The takikomi gohan I made last month was really good! Actually one of my friends said it was the best takikomi gohan he had eaten in his whole life! I was so glad that was thinking to make another flavor one since then.
I bought a lot of ground chicken these days because it was on sale but actually I was not familiar with cooking ground chicken so I wanted to make something with it somehow otherwise it could be getting worse so quickly!!
Therefore I made the takikomi gohan with ground chicken tonight. I don't think it's not so popular to use ground chicken for takikomi gohan but I think it's gonna be great because ground meat has a lot of juice and they can get seasoning a lot!!
