gadgets which are mostly from Japan, I'm also a SUPERB BIG fan of Japanese cuisine! I just love everything about Japan to the extreme, I feel! I wish to go Japan one day (it's so expensive), I wish to learn Japanese language (it's so difficult), I wish to learn cooking my favorite Japanese dishes, which is the easiest, the most possible among all my wishes and I'm still learning now! I even wished so much that I'm a Japanese girl when I was young! Silly huh!?  
I'm sure most of you are already very familiar who Nami of Just One Cookbook is. She shares the most authentic Japanese dishes with all her clear and detailed step-by-step photos, links and explanations in her blog. I was very happy when I stumbled upon her blog while hopping around few months back. Do visit her fantastic blog full of delicious food if you haven't do so! You'll be thrilled to bits just like me even if Japanese food is not your most favorite! :D
These Oyakodon bentos were cooked on 5 July 2011. Yes... yup I know... I'm always SOO late in postings but late posts are better than none at all, right? EXCUSE! :P
I used Nami's Oyakodon Recipe. Everything remain the same as Nami's recipe except the frozen chicken cutlets which I used instead of chicken thighs because the girls prefer fried chicken cutlets and instant dashi powder instead of dashi-jiru.
Messy's Oyakodon Bento
   Ingredients For 2 Servings :
  • 2   chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry (I used 2 frozen chicken cutlet, deep fried until golden brown and set aside)
  • 2    eggs
  • ½   onion, thinly sliced
  • 3    Tbsp. Mirin
  • 1     Tbsp. cooking sake
  • 2    Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1     Tbsp. sugar
  • 1     cup Dashi-Jiru (I used instant dashi powder)
  • Chopped Mitsuba for garnish (or finely chopped green onions)
   How to cook :
  1. Cut the chicken diagonally (Use Sogigiri cutting technique) 
  2. Crack eggs into a bowl. DO NOT BEAT. Instead, hold chopsticks with the tip of chopsticks touching the bottom of the bowl, and write “Z” a couple of times. Set aside. 
  3. In a shallow frying pan, heat Mirin and cooking sake and bring it to a boil. 
  4. Add soy sauce, sugar, and Dashi-Jiru and bring it to a boil. 
  5. Spread the onion into the pan, and then place chicken on top. Lower the heat and cook covered for a few minutes until the chicken is cooked through and onion is soft. 
  6. Slowly add the eggs. Instead of pouring at once, evenly pour into the pan. 
  7. Use chopsticks and poke around the ingredients so eggs will disperse evenly. Shake the pan so the ingredients move around and bottom doesn’t stick to the pan. 
  8. Put Japanese rice into a large serving bowl. 
  9. When the egg is cooked about 80%, add Mitsuba (or green onions) and turn off the heat after 1 minute. 
  10. Pour the mixture on top of rice and pour extra sauce. Serve immediately.
Cheeky's Oyakodon Bento 
I cooked this after sending Messy to school. My hubby and I love it! 
I'd love to try using the chicken thighs the next time I cook this dish to compare the differences and I reckon Nami's original recipe will be tastier because the fried cutlets turned soggy after awhile. I tried Nami's few recipes too and will be posting on them in the near future as now I'm writing my posts according to the dates I cooked the dishes. 

I'm linking this post to Nami's Oyakodon Recipe so that you can refer to her clear and beautiful step-by-step photo instructions. Hope you enjoy it! :D

Glad to have you back, Lyn. I know what you mean. Sometimes I don't even know what to cook much less what to blog. After the fun summer, I just didn't know how to get back to blogging. Lucky I had a lot of drafts saved. Your chicken and egg rice bowl looks so delicious!

Lyn,

You may not have been blogging lately, but I see that you've been working on the look of your blog. It looks great!! Stuff like that takes a lot of time too. I know what you mean about not feeling like writing a post! It just takes up so much time. I get like that too, but then am very happy when I finally finish a post :o)

You did a great job with the Oyakodon! Looks very tasty!!

Yum! I actually like chicken katsu don than reg. oyakodon. But here we can't get frozen chicken katsu!! Asia is more convenient sometimes... I love your "quick" meal idea. Also, I really like your new theme. Light blue and pink is a nice contrast. I want to spend some time to improve my look, but no time... Blogging takes a lot of time and effort. Thank you for linking back to me. Please let me share your post on my facebook fan page. :-)

Nami | Just One Cookbook on Sun Sep 04, 06:53:00 AM GMT+8 said... Best Blogger Tips

I just re-read and realized you did deep fried the chicken cutlet. Sorry - I thought there is frozen katsu. We really should have it then it would be very convenient! =P

Hey Lyn, Love the new blog theme, it looks refreshing which makes your food photos stand out! No need to apologize for not posting sooner, I totally understand when you said you didn't feel like blogging. I've done so myself, and truly I think it's due to me being too lazy to download the photos from my big camera to the computer, can you believe that? Haha! Anywho, your Oyakodon Bento looks WONDERFUL! Made my mouth water and this is right after I ate a big dinner. Great job Lyn!

Sandra on Sun Sep 04, 12:39:00 PM GMT+8 said... Best Blogger Tips

You did wonderful job Lyn. And I hear you about blogging, it takes a lot of time, but I am glad that you are back! Very delicious meal, for sure, and I can totally relate, the next best think is to be closer to Japan is to go over at Nami's blog and cook some of her recipes:)) Thank you for sharing!

@Jeno Thanks very much Jeno! You're always so encouraging and understanding! ;D
For me, it's easy and fast for me to transfer my pics to computer mainly from my iPhone which I love taking pics with but the only thing that dreads me most are those editing of the pics. Imagine I can have up to more than a thousand of pics!?!? :O
Try this recipe of Nami's and I'm sure you'd love it! ;D

Mooncakes are sweet traditional Chinese bakery products. The snowskin ones, you don't have to cook/bake it bcoz we used the cooked glutinous rice flour. ;)
