Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Japanese mixed rice is cooked by boiling rice with sautéed dressings or with unsautéed ingredients. Sautéed dressings make the dish rich in flavor while the unsautéed variety lets the natural flavor of the ingredients come through. This recipe uses the dressing of sautéed mushroom and chicken to add a rich taste to the dish.

Tips:
It is possible to use any type of mushroom in this recipe but if you use shiitake mushroom, shred the mushroom into thin pieces to increase the surface area producing flavor. If dried shiitake mushrooms are available, boil the rice with the liquid used to re-hydrate the dried shiitake mushrooms instead of in fresh water. This liquid increases the rich mushroom flavor.
You can enjoy this delicious mixed rice dish with any type of mushroom available at your local supermarket.
