Ingredients for 4 Servings
Chicken thigh (鶏もも肉 / Tori-no-momoniku) １ (about 200 g)
Mushrooms (キノコ / Kinoko) 1 pack
These four are good, but any will do.
Shimeji (しめじ / Shimeji)
Shīhtake (しいたけ / Shīhtake)
Maitake (まいたけ / Maitake)
Enoki (えのき / Enoki)
Dashi-jiru (だし汁 / Dashi-jiru) １ l
Soy sauce (醤Oil (油 / Abura)/ Shōyu) 2 1/2 tbsp
Mirin (みりん / Mirin) 2 tbsp
Sugar (砂糖 / Satōh) 1/2 tsp
Salt (塩/ Shio) 1/3 tsp
How to Make
１． Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Use your hands to break the mushrooms into bite-size pieces, as well. If you are using shīhtake or enoki, slice them with a knife.
２． Add the dashi-jiru, soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and salt to a pot and place the pot on medium heat. Once the liquid comes to a boil, add the chicken. When the chicken whitens, add the mushrooms. Cook for 2 minutes or so, until the mushrooms soften.
３． Add cooked udon (which you have already rinsed in cold water) to the pot. When the pot comes to a boil once again, turn off the heat and serve.
This dish goes very well with toppings such as green onion, ginger, shiso, myōga, roasted sesame seeds, and nori.
