How to make it
- Tonkatsu Sauce:
- Mix all ingredients together in small bowl and set aside.
- Chicken will need to be pounded very thin (with a mallet or meat tenderizer) so that it cooks evenly and quickly. This cooking technique is called paillard. Between two sheets of plastic wrap, pound the chicken until thin, about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick.
- You will need to create a station where you have bowls to bread the chicken. From left to right, have 1) a plate of flour to dredge the chicken, 2) a bowl or plate with 2-3 tablespoons of water, scrambled with one egg, and 3) a plate of panko bread crumbs
- Season the chicken breast pieces with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge, lightly coat, the chicken breast with flour on all sides and dust off excess flour. Dip/coat chicken breast in the egg mixture then coat the chicken with panko bread crumbs.
- Heat a large saute pan, add enough oil to come up half way or even more up the chicken (about 1/4 inch), then heat oil over medium-high heat. Test if oil is heated by throwing some panko crumbs in. If it sizzles, it’s ready. Add the chicken into the oil. Do not overcrowd the pan, as overcrowding will drop down the temperature. Cook chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
- Drain on paper towels and slice. Serve on top of shredded iceberg lettuce (or napa cabbage) and top with tonkatsu sauce.
