Oyakodon Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl An oldie but a goodie, this classic Japanese rice dish wins hands down on the taste and ease front. Oyakodon is a ‘donburi’ style of Japanese dish where a tasty topping is laid over a bowl of freshly boiled rice.

THAI CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP: Even if you don't have much chicken left over, you should still make this. A few shreds will be plenty.
