I used to go to L&L Hawaiian Barbecue all the time when I lived in Las Vegas, but since I have moved out of state to a small town there isn't any L&L's here. There is not much of anything to be honest. so I was craving Chicken Katsu and wanted to try and make it here at home to best match the chicken katsu from L&L that my husband and I love. I found this hidden recipe online (was not easy to find) and is now one of my favorites to make here at home! I can easily make this here at home and don't have to drive 150 some miles south just to have some delicious chicken katsu!

***The sauce is so delicious, you just HAVE to serve it with the chicken!***

ENJOY!

Ingredients

2 large
eggs
3/4 c
cornstarch
1/4 tsp
ground pepper
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
1 c
water
15 - 20, 4 lb
chicken thighs, boneless & skinless
1 lb
panko bread crumbs
KATSU SAUCE
1/2 c
worcestershire sauce
1 c
ketchup
1 c
sugar
2 1/2 c
water
1/3 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp
ground pepper
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
2-3 dash(es)
tabasco sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make sauce: Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch dissolved in water to thicken. Chill and serve. **I would always make the sauce first to chill for a few hours before the chicken was ready (the sauce thickens in the refrigerator)***
2
Open the chicken thighs and flatten. In a bowl, combine eggs, cornstarch, pepper, garlic powder, and water. In a separate bowl pour in your panko bread crumbs. First dip the chicken in the egg batter to coat, then dip chicken in the panko bread crumbs. Fry in oil (maximum 325 degrees) until brown and crispy.
3
Cut chicken into strips and serve with sauce. Serve with a few scoops of hot, sticky, white rice and a scoop of macaroni salad for a true plate lunch special like L&L Hawaiian Barbecue! Serves 7-10.

Think their may be a typo on the sauce. Your liquids total 5 cups, and no cornstarch mentioned. Is this correct? Would love to try the recipe. Help! Thanks! Looks delish!

How much cornstarch is needed to mix with the 2 1/2 cups of water for the sauce?

my son moved from Hawai'i to Oklahoma & he loves Chicken Katsu. The last time he was home was in 2008 & the 1st restaurant he would visit is L&L drive inn to eat chicken Katsu, they don't have L&L in Enid, OK so I'm sending him panko to cook his own chicken Katsu. I'll let you know how it came out. I'm hoping the rest of the ingredients can be purchased locally, Mahalo for sharing your recipe--I'm planning to try it myself! Berny from Mākaha, Hawai'i
