[Recipe] Oyako-Don.

I had a full packed day. Didn't do my grocery shopping. And had ZERO clue what to cook for dinner. This happens to me a lot of the time. 

I decided to cook a no-brainer one dish meal and tried something in the line of oyako-don.

So I cooked my rice, went to the grocers and was back home within 20 minutes.
Here's my ingredients :
- 2 pcs of boneless chicken thigh
- a small packet of shitake mushrooms
- one large onion
- 3 medium eggs, beaten
- 1 rice bowl of sweet corn
- 1tbsp chopped garlic
- 2 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 tbsp teriyaki sauce
- 2 tbsp mirin (sweet cooking sauce)
- 1 tbsp corn flour 
- 1/2 cube of chicken stock
- approx. 1 rice bowl water
- pepper and salt to taste

Method :

- slice the chicken into bite sized pieces and marinade it with oyster sauce, teriyaki sauce, corn flour and some pepper. Set aside for a while to let the flavors set into the meat.
- When ready to cook, stir fry garlic and onions. 
- Once onions are soft, put in the chicken and fry till half cooked.
- Add the mushrooms, sweet corn, mirin sauce and chicken stock.
- Add water and leave it to cook for about 20-30 mins.
- You could do a taste test at this point, to adjust if its too salty or too bland for your liking.
- Add the eggs and let it cook for another minute or two.
- Serve it on top of your rice bowl.

Well of course, we cannot forego the seaweed topping on the dish that makes it even more authentic! And I pan-fried some breaded scallops for the kids as side dish.

Nothing fancy - just a simple home cooked meal we enjoyed.
Till the next post, have a blessed week!
