For The Chicken Katsu

  • Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  • Cut the chicken breasts into a butterfly cut (this will allow the chicken to cook through faster in the oil).
  • Prepare the flour, beaten egg and panko breadcrumbs on three separate plates. Then coat the chicken breasts in flour, dip in the beaten egg and cover in panko breadcrumbs.
  • Lightly coat the breaded chicken breasts slices in olive oil and arrange on a baking tray.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 mins until the panko breadcrumbs on one side turn a nice golden brown colour. Turn over and bake for another few minutes.
  • Remove from the oven when the coating is fully golden and crisp and the chicken is cooked all the way through, and set aside.

To Build Your Katsu Burgers

  • Add a spoonfuls of curry sauce, lettuce leaf and sliced radish to the base of each brioche bun
  • Add the katsu chicken cutlet to each bun (slice if you prefer).
  • Finish with more curry sauce, lettuce leaf and sliced radish (to suit your taste) and the top of the brioche bun. Enjoy!

To Serve

  • You can serve the burgers Japanese style with freshly steamed rice and vegetables or in a bun with salad and fries. I love to serve alongside my Sweet Potato Fries with a wasabi mayo.


This recipe is based off my Chicken Katsu Curry From Scratch recipe – it was years in the making, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
However, if you don’t fancy preparing the dish from scratch the Fused Katsu Curry Meal Kit is the perfect option for you.
