Chicken Katsu – the easy way

Carole's Chatter: Chicken Katsu

I have started dabbling with some Japanese flavours – and this Chicken Katsu was a first toe in the water.

The only specialist ingredient needed is some Tonkatsu sauce – which I found at my local store.  It also is good if you have Japanese mayo as well but ordinary would be just fine.


Frozen chicken tenders (crumbed)
Tonkatsu sauce
Parsley/tomatoes for garnish


This is really simple.  Just bake the chicken in accordance with the instructions on the box.

Slice the tenders and then drizzle going one way with Tonkatsu sauce and the other with mayonnaise.  Mine didn't come out as pretty as I aimed for – I think I need to get some little squeezy bottles so I can do thin lines.

Garnish and you're done.


  1. That would be a quick, easy appetizer.

  2. Japanese sauces have a lot of potential!

  3. That's quick! I don't have any squeeze bottles either, but I always think about getting them so I can get all fancy with the drizzled sauce.
