About this recipe: Japanese comfort food, Oyakodon is chicken and beaten eggs, simmered in a sweet and savoury stock and eaten over cooked rice in a bowl.
This is the ORIGINAL Oyakodon recipe! If you can't find dashi, try putting fish stock instead of chicken. Dashi are little dryed fish turned into powder...! By the way, did you know that "Oyako" means "Parents and Children" (in this case, chicken and eggs); don is just the word used for "rice bowl" - 23 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Real crowd-pleaser here. My kids loved it. Easy to make. To those who say that replacing the dashi with chicken stock, I feel you're missing the Japanese essence of this dish. I heartily recommend seeking out either dashi powder or, if you're feeling a little adventurous, try making your own. It's really quite easy. There are numerous recipes for dashi on this site. - 30 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really enjoyed this recipe. I couldn't find dashi powder, so I substituted veggie stock, which worked just fine. Simple and very tasty. - 15 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
