Ignis picks up how to make this one when he sees some woman chowing down on it midgame. This inspires his own version. The creep. His chef skills “level up” the more dishes he makes, opening up more-potent stat-boosting cuisine in the process and adding another reason to expand your tastes during the whole “battle with the empire, save your betrothed and avenge your father” thing. The food in FFXV might seem like it’s a distraction, but as you play further, the stat improvements and benefits often became necessary for big fights. This meant I was actively looking for more recipes and eating at every restaurant I could find in order to unearth stronger, more-potent dinners.
This is a classic Japanese home-cooked dish that I’ve always wanted to nail. And I did! The ingredients I listed above were all I needed to achieve a real depth of flavor with the chicken, eggs and rice. The rice wasn’t perfect, but then again, I rarely cook rice in a pan. I’m not a chef — yet. All told, this, too, was another realistic campside meal … if you were to carry around all the required Japanese seasonings.
