Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl

April/May 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (254 votes)

Here's the quintessence of Japanese home cooking: an aromatic, protein-rich broth served over rice. Admittedly, Japanese cooking leans heavily on sugar - for a less traditional taste, you could reduce or even omit the sugar.

Simple, Delicious

I made exactly as described, using white wine (forgot sugar), and it was excellent. Next time I will try adding mushrooms.

So easy, ingredients on hand

simple and delicious

I've read a lot of the reviews and I think people are missing the point - this is not a soup, but a rice dish.
I love tweaking recipes, too, but think the review should be on the original recipe, which I followed to a T. I measured it out and it only serves two, but that can easily be fixed.

serves 2, not 4

Use the recipe as a starting point!

I agree with the other reviewers that the recipe does not call for enough broth/liquid. I used:

4 c chicken broth
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp rice wine vinegar (in place of mirin)
NO sugar
3 whole eggs

Also threw in some sliced mushrooms and spinach! Very delicious, I will definitely be making this again.

Easy, hearty, delicious

Your recipe adjustments are

Your recipe adjustments are great for a SOUP. The original recipe is for a rice bowl which has the meat/veggies on to of rice not liquid. It's goo either way!

Best easy quick healthy dinner!!! Family favorite!!!!

I also leave out the sugar. I make it as a soup using more chicken broth and serve rice on the side. Sometimes we eat it as a rice bowl too. However, everyone in the family loves this....including my daughters friends. I like to add slice mushrooms too it.

I like this idea. I felt it

I like this idea. I felt it was close to stew. I would do more broth, less rice or rice on the side,
