This Japanese inspired dish is probably the best version of Katsu we have ever had. Yup I am blowing my own trumpet here because I swear by this recipe and will always recommend it to anyone who wants to create this dish.
Served alongside some delicious vegetables and sticky jasmine rice this makes a great dish you can impress your friends and family with.
Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…
- A big time saver for chopping veg with a veg chopper, from onions to carrots this is a god send to chop quickly.
- Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
- A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
- Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
- Hand blender.
- Small food processor ideal for blitzing small amounts of food.
- Garlic crusher, we have had this one for a good while, easy to clean and can crush multiple cloves at once saving time.

Serves 2 – Half HexB and 0.5 syn each
For the chicken:-
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 30g wholemeal bread, blitzed into breadcrumbs
- 1 small egg, beaten
For the sauce:-
- 2 white onions, peeled and diced
- 2 large carrots, grated
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 600ml hot chicken stock
- 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon tomato puree
- SpiceNTice Katsu curry kit (**See note above about this meal kit)
- 3 tablespoons cornflour mixed with small amount of cold water to make a paste – 3 syns
- Preheat the oven to 200°C fan.
- Pat the chicken breasts dry with a piece of kitchen towel, dip in the beaten egg then into the breadcrumbs until they are both evenly coated.
- Place the chicken on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until the juices run clear and the breadcrumbs crisp and golden.
- Meanwhile make your sauce.
- In a large saucepan saute the onion and garlic until starting to soften, add the carrot and saute for a few more minutes.
- Stir in the remaining sauce ingredients (apart from the cornflour) and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Use a hand blender and blitz the sauce until smooth, put back on a medium heat and grab a whisk, whisk in the cornflour and whisk until the sauce is thickened to your liking.
- Serve the sauce alongside some sticky jasmine rice and vegetables and slice the chicken and serve on top of the sauce. Squeeze a slice of lime or lemon over the top and sprinkle over a few nigella seeds, delicious.
