Chicken Katsu Curry – easy!

Chicken Katsu Curry – easy!

Easy Chicken Katsu Curry recipe!

Have you ever had Chicken Katsu Curry at that famous franchise that starts with a W and ends in mama?

Japanese katsu uses fried breaded chicken and let me tell you it gives it a such a lovely crunchy texture. 

Well this is just about the same. 🙂

I think you could possibly call it a fakeway 

 

So what is it this Katsu curry thing? 

It’s basically lovely chruncy chicken breast coated in panko crumbs (I made my own by grating bread), served with a curry sauce.

I popped mine on a bed of rice and edamame beans – lovely!

How to make the Katsu Chicken Sauce 

The sauce is a bit of a faff but it’s well worth it.

The next time I make it, now I know it works, I will make twice the amount.

Then I’ll pop half in the freezer.

I’ll know this next time I make it.

 

The Chicken in your Katsu Dish – crunchy!!

It’s something a little different and yes it’s fried chicken but don’t worry too much.

You know it’s  only 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil and it is chicken so not horrendously bad.

It’s so lovely and crunchy!!

I also reckon the sauce would be great with breadcrumbed vegetables, next time I think I’ll have a go at this.

 

So what exactly is Chicken Katsu Curry?

Well according to Wiki –

Chicken katsu, also known as panko chicken, or tori katsu is a Japanese dish which is also popular in Hawaii, California, and other areas of the world.

So enjoy, have a go and let me know how you get on with this Easy Chicken Katsu Curry!

Delicious curry flavours for this amazing Katsu recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil I used Rape seed
  • 1/2 Onion peeled and finely sliced
  • 2 cm piece Ginger finely grated
  • 1 Garlic clove crushed
  • 2 Teaspoons Madras Curry Paste I used Patak - or 2 Teaspoons Curry powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Plain Flour
  • 300 ml 1/2 pt Chicken Stock, warm
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons honey
  • 1 Teaspoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 2 skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 50 g Plain Flour seasoned with salt & pepper
  • 1 Free-Range Egg lightly beaten
  • 75 g Panko Breadcrumbs I made my own by roughly grating stale bread
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil for frying (Rape seed is good)
  • Rice I used long grain and wild, however much you like

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven 220C / 425F /Gas 7
  • Katsu Sauce
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion, ginger and garlic and sauté for three to four minutes until tender.
  • Add the curry paste or powder and stir, next add the flour and cook for one to two minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in the warm stock a little at a time, add the soy sauce and honey and simmer, string often, for about 10 minutes.
  • Finally stir in the rice vinegar and garam masala. Keep warm.
  • Breaded Chicken
  • Pop your chicken breasts on a board and hammer with your meat hammer, to about 2cm thick and still a nice shape!
  • Next dip the flattened  chicken breasts in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs, making sure to shake off any excess in between.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan and fry chicken, turning occasionally, until golden (3-4 minutes).
  • Transfer to a baking tray and cook in the oven until cooked through (approx. 10 minutes).
  • When you are ready to serve prepare your rice, heat your edamame beans (I used the microwave for a couple of minutes)
  • Remove chicken from the oven and carefully  slice the chicken,  serve with rice and edamame beans
  • Top with Katsu sauce, dig in and enjoy!
