"We can't make delicious omurice using the equipment we have!" - Minko

There are several ways to complete this delicious chicken, rice, and egg dish. Watch a professional chef show his elegant method of making omurice here. You may also add chopped carrots, mushrooms, or other vegetables to the rice mixture. I included broccoli as a optional garnish, since Ohana from Hanasaku Iroha makes broccoli "revenge" omurice for her mother who neglected her as a child. A version of "love" omurice (shown in the image gallery) is also featured on the show.

How to Make omurice

— Ingredients —

1/2 onion
chicken thigh
1 chicken thigh
olive oil
olive oil
soy sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp + 1/4 cup ketchup
1-2 eggs
milk (or cream)
1-2 tbsp milk (or cream)

— Instructions —

  1. Mince onion and cut chicken into small (half-inch) pieces.
  2. Sauté onion with oil over medium heat until softened.
  3. Add chicken to pan, and sauté until golden brown on all sides and cooked through.
  4. Add rice. Once thoroughly warmed, stir in salt, pepper, 1 tbsp ketchup, and soy sauce.
  5. Once rice has fried, transfer mixture to a plate. Clean and ready pan for egg.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk egg(s) and milk.
  7. Reheat pan with oil. When pan is hot, add egg mixture, and tilt to cover the pan.
  8. When egg has set on the bottom, sprinkle cheese on top (optional). Then add rice mixture in a line across the middle.
  9. Use spatula to push edges of egg over the rice mixture.
  10. Push the entire omelet to the edge of the pan, and then flip onto the plate.
  11. Drizzle or write words on the top of the omelet with remaining ketchup. (If a ketchup bottle is too hard to control, you may cut a pointy end off of a plastic bag to make a piping bag.)
  12. Garnish with parsley (or cooked broccoli).
