I called this bento “Teriyaki Vegetable Chicken and Tamagoyaki Bento”, but I could also have called it “Oyako/Parent and Child” Bento as they call any combination of chicken and eggs here in Japan!
The Missus prepared an interesting mame mazegohan/rice mixed with various beans by adding salad beans, and boiled green peas and broad beans leftovers with freshly steamed rice.
Great colors and very satisfying!
The side box was also very satisfying and for once I took my time to savor it instead of wolfing it down!
The Missus concocted two types of rolls with chicken breast fillets/sasami:
One containing mini green asparaguses,
the other containing carrots and pickled wasabi stems and leaves.
She fried them whole first before cutting them to size.
As for the teriyaki sauce I’m afraid this was a secret I’m not privy to!
She added some plain tamagoyaki (for dessert?) and plenty of vegetable with fresh lettuce and some sauteed green and red pimentos.
Very satisfying as I said above, yummy and so colorful!
