Non-fried Chicken Katsu Made in the Oven

Even though they're not fried, they're crispy Marinating the meat before cooking results in juicy and tender chicken katsu!

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Chicken breast
*Salt and pepper
a pinch
1 heaping teaspoon
*Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
100 g
Vegetable oil
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon


1. Cut off the skin from the chicken and cut them diagonally into 1 cm wide cuts.
2. Combine the chicken and the [*] ingredients in a bag and rub together. Add in the sake and repeat. Let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
3. In a preheated frying pan, add in the panko and vegetable oil and stir fry it on low to medium heat. It will look like this at first.
4. Keep stirring with a spatula evenly until it turns golden brown. Transfer to a plate and let it cool.
5. Add mayonnaise to the chicken. Coat both sides with Step 3 and arrange it like so on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
6. Bake at 220℃ for 20-25 minutes. We have a gas stove so I bake for 20 minutes. If you have an electric oven, I think you should bake it for a bit longer.
