In Japanese, the word ”Okonomi” means “what you like”, and “yaki” means “cooked”. That means you can add anything you like to your okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is made with cabbage, pork slices, seafood, egg, and flour and top with Okonomi sauce, Japenese mayonnaise, and dried bonito flakes. I want to replace pork slices with chicken breast to make yummy okonomiyaki this time. Let’s do it.
