Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl

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.

I loved this recipe, although, like many others, I couldn't help but make a few minor adjustments. I substituted pineapple juice for the sugar giving the dish a bit more of a teriyaki flavor. I agree with the last post that there wasn't much broth and I will also increase the amount called for. The whole family loved this entree, I'm definitely adding this to our usual rotation, yum!

I had hight hopes and I did not like this at all. It was too sweet and bland. Also, it didn't really have any color and looked like liquid sludge. Maybe it would taste better with more soysauce, noodles, and some sliced peppers for color.

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!
