    Heydarl's Note:

    Domburi means and earthenware bowl, but the name also applies to the food served in it, generally rice with toppings of meat, eggs, poultry, vegetables or a combination of ingredients. Oyako domburi is so called because it is made from chicken and eggs served over rice. From The Complete Asian Cookbook by Charmaine Solomon.

      We loved this dish. I made it with brown rice and leftover cooked turkey breast so I had to adjust the cooking time a bit. It was very easy to put together and quick to cook. The kids declared it yummy! I sprinkled mine with white pepper, which I really liked. Thanks for this easy on the pocketbook recipe that was tasty and healthy.

      This is a wonderful dish! I've never had Oyako Domburi before so can not judge this based on authenticity but it has all of the flavors that I expected from Japanese food and tasted great. I did not add the salt as the soy sauce was salty enough for us. It was very quick to prepare so made a nice evening dish. Great recipe Heydarl - thanks!

      This was really wonderful! This is the best oyako domburi recipe I have tried at home. I think next time I make it, though, I might cut down on the onions. The broth was perfect though, and the directions were easy to follow. I did use low-sodium soy sauce and cut back on the salt, because of one of my guests dietary restrictions, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, using chicken thighs. I will say that this is a LOT of food! Very filling and nicely frugal (if you already have soy and mirin).
