Omurice Recipe

"Omu" is an abbreviation for "omuretsu" (omelette pronounced with a Japanese accent) and "rice" (pronounced raisu) refers to the sweet and savory chicken rice it's filled with. It's unclear where the dish originated, but in Japan omurice is considered yōshoku(western food) and it was probably created around the turn of the last century when western style cafes became popular. In older preparations it's made exactly like an omelette in that the chicken rice was wrapped in a thin sheet of egg. However, in more recent years, most places ditch the thin papery egg for a luscious blanket of soft scrambled eggs on top.

There are even some restaurants that specialize exclusively in omurice. The rice is seasoned mainly with ketchup, which makes it the perfect sweet and tangy contrast to the creamy egg on top. If ketchup with rice isn't your cup of tea, don't worry. Oyakodon Recipe. Oyako donburi (親子丼), which literally means “parent child bowl” is a popular chicken and egg rice bowl in Japan.

Oyakodon Recipe

It’s a simple one bowl meal with flavorful chunks of chicken wrapped in a custardy blanket of eggs, all seasoned with a mild dashi broth that tickles down onto the steamy bed of rice below. At yakitori (grilled chicken) restaurants, the chicken is often skewered and grilled first. This allows the excess fat to render out the chicken while infusing a great charcoal grilled flavor into the oyakodon.

Most home preparations however have you pan fry the chicken. It’s important to leave the skin-on because it keeps the chicken moist and adds flavor, but I’m not a huge fan of the fatty rubbery texture of the skin that gets left. The trick is to put the chicken into a cold, dry pan, skin side down with a weight on top. Water Bagels: King Arthur Flour.
