The name of the dish, parent and child donburi, is a poetic reflection of the fact that both chicken and egg are used in the dish.

Someone should remove the music. It's too loud and pointless. I'd rather be listening to the chef - you can hardly hear him!

Oh my God. This dish came out sooooo goood. Just like the Japanese restaurant. I added a bit of Furikake-iso ichiban at the very end between the rice and chicken. It gave it a more of a slight bonito/seaweed flavor. It is absolutely great. Thanks for the video and instructions.
