How to make it

  • In large stir fry pan or wok, cook bacon(or just add the bacon grease) until just crispy.
  • Add mushrooms and saute about 5 minutes.
  • Add water and entire brick of curry sauce mix to mushrooms.
  • Let simmer on high to thicken, stirring occasionally while preparing chicken.
  • Pound chicken breasts out to about 1/2 inch thickness. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In pie plate, combine breadcrumbs with salt, pepper and other desired seasonings(ie garlic or onion powder, cayenne, parsley, etc)
  • Dredge chicken in egg then in breadcrumbs until evenly coated.
  • Cook chicken in large skillet with peanut or vegetable oil.
  • Cook about 5 minute each side, until chicken is cooked through.
  • To arrange dish, place serving of rice on plate, top with sliced chicken breast, then about 1/2 cup shredded cheese, then top with sauce.
  • **CoCo's curry is a messy dish of yummy goodness according to those who've tasted the real thing. You can adjust the heat of this recipe by the use of cayenne or the pepperjack cheese, but I don't suggest using any commercial curry powders...they will change the flavor, noticeably. **

    Just finished eating this. I made an account to let everyone know to add 1/2 white onion 1 whole carrot and 2 cloves of garlic with the bacon and it was spot on to CoCos

    I came on this to make a comment as I followed her directions and this WAS NOT close to CoCo-Ichibanya. As a vet who ate this for 3 years on Okinawa this was a nice try but not it. My tastes bud remember the taste very well as I live in California and can get CoCos here also, but only once a month due to a job driving by the restaurant. The lady who did this admits she never ate there and her BF recollection memory is wrong. He is being nice saying it tastes just like it, it does not even taste like it or slightly similar it is off entirely. "Keni" When your in California or Ohau, Hawaii stop in and get some CoCos and your mind will be blown have far off this recipe is and not even at best remotely close.

    This was as close to Coco Ichibanya chicken cutlet curry as I've gotten since Okinawa. I added some garlic while frying the bacon, added a couple Tbsp of flour as well. Then added all the gravy and potatoes and carrots to the crock pot. In other recipes I've seen them add a Tbsp each of ketchup and worcestire sauce, so added that. It was perfect!

    I just made this and it turned out amazing! Instead of mushrooms I used carrots, califlower, and broccoli! Not exactly like CoCos but close enough for now!!

    S&B is good, but it's not nothing compared to the taste of CoCos! And if you like anything above level 3/4, you will have to add your own cayenne/chili powder to the S&B HOT.

    It is however a good sub until someone can figure out how to make the actual CoCo's curry! I have gotten close, last night was the closest by far.

    Visited our local Thai/Asian market yesterday, got some Nan bread and some EXTRA hot chili powder. Also the fukujenzuke was at another store that I had visited.

    I used the S&B HOT, a spicy Jamaican curry powder, and the extra hot chili powder. I know that I am still missing a certain ingredient to make it taste exactly the same, but sometimes you have to realize *sadly* that it's always better when someone else makes it for you. The chili powder made a HUGE difference!

    and yes the panko breading and such really helps as well! :) Great recipe for those who are dieing for "just one more bite". Thanks!

    I just came back from visiting my daughter in Japan. I became addicted to Coco's chicken cutlet curry and naan bread dinner. I have to say, I could not go above level 2. I have been trying to catch a recipe to make this wonderful dish for my husband and me. Hopefully, when I try this recipe, it will taste like the original.

    One of the easiest recipes we've come up with. :) Simple, but amazingly accurate. I never would have gotten the breading on the chicken right without your help, though. For anyone else who happens across this recipe and wonders about it's authenticity, I'm the boyfriend in question, and it's just like sitting in CoCo's stuffing your face with level 4 curry at 3 a.m. Try it, and scratch that itch. ;)

    Hi Keni - Any idea where to find the S&B Golden curry sauce mix? I would want to try "the real thing!" Is S&B the actual name brand?

    Oh, wow, this looks good! I'll give it a try. My kids are finally learning to enjoy Japanese food. We've had two Japanese exchange students and this has been a plus for learning to eat new foods.

    Thanks for the recipe!
