pictures from my little kitchen!

Serves: 2 Recipe from a friend of mine!  (I know – seen on a lot of diff japanese blog sites)


  • 2 chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. mirin
  • 1 Tbsp. sake
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup dashi stock
  • Chopped mitsuba or finely chopped green onion for garnish


  1. Cut the chicken diagonally
  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 sake and bring it to a boil.
  4. Add soy sauce, sugar, and dashi and bring it to a boil.
  5. Spread the onion into the pan and place chicken on top. Cover with a lid and keep the heat on high until it boils.
  6. Once it boils, skim off the scum and fat, and lower the heat to medium and cook for 12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and onion is soft. You can lightly stir the chicken and onion while cooking.
  7. Slowly and evenly add eggs into the pan instead of pouring at once.
  8. 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.
  9. Serve Japanese rice in a large serving bowl. (I just used jasmine rice – still good)
  10. When the egg is cooked about 80%, add mitsuba (or green onions) and turn off the heat after 1 minute. (I totally forgot to add green onions this time!)


All I can say is this taste exactly like the restaurants.  My presentation isn’t exactly restaurant quality – but yah…you get the idea la.  Anyways – SUPER EASY RECIPE AND SUPER YUMMY.  😉
