The literal definition of this is the parent and child, what a sad vibe to such a lovely dish. But it goes to show that a mother will always be there with her child all the way to the end, reaching a perfect harmony over a fresh bed of steamed rice.
The lovely soft juicy pieces of egg coated around tender pieces of chicken, with a savory yet sweet sauce slowly dripping down and soaked up by the rice, a lovely dish for any time of the day.
