Chicken Katsu with Ginger Rice

Total Time:
35 min
25 min
10 min

4 servings

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 chicken cutlets (4 to 5 ounces each)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced peeled ginger
  • 3 heads baby bok choy (about 12 ounces), trimmed and chopped
  • 3 cups cooked white rice, cooled
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Katsu sauce, for serving
  • Put the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in 3 separate shallow bowls. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; dredge each cutlet in the flour, dip in the egg, letting the excess drip off, then dredge in the breadcrumbs until evenly coated. Transfer to a plate.

  • Heat 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until golden on the other side, about 3 more minutes. Remove the chicken to a rack set on a baking sheet to drain; season with salt.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil in another large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add the bok choy; season with salt and cook, stirring, until the bok choy is wilted, about 1 minute. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir in the scallions; season with salt. Serve the chicken with the rice and katsu sauce.
