Chicken Katsu is often found on most Japanese, Hawaiian and Korean restaurant menus. These delectable deep fried chicken pieces with a side of dipping sauce We love chicken Katsu served on a bed of cabbage slices and placed next to a scoop of rice and Macaroni salad.

Shoyu is a soy sauce.
Ajinomoto is monosodium glutamate.

The chicken is so moist and tender inside, yet crunchy and crispy on the outside. This would go great with stir-fried veggies and basmati rice. I can't wait to make this dish again! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
