1. In a bowl, combine the ☆ ingredients. Heat some oil in a skillet, make scramble eggs and transfer it on to a plate.
2. Combine the ★ ingredients in a small bowl and set it aside.
3. You do not need to wash the bowl that you used to mix the eggs. Use the bowl to mix the ground chicken and okara with chopsticks.
4. Heat some sesame oil in a skillet, add the mixture from Step 3, lightly season it with salt and pepper and cook stirring occasionally not to let the chicken form lumps.
5. Add the ingredients from Step 2 into the chicken from Step 4 and mix well with chopsticks.
6. Add some rice into a serving bowl. Spread the chicken soboro on top and place the scrambled egg from Step 1 and the green onions on top.
7. I forgot to take a photo of the finished product, so the top photo shown here is at Step 6. Sprinkle on some white sesame seeds, shredded nori seaweed and shichimi spice and it is done.
