Sharing Some Local Favorites - Chicken Katsu

Unless otherwise noted, the Local favorites are recipes from Aloha World and shared by my friend Layla.

Easy Chicken Katsu

6-8 pieces boneless Chicken thighs(for a healthier recipe, use boneless/skinless thighs)
2 large Eggs
1 C Flour
1 1/2 C Panko bread crumbs Garlic salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 tsp ajinomoto (optional)
Oil for frying
Dipping Sauce:
3 Tbps Ketchup
1 Tbps mayonnaise
1-2 Tbps Worchestershire sauce
1 tsp Shoyu
1-3 tsp Tabasco to taste

Cooking Instructions:
Heat about a 1/2 inch of oil in a large pan on medium temperature. In a medium sized bowl, mix flour, garlic salt, pepper and ajinomoto(optional). In a separate bowl, beat eggs and add salt and pepper, set aside. In a third, shallow bowl or plate, place Panko. Dredge thighs in flour to evenly coat the thigh. After coated, dip coated thigh in the egg wash, then into the panko, making sure that all of the chicken is coated. Repeat with all of the thighs. Carefully place coated chicken in heated oil, turn when panko turns a golden brown (about 5-7 minutes per side). After chicken is cooked, drain on paper towels and season with salt.
