Cut chicken into small bite-sized pieces to your liking. I recommend using thigh over breast for more tenderness.
Slice onions finely.
Prepare dashi stock. Mix with the soy sauce, mirin and sake in a separate bowl.
Heat pan on medium heat. Once hot, add a dollop of oil and the onions. Follow shortly with the chicken pieces. After a minute of searing add the stock and let it simmer for 10-12 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
In the last minute of cooking, beat two eggs in a separate bowl. Pour on top of the chicken and onion mixture in the pan and turn off the heat after a minute on low simmer.
Serve on top of a bowl of white rice and garnish with the chopped spring onions, coriander or seaweed. Serve while warm.
