Chicken Soborodon

This is a quick & easy recipe for a delicious and filling donburi that can be on the table in 15 minutes!

This donburi dish features rice topped with deliciously flavoured minced chicken, softly sweet egg, and crisp snow peas. You can make both chicken and egg soboro ahead and keep them in the fridge, making this simple dish even quicker!

Donburi means big bowl in Japanese. When talking about food however, it refers to a one-meal dish of rice and toppings. The name of the donburi dish usually includes the toppings, plus don (short for donburi). Many donburi dishes have more creative names, as explained in our oyakodon recipe.

This chicken soborodon uses both chicken and egg soboro, along with snow peas. The three colours of the main ingredients make this dish a type of sanshokudon, or tricolour rice bowl. Great for busy weeknights, chicken soborodon also makes a satisfying one-dish bento!
