Crispy Chicken

One of the downsides to living in Sausalitio is that there are very few places that deliver food and the places that do are usually a bit pricey.  A favorite of mine is the Chicken Katsu at Sweet Ginger.  As delicious as it was, a meal looses something for me when I know how much it is costing me, and Sweet Ginger is no cheap meal.   Solution:  Homemade Chicken Katsu.

This is actually a really easy recipe to make and it needs very few ingredients.



Chicken Katsu

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbs all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 cup oil for frying, or as needed
  1. Pound the chicken breasts into ½ inch thick slabs.
  2. Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the flour, egg and panko crumbs into separate shallow dishes. Coat the chicken breasts in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip them into the egg, and then press into the panko crumbs until well coated on both sides.
  4. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken in the hot oil, and cook about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  5. Cover in Katsu Sause (see below) and serve over rice with a side of broccoli or preferred vegetable.
 Katsu Sauce

1/3 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup of shoyu or soy sauce
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce

         1. Mix ketchup, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl until 
             blended.
