    Ridgely's Note:

    We just tried this recipe last week from Fine Cooking Magazine. I love the crispness the panko bread crumbs give the chicken and the tonkatsu sauce is a nice tangy sauce that goes great with the chicken.

    Tonkatsu sauce


    1. 1
      With a sharp knife, lightly score both sides of the chicken breasts in a checkerboard pattern.
    2. 2
      Lay a sheet of plastic wrap over the breasts and pound until they are about ½ inch thick.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Dredge the chicken in the flour and then dip it in the beaten eggs, shaking to remove excess.
    5. 5
      Dip each piece in the flour and egg again an then coat the chicken in the panko.
    6. 6
      In a deep, straight sided sauté pan, heat about ¼ inch vegetable oil over medium high heat until the oil ripples and simmers in the pan and instantly erupts into lots of bubbles when you dip a corner of the chicken breast into it.
    7. 7
      Immediately reduce the heat to medium low and fry the chicken in batches until cooked through and golden on both sides, 4 to 6 minutes per side.
    8. 8
      If the oil seems to cool down to much during frying, increase the heat a little to maintain a steady bubbling action.
    9. 9
      Drain the chicken on paper towels and serve it with abundant shredded cabbage and tonkatsu sauce.
    10. 10
      tonkatsu sauce: In a small saucepan, whisk together the Worcestershire, sugar, soy sauce and ketchup.
    11. 11
      Bring to a simmer over medium low heat.
    12. 12
      Reduce the heat to gentle simmer and whisk often until reduced to 1 cup, about 10 minutes.
    13. 13
      Whisk in mustard and allspice.
    14. 14
      Cool to room temperature.
    15. 15
      The sauce will keep for 1 week in the refrigerator.

      Simple, easy, delicious. I just love cooking with Panko, and you are right about the tanginess of the sauce. The chicken breasts didn't take very long to cook - more like 3 minutes a side, but then they may have been smaller than you used. Thanks for posting.

      Delicious and, btw, is this comment font big enough? Would it be easier to read IF I WROTE IN CAPITALS? DELICIOUS!
