Directions

  1. For the sauce, stir together the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and soy sauce, and a pinch of pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place flour and panko bread crumbs onto separate plates and season with salt and pepper. Place the beaten egg in a medium bowl. Dip flattened chicken pieces first into flour, then egg, and lastly bread crumbs.
  4. Fry breaded chicken breasts in preheated oil until golden brown and no longer pink in center, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excess oil. Slice chicken into thin strips and top with a drizzle of sauce and a sprinkling of sliced green onions. Serve remaining sauce on the side for dipping.

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!

UPDATE: Ive made this again, and it is crucial that you season the chicken and bread crumbs very well so that the chicken isnt bland, and the tonkatsu sauce needs a lot of tweeking. It is way too tangy with the amount of worshtishere sauce called for, but i decreased it a lot to about only a tbs, and added brown sugar and low sodium soy sauce and the ketchup. But I would recommend getting the Kikkoman Tonkatsu sauce, maybe that tastes better, I'll keep trying to perfect the sauce! ORIGINAL REVIEW-The chicken was very very good, i seasoned it well with salt and pepper, and I love the way the panko crumbs give it such a great crispiness. As far as the tonkatsu sauce, the worshestire sauce overwhelmed it very much, so i started over and put only 2 tbs of Worshteshire and 1/4 of water, with 2 tbs of brown sugar, ketchup and soy sauce as called for, since the tonkatsu sauces Ive had before were more sweet.

very easy and tasted just like a restaurant's. Definitely pound thin to ensure even cooking and I just seasoned the chicken thighs with salt and pepper before the flour step. Also the sauce makes way too much and is tart. Here's my recipe for sweeter tonkatsu sauce: 2 tbsp each of ketchup, worcestshire sauce and soy sauce. 1 tbsp hoisin sauce and add about 2 tsp of white sugar to sweeten it up. Boil until sauce thickens and use as a dipping sauce. Overall a lovely recipe.
