Chicken Katsu

MommaCuisine's picture
For Japanese food lovers, Katsu is a staple. A thinly pounded chicken breast is coated in crunchy yet light, Japanese-style breadcrumbs, called Panko. Tonkatsu is another version, instead using thinly pounded pork cutlets. Either one is a great hit in my home. What makes Katsu different from the rest of the chops is the sauce, rightfully named, you guessed it, Katsu sauce. This recipe shows you how simple it is to make Katsu Sauce at home and re-created a Japanese restaurant favorite at home.
