Chicken Katsu & Homemade Tonkatsu Sauce

Anytime we go out for sushi, my son always orders Chicken Katsu. I figured, why not make it at home? It's so easy, delish and something our entire family loves to eat for dinner. The sauce is so delicious too. Perfect for one of those days were you don't want to really cook a big meal and take out isn't an option. You can by Panko crumbs by the breadcrumbs at your local grocery store but I recommend using one from a local Asian store. Either way, it's still very good.

  • Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup oil for frying, or as needed


Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Place the flour, beaten egg and panko crumbs into seperate shallow dishes. Coat the chicken in the flour then dip in egg, coat well and then dip into the pank crumbs and press so crumbs cover every part of the chicken breast. Place chicken into a pan that has hot oil in it and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Chicken will turn golden brown.

Tonkatsu Sauce Ingredients:

1 cup of ketchup
4 teaspoons of dry mustard powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of black pepper
3 T of worcestershire sauce

Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix well, refrigerate for at least an hour for all flavor to blend well.
