“I gathered all my eggs in one basket, because I believe in collectivism, and I wanted a tyrannical omelet. ”~Jarod Kintz
When I was in Japan I used to get my lunch from these little places that were takeaway only. I guess it was like a Japanese Deli. All the names of stuff were in Japanese Kanji (chinese characters) and I usually just guessed at what they were. I liked to try different things. Sometimes it was good, sometimes it was not.
One time I came back with a rice bowl with chicken and yellow stuff. It was pretty tasty. I looked long and hard at the Kanji on the label and deduced one of the words was “child”. Odd. So I asked my co-worker what the other symbol was: “parent”.
Parent and child was the name of the dish. It was chicken and egg on rice. When I say it like that it sounds good, but as soon as I looked at the symbols and could see the words parent and child, my stomach rolled.
Just this morning I got back from a big run and was mega hungry for eggs. I had some leftover roast chicken in the fridge so I put together this quiche/omlette like contraption. It was great, and I guess it could be called Oyako Quiche…….
It’s quick, nutritious and just what you might need after a big early morning exercise session. It would be great to cut into quarters and keep in the fridge to heat up in the mornings as a super quick brekky.
What you need:
- 6 eggs
- 2 chicken drumsticks worth of cooked chicken
- 1 leek
- 100g parmesan
What to do:
- Roughly chop the cheese and leeks and whiz in the blender with the eggs.
- Pour into a greased and lined spring-form tin and then sprinkle with chopped chicken
- Bake in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes or until set.
