Today I’ll show you how to make one of Japan’s favourite dishes. We normally use pork, but chicken is a good alternative. It takes roughly 5 mins preparation time and 10 minutes cooking time. All this can be made for roughly $3!
1 Chicken breast
Handful of grated cheese
Bread Crumbs (or PanKo)
Salt and Pepper
Season with salt and pepper, then put cheese on one side of the open chicken breast.
Fold the other hald of the chciken back over onto itself to cover the cheese, then using tooth-picks secure the sides to prevent them opening when you fry.
Heat oil in a frying pan to 160 deg cel. To test, drop some bread crumbs in the oil and if it floats to the surface slowly, it is ready. For some deep frying, you need very hot oil but in this case, the oil only needs to be medium hot since the chicken must be cooked slowly.
For the sauce, you can buy Tonkatsu sauce in any Asian supermarket, or you can mix ketchup with mayonnaise, or even keep it simple with lots of salt and pepper.
