    The whole look of this dish just speaks to comfort. I make myself meals that are very similar on weeknights, except that I sub the chicken for cabbage – it gives it some substantial body that goes really well with egg and soy sauce. Thank you for sharing this beauty – and happy New Year!!!

      I was just rueing being a vegetarian and then spied this! Maybe a kombu “semi-dashi” and cabbage?…or maybe I should just go read up on egg-drop soup or something similar! Love the ooey-gooey onelette vibr here though.

        I bet a kombu dashi would work wonderfully, Claire!! And actually Erika at http://thepancakeprincess.com just told me she made this with tofu — maybe another option?! It sounded and looked incredible — even loosier and goosier and more comforting :) Thank you for the kind words!

      Ooh, cabbage sounds so, so good! I can just imagine that texture and I agree it sounds like it would go perfectly. I can’t wait to try that next. Thank you, Ksenia!

    Welcome back! I am so making this. My husband will loooove it. And it doesn’t take tons of time. Added bonus that it calls for sake because 2 tbs in the pan translates to 2 cups on the lips :). Wait, what was that about indulgence?? Lmao re that video of the little girl. Happy New year. It’s always so wonderful to wake up to your posts and the fact that you make an effort on top of your demanding day job. All the best.

      That is exactly me these days!! Wishing us lots of comfort food to help us get back into productivity mode (JK I’m not sure when I’m ever in productivity mode.) Thanks so much, Heather!!

    You know how I feel about comfort food. Custard-y chicken dishes speak my language. I’ve never had Oyakodon, that needs to change.. :) Happy 2016!

    It’s getting downright unpleasant in Boston now, so the thought of eating this next week (a particularly blustery and unpleasant weather forecast was made for it) is very soothing. Love how the egg yolk looks in the bowl- it screams comfort and warmth

say hello!
