Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl (Gluten-Free)

Donburi (Japanese rice bowl) is a popular Japanese dish. We can eat rice and main dish ingredients in one bowl so it is great for lunch or when we don’t have time to prepare a meal. We have a lot of types of rice bowls, such as beef Sukiyaki, egg, fresh raw fish and shellfish, eel and so on.

Today I introduce you to Oyako-don, which is the famous chicken and egg rice bowl. It is full of great protein, carbohydrate and vitamins. I used chicken breast to make the dish healthier. You can use chicken thigh instead if you prefer. Chicken breast is low in fat and high in nutrition, but I feel it can be a little bit hard to chew after cooking. So I will also show you how to make chicken breast tender with baking soda and salt in this recipe.

The chicken and egg rice bowl is easy to make, nutritious, and delicious, so try to cook it for your family and friends!

Egg Donburi (Gluten-Free)

Egg Donburi is easy to cook, has carbohydrate and protein, and is delicious!! It is great for lunch during work, or any meal at home.

I usually put dried seaweed on top because I want to make Donburi more nutritious. Seaweed has great protein, minerals, and iron. You can get dried seaweed in most grocery stores easily so please add it to your meals everyday.
