    yettobeseen's Note:

    This is a simple recipe of a dish that is widely popular at local restaurants in Hawaii. The key component of this dish is the sauce, which could be bought at an Oriental Foods store as tonkatsu (pork cutlet) sauce. But I have included a recipe for it here. I searched over years to find a recipe for the sauce, then finally modified one to match what can be found in Hawaii. I think its perfect now, so I hope you like it. The sauce is best if made a few hours in advance and refrigerated. If you can't get the panko flakes, you can just use flour or some other breading, but it won't be as crispy.

      Lucky I live Hawaii. I have easy access to tonkatsu sauce. This is the sauce recipe from "Hawaii's Best Local Dishes" Katsu sauce: Combine 1/3 cup catsup, 1/4 cup shoyu, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, and a pinch of Ground red pepper. I also cheat and go the easy route by combining equal parts catsup and oyseter sauce or I use Vietnamese Sweet chili sauce instead. (You can probably find this in the oriental section of the grocery or chinatown.

      I lived in hawaii for 3 yrs and this recipe reminded me of L&L drive in. Just remember to have thin filet of chicken and dont be shy on panko. Also i felt that the recipe had a little to much ground clove. However, I didn't have precise means of measurement to insure if thats the case.

      Very good chicken. We did not care for the sauce but I loved the sauce recipe suggested by Amy in Hawaii. DH and DD like it with Ponzu sauce. I deep fried it and I served it with rice and green beans dressed with the Ponzu and a little oil. Very good. I will be making this again. I think this would also be very nice with shrimp and actually remember my brother getting something similar at a Japanese restaurant when we were kids. Thanks for posting. UPDATE: I ate this cold for lunch with Amy's sauce and it was wonderful. This would, therefore, be a great dish to take on a picnic or for lunch. Just make it the night b4 and your ready to go.
