• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness • salt and pepper, to taste • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour • 1 egg, beaten • 1 cup panko bread crumbs • 1 cup oil for frying, or as needed • tonkatsu sauce, optional


Step 1

To begin, season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Put the egg, flour, and panko crumbs into separate shallow dishes.

Step 3

Coat the chicken breasts in the flour, shaking off any excess.

Step 4

Dip the chicken breasts into the egg, then press down into the panko crumbs until fully coated on both sides.

Step 5

In a large skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil over medium-high heat. Set the chicken down into the hot oil, cooking for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.

Step 6

Serve with a side of tonkatsu sauce, if desired.
