Chicken Katsu

Katsu means cutlet, and chicken katsu is deep fried chicken with bread crumbs. It's commonly served in family restaurants or Teishoku-ya (similar to an American diner).
Basic chicken katsu doesn’t usually contain a filling, but I am going to show you my favorite way to cook.

Yield: 2 servings
Time: 20 minutes


  • Two pieces of chicken breast (3/4 lb each)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 cup Panko (or breadcrumbs)
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp soy sauce
  • Caesar salad dressing
  1. Open each chicken breast and season both sides with salt and pepper
  2. Spread the butter, green onion cheese and soy sauce on one the inside of the chicken breast and fold it back together
  3. Sprinkle flour on both sides of each chicken breast then dredge in egg. Cover with Panko.
  4. Heat oil to 375°F (190°C) and fry chicken until golden brown (about 3 minutes on each side)
  5. Remove chicken, cover with aluminum foil, and let sit on a plate for 3 minutes.
  6. Drizzle Caesar dressing on the chicken and serve!
