  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute chicken strips and onion until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain off as much liquid as possible.
  2. Stir in the chicken stock and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and carrot; let simmer for a few minutes before stirring in the sugar, soy sauce and salt. Simmer for 3 more minutes. Sprinkle in half of the spring onions, stirring gently. Pour beaten eggs over the chicken mixture and simmer until the eggs are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve over Japanese sticky rice.
