  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ onion, thinly sliced

Step by step

step 1

Prepare the ingredients: Cut chicken thighs into 1½-2” cubes and thinly slice onions.

Add chicken thighs, sliced onions, Umami Dashi Soy Sauce and water directly to a cold pan. Turn on heat to medium and bring mixture to boil. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
