Cut the chicken thigh into small bite-sized pieces. Remove the stems of the shiitake and cut into quarters.
Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the (A) ingredients. Mix and then strain the mixture. Place the chicken, kamaboko, and shiitake in cups and pour in the egg mixture.
|technique||To make smooth chawan-mushi (steamed egg custard), pour the egg mixture slowly into cups to avoid forming bubbles. Maintain an even heat and do not overcook as over-steaming causes bubbles.|
