Chicken Katsu has its roots in the Japanese culture and, like many other Asian and Portuguese dishes, eventually found its way to the melting pot of Hawaii. It’s a highly popular dish for the island locals, and is often served with a side of white rice and mac salad. Here the cutlets are bathed in a sticky honey and garlic sauce, then sliced into thin strips and served on a bed of rice, with pops of color from scallions and black sesame seeds.

Ingredients (17)



For Serving

Start Cooking

Prepare the Chicken Katsu

  1. Lay out three plates. In one, season flour with salt and garlic powder. In another, beat the eggs. In a third, pour panko crumbs. One at a time, dredge chicken cutlets in flour, dip in the egg, and coat with panko crumbs. Lightly fry until golden and cooked through. Keep warm.

Prepare the Sauce

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a shallow pan (it should be wide enough to fit a large cutlet) over high heat.

  2. Bring the sauce to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat to medium and continue to cook for four minutes, stirring to ensure it doesn’t burn. The sauce should thicken a bit. Keep warm.

To Serve

  1. Arrange rice on a shallow serving bowl or long platter.

  2. Working with one cutlet at a time, dip cutlets into hot sauce and place on a cutting board.

  3. Using a large knife, slice diagonally into thin strips. Slide the knife under slices, keeping the cutlet’s shape, and gently lay it over the rice.

  4. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds and thinly sliced scallions.

    I always think fried food tastes better when it's made fresh. I'm sure you could make it in advance it just might not be as crispy.
