Katsu Curry Chicken in a wooden bowl on top of a red napkin with small bowls of pickled ginger and green onion in background

Katsu Curry Chicken

Chicken katsu is a type of Japanese fried chicken made with panko breadcrumbs. Its texture is light and crispy and it can be served in a number of ways, including with a Japanese-style curry sauce. This Katsu Curry Chicken recipe brings this delicious meal to your dinner table conveniently, with no fuss.

This recipe uses a Good It’s Gluten Free Katsu Curry Meal Kit, which includes the batter, panko breadcrumbs, and katsu sauce. All you have to do is add the chicken! I like to serve my chicken with cooked jasmine rice and top it with sliced green onions and pickled ginger.

These meal kits serve 2, so you can make one kit or two, depending on your family size. You’ll love the flavor of this sauce and the crisp texture of the chicken coating. This is a meal that is unique and different from what you might normally cook, but trust me when I say it’s so easy for a weeknight or special enough for a weekend.

  • Place the chicken breast flat on a cutting board. Place one hand on top and, with a sharp knife, slice through the chicken breast horizontally, making two equal portions for each breast.
  • Combine the batter mix from the meal kit with 10 tablespoons water and whisk until smooth. Place the panko breadcrumbs on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Heat the Katsu sauce in a small saucepan. Coat the chicken in batter, then roll in the breadcrumbs.
  • Add enough oil in a large skillet to come up ¼ inch. Heat over medium-high heat until it begins to shimmer. Fry for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Toss the cooked chicken in the Katsu sauce.
  • Serve over rice topped with green onions and pickled ginger.
  • The chicken can also be cooked in an air fryer; spray with oil and place in an air fryer preheated to 400°F. Cook for 12 minutes, flipping halfway through.
