Chicken Katsu Recipe
This is my family recipe for Chicken Katsu - Japanese style fried chicken. Can also be used to make Tonkatsu, just use pork cutlets instead of chicken. Serve with white rice and tonkatsu sauce.
Air-fried chicken katsu is crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and delicious paired with homemade katsu sauce.
Try making your own chicken katsu in the air fryer. You need only a few ingredients and it comes together very quickly. Serve with tonkatsu or barbecue sauce for dipping.
Panko (Japanese bread crumbs) crusted fried chicken breasts with a sweet Tonkatsu dipping sauce. Serve with your choice of steamed white rice, shredded cabbage, or even mashed potatoes.
This Asian-inspired chicken recipe sure is kid-friendly--what youngster doesn't like fried crispy chicken pieces dipped in a sweet soy-ketchup sauce?
If you've never tried katsu, a type of Japanese crispy fried cutlet coated with Panko bread crumbs, it's time to remedy that with one of these irresistible recipes.
The chicken Katsu part of this recipe is fabulous...a definite 5 star. But, as many others have noted, the Tonkatsu sauce was practically inedible. I wonder if the worcester sauce and soy sauce amounts were reversed? Despite the negative reviews, I followed the recipe exactly, tasted it, and agreed whole-heartedly with everyone else. So, I doctored it up a bit: added 2 more tablespoons of soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, and put it on the stove to simmer and thicken while I was cooking the chicken. It still wasn't great, but it was pretty good even if it didn't really taste like Tonkatsu sauce. So I'll keep looking for a sauce recipe, but thanks for the wonderful chicken katsu recipe! ETA: I made this again (really, really love this chicken katsu) and tweaked the Tonkatsu sauce recipe and loved it: 1/4 c. ketchup, 1/3 c. soy sauce, 1/4 c. worchester sauce, 1 tbsp hoisin sauce, garlic powder and pepper to taste. Hopefully that will help someone because this chicken katsu is really wonderful
Perfect chicken katsu recipe! Katsu is normally not flavorful, and this was awesome!
