Oyakodon with Furikake

Oyakodon with Furikake

Oyakodon is a popular Japanese dish that consists of a bowl of steamed rice topped with chicken and eggs simmered in a flavorful sauce. Furikake, on the other hand, is a Japanese seasoning made from a mixture of dried and ground ingredients such as seaweed, bonito flakes, sesame seeds, and salt. It is often sprinkled over rice, noodles, or other dishes to add flavor and texture.

To make Oyakodon with Furikake, you can follow these general steps:


  • 2 cups cooked steamed rice
  • 2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup dashi stock (or substitute with chicken or vegetable stock)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Furikake seasoning (store-bought or homemade)


  1. In a large frying pan or skillet, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook until they become translucent and soft.
  2. Add the sliced chicken to the pan and cook until it's no longer pink.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dashi stock, soy sauce, mirin, and sugar until well combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pan with the chicken and onions. Stir everything together and let it simmer for a few minutes until the flavors meld.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the eggs lightly.
  6. Pour the beaten eggs evenly over the chicken and onions. Cover the pan and let it cook on low heat until the eggs are set but still slightly runny.
  7. Once the eggs are cooked, turn off the heat and let the oyakodon sit for a minute.
  8. Place a serving of steamed rice into a bowl.
  9. Gently scoop the oyakodon mixture on top of the rice, making sure to include some chicken, onions, and the cooked eggs.
  10. Sprinkle furikake seasoning over the top of the dish according to your taste preferences.
