How To Make Japanese Chicken Katsu Recipe (Panko Crispy Chicken)?

  1. Place the flour in one bowl, panko bread crumbs into another bowl and set aside.
  2. Option 1: Slice each of the chicken breasts diagonally and into small pieces.
  3. This Japanese cutting technique is called Sogigiri.
  4. Option 2: Slice the chicken breast into thick cutlets lengthwise.
  5. Place the cut chicken into bowl and season with the salt and black pepper.
  6. Coat each chicken piece with flour then dip into beaten eggs.
  7. Coat the chicken with the panko breadcrumbs and set aside on a plate.
  8. Add 2 inches of oil into a deep skillet and heat on medium-high.
  9. For smaller pieces, cook 4-6 pieces of chicken at a time. This will ensure the oil remains hot and the chicken fries quicker.
  10. Larger cutlets 2-3 pieces at a time.
  11. Deep fry the small cutlets for about 3-5minutes and larger pieces 6-8 minutes or until both sides are golden brown.
  12. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate lined with paper towels. This will allow the paper towel to absorb the excess oil from the chicken.
