Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl or Katsudon is one of my favorite Japanese food. I have been wanting to make this delicious recipe for the longest time but keep on forgetting to get one ingredient that you can only buy from an Asian grocery store. It's a perfect dish for a busy day, so easy to make and you can deep fry the breaded chicken, beef or pork ahead of time. 

Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl is a deep fried chicken and eggs cooked in a sweet and salty broth and placed over rice. Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl is known as Japanese Katsudon. Katsudon is a fried, panko breaded chicken, beef or pork cutlet with eggs, sauteed onions and a sweet and savory sauce placed over rice. 

Why order or eat out when you can make a delicious and flavorful Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl or Katsudon at home. A great recipe using left over fried chicken or fried pork chops. This recipe is worth a try. Make it and surprise your family with this simple and delicious dish.
