Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl

This is so fast and delicious, we really liked it! The portion sizes are off if you consider it the main meal -- it was barely enough for two and I wouldn't exactly call it a soup because there wasn't much broth. I think I will double it when we make it again, except for the egg, and maybe try adding less sugar and some coconut vinegar to add a little more depth. We will definitely make this again!

I have never heard of coconut vinegar; sounds intriguing! Where would you find something like that?

Super easy and really really good. It has simple flavors and there isn't much to it, but for some reason it just has a comforting flavor and makes you feel wholesome. Like Japan's version of chicken and noodle soup. I'm sure I will be made on a regular basis. Thanks for the recipe!

Made this for dinner tonight and was really excited about trying it, especially after reading rave reviews. Although it was relatively quick and easy, it was boring and very unappealing to look at. The egg cooked in the broth looked like floating snot, and there was no depth to the flavor. You're better off sauteing chicken in soy sauce and serving it over rice.

Too sweet, wrong proportions, not very tastey.
