Chicken Donburi, a flavorful Japanese rice bowl topped with meat that is hearty one dish meal. If there is any other cuisine that we enjoy the most besides Singaporean cuisine, it would be Japanese. There are many authentic Japanese dining spots in Singapore - from traditional and regional foods of Japan to foreign influenced dishes such as curries and hamburgers. Japanese cuisine is also generating quite a buzz in Houston, from the many modern Japanese restaurants that the city has, to the famed sushi restaurant Nobu that is scheduled for a late 2017 debut.
Japanese dining does not always have to involve raw seafood and can be done quite simply at home. Donburi is a Japanese rice bowl dish consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients that is served over rice. It can be made with almost any ingredient, even leftovers - a great recipe to have if eating down the pantry or refrigerator is a family practice for you.
This recipe is quick and simple, another perfect weeknight dish. I am always able to prepare this dish really quickly and with a side of miso soup, you have a complete meal.
