Oya means "parent" and ko means "child." Donburi means "large bowl," the fanciful name for this chicken-and-egg dish is a humorous play on the age-old question of which came first, the chicken or the egg. This classic one-bowl meal is simply a chicken omelet, poached in a broth seasoned with sugar and salty soy sauce and served on rice.
