I grew up eating Azuki (or adzuki) beans and love them in both sweet and savory dishes. They cook fast and very versatile. Here is my Azuki Chicken – extremely simple stew of these two main ingredients. This humble dish is so tasty and always warms my heart. When it’s cooked in donabe, the ingredients come out so tender and flavors become so deep. While any donabe with enough capacity can cook this dish wonderfully, I especially love using my Roast Donabe. This cute compact donabe has an extra thick body with a sturdy flat lid (with no vent) that helps create optimum insulation and moisture retention. And, as the name suggests, this donabe is great for roasting as this can be heated with no liquid inside.
