• 2 boneless chicken breasts
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 2 large eggs
• 1 tablespoon milk
• 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
• Vegetable oil for frying

Katsu Sauce:

• ½ cup ketchup
• 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
• 1 tablespoon wet mustard
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon brown sugar
• ½ teaspoon ground ginger


1️⃣ Trim meat of any unwanted fat. Lay chicken breasts on countertop between two layers of plastic wrap. Pound out chicken until 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

2️⃣ Spread flour into a shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish, whisk eggs together with milk. In an additional separate shallow dish, spread out panko bread crumbs.

3️⃣ Pour about 2 inches of vegetable oil into a deep, large skillet. Bring oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

4️⃣ While oil is coming to temperature, dredge chicken in flour to coat, then immediately dip into eggs, followed by panko, ensuring all parts of chicken are evenly coated.

5️⃣ Place breaded chicken into the hot oil and fry 3-4 minutes. Work in batches if needed, based on size of pan. Chicken should not crowd the pan.

6️⃣ Gently flip and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 Fahrenheit, and is browned and crisp.

7️⃣ Remove from oil and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice into thin slices and drizzle with katsu sauce.
