Shimeji mushroom & chicken spicy Japanese rice porridge recipe

I swapped a couple of bottles of my SAORI Tsuyu Sauce for some beautiful exotic mushrooms (from a local exotic mushroom grower) last night so I made this “shimeji mushroom & chicken spicy Japanese rice porridge” for dinner.  Mmm….I didn’t take a great picture….but it tasted much much better than it looks…! A bunch of my husband’s old friends from his Sydney days are arriving here next week so my husband said “PLEASE COOK THIS DISH FOR THEM…it is stupidly DELICIOUS”. I have 1000 recipes to choose from and he chose this one. It is a very simple dish to cook.
