..Chicken Sukiyaki Donburi (Chicken Suki-Don)..

Japanese chicken Sukiyaki Donburi

You probably associate the word "sukiyaki" with beef - that is after all a classic Japanese meat dish and one of the first dishes that popularised Japanese food. Beef is expensive in Japan, so a beef sukiyaki is considered an occasional luxuryrather than something to regularly serve on the kitchen table. Chicken is a cheaper option so in recent years, Japanese cooks have started serving chicken as a beef substitute for a sukiyaki dish - AKA Chicken Sukiyaki - you will probably know that the "Donburi" in the title means a dish served on a bowl of rice - so all-in-all this is a simple, nutricious one pot dish that's easy on the pocket and ready in 20 minutes - what more could you ask for?

If you would like to try this dish yourself, you can find the Youtube tutorial by clicking Chicken Sukiyaki Donburi or by scrolling to the bottom of the page. The written recipe is just below.
