Chicken Okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki is a savory pancake. Okonomi means something along the lines of "what you want" and yaki means "grilled" or "cooked." We've made it before - during our Cooking Around the World Adventure when we traveled to Japan by tabletop. Click here to see that post.

Tonight, I decided to add chicken.

The batter: 2 C chicken stock, 2 C white whole wheat flour, and 4 eggs. Whisk all of the ingredients together to form a thin pancake batter. Stir in 6 C of cabbage, 1 C cooked chicken, and 1/2 C dried shrimp.

Cook in a flat pan until the batter is cooked, the cabbage is softened, and the pancake is lightly browned.

I have seen beautiful images of okonomiyaki garnished with okonomiyaki sauce marbled with mayonnaise. We opted for the plop and smear method. So, it wasn't very photogenic, but it was delicious. All the okonomiyaki sauce recipes I found were slightly different. I mixed some ketchup, honey, lemon juice, and soy sauce for ours. Then we sprinkled it with furikake. Yum!
