Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and brown the chicken

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; cut the chicken into ½-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks, start preparing the remaining donburi ingredients.

2

Cook the donburi topping

  • Remove the stems from the shiitakes; thinly slice the caps.
  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions for garnish.
In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shiitakes and onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken, umami blend, and vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce thickens, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the donburi cooks, prepare the cauliflower “rice.”

3

Cook the cauliflower “rice”

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes [4 to 6 min]. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the cauliflower “rice” to individual bowls and top with the chicken donburi and sauce. Garnish with the shichimi togarashi and scallions and serve.
