Tred this out last night, sorry no photo! I was too hungry!!Very simple to prepare, I made some ever-so slight adjustments - the most significant was that I'm allergic to garlic and so added some onion powder for an extra kick instead. I also recomend mini chicken breast fillets as they're easier to work with, and I used Chicken stock instead of vegetable. Right at the end of cooking I added an extra squirt of honey as I wasn't getting the hit of sweetness I wanted.My wife who is the real expert in the kitchen also thouroughly enjoyed this dish, which will become a regular in our household-14 Jan 2015

Really love this recipe, made it quite a few times now! Definitely stands up to a wagamama katsu curry! A lot easier than the other recipes, definitely recommend this! I added a tiny bit of cornflour just to thicken it up!-31 May 2016

Best meal I've cooked in ages! Took slightly longer to prep but really nice flavour and fairly easy. Will be making again and again!-02 Jul 2017

Healthy Chicken Katsu Curry

Learn how to make Healthy Chicken Katsu from scratch with this paleo and gluten-free spin on the traditional Japanese curry recipe. A hearty, mildly spicy chicken dinner that can be served with rice or low carb with cauliflower rice.


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 75g (2½oz) plain flour
  • 150g (5oz) breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 300g (10½oz) basmati rice
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely copped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 50g (1¾oz) smooth peanut butter
  • 400ml (14fl oz) chicken stock
  • 5 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced


Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan/350°F/Gas 4). Line a baking tray with baking parchment.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Put the beaten eggs in one bowl, the flour in another bowl and the breadcrumbs in a third bowl. Season the flour with salt, pepper, the turmeric and 1 tsp curry powder.

Dip the chicken into the flour, then the egg and then the breadcrumbs. Repeat the process if you need to, to ensure that the chicken is thoroughly coated. Put the chicken onto the lined baking tray, drizzle over the vegetable oil and bake for 25 minutes until cooked.

Pour the rice into a measuring jug to find its volume, then place in a saucepan with 1½ times the amount of water. Add a pinch of salt. Cover with a lid and simmer until all the water has gone. Leave to stand for 10 minutes with the lid on. Use a fork to fluff the grains.

For the sauce, heat the rapeseed oil in a pan over a medium heat, add the onion and carrot and cook for 4–5 minutes until soft but not coloured. Add the garlic, curry powder and garam masala and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and stock and simmer gently for 2 minutes, stirring to make sure the peanut butter has dissolved. Remove from the heat and blend to a smooth sauce with a stick blender.

Put the rice into small bowls and pack it down. Slice the chicken and add it to the bowls with the sauce, spring onions and chilli.

Chicken Katsu Curry

Curry is one of Japan's favourite dishes and chicken katsu actually refers to the fried chicken element (we've baked ours instead). This chicken katsu curry is Japanese-inspired, more aligned with the katsu curry that's familiar to many in the UK.

Our katsu curry sauce uses coconut milk, chicken stock, soy sauce and curry powder. A simple take on everyone&rsquos favourite restaurant or takeaway dish.

large carrot, peeled and finely chopped

cm piece ginger, peeled and finely grated

skinless, boneless chicken thighs

Stir-fried vegetables or salad

  1. To make the sauce, heat the oil in a large saucepan on medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and carrot and cook, stirring, until softened, 6-8 minutes. Once softened, add the garlic, ginger, curry powder, turmeric and flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, until aromatic, lowering the heat if needed. Add the coconut milk, stock, soy sauce and honey. Bring to a simmer then lower the heat and cook until thickened and the flavour has intensified, 15-20 minutes, stirring regularly. Taste and add more soy or honey if you like.
  2. Preheat your oven to 220ºC (200º fan) and line 2 large shallow baking trays with foil. Pop the flour onto one plate and season with salt and pepper. Add the beaten egg to another plate then the panko to a third plate. Working one at a time, coat a chicken thigh all over in the flour then into the egg and finally into the panko breadcrumbs. Transfer to a lined baking tray and repeat with the remaining chicken. Drizzle the oil over the breaded chicken then season with salt and pepper. Bake the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, 30-35 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the rice. Rinse the rice in a sieve until the water runs clear then pop into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Add the water and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to the boil with the lid on then reduce the heat to its lowest setting and cook for 10-15 minutes, until all the water is absorbed. Once absorbed, set aside with the lid on until ready to serve.
  4. If you prefer the katsu sauce to be smooth you can use a handheld liquidiser to blend it until smooth. When everything else is nearly ready, reheat the katsu sauce. Slice the chicken pieces into strips then divide between plates with the rice and sauce. Serve with lime wedges and stir-fried vegetables or salad, if you like.

If you want to make it even more simple you could use shop-bought breaded chicken breasts instead.

Before you jump to Chicken Katsu Curry recipe, you may want to read this short interesting healthy tips about Easy Ways to Get Healthy.

Everyone knows that in order to truly be healthy you need to eat a naturally healthy and balanced diet and get a proper amount of exercise. Unfortunately, we do not always have the time or the power that this type of lifestyle involves. When our work day is finished, most people do not want to go to the gym. We want a tasty, greasy burger, not an equally delightful salad (unless we’re vegetarians). The good news is that making healthy decisions doesn’t have to be a pain. With training you can get all of the nutrients and the exercise that you need. Here are some hints to be as healthy as possible.

Climb stairs. Rather than riding an elevator, take the stairs to the floor you live or work on. While this will be hard to do if you live on or if your job is on a super high level floor in a skyscraper, taking the stairs to a home or office on, say, the fifth floor is completely do-able. If you do work on a very high floor, why not get off the elevator a couple of floors earlier and walk the rest of the way? So many people choose the elevator over climbing even a single flight of stairs. Even just a single flight of stairs, when travelled up or down a few times a day–can be a great improvement to your system.

There are plenty of things you can do to become healthy. Not all of them require fancy gym memberships or limited diets. You can do little things every day to improve upon your health and lose weight. Being smart about the decisions you make each day is a start. Trying to get in as much physical activity as possible is another. The numbers on the scale aren’t the only signal of your health levels. You want your body to be strong too.

Chicken Katsu Curry

1. Start by rinsing the rice in a sieve to remove the excess starches. Add to a medium saucepan with a 1:2 ratio of rice to water. Set timer according to the packet time, mine was 18M.

2. Roughly dice the onion and add it to a non-stick frying pan with a tbsp of coconut oil on a low/medium heat. Also throw in the roughly chopped carrot at this stage as well. Season with a pinch of salt and gently fry for around 7 minutes.

3. After this time, add the minced garlic, curry powder, grated ginger, turmeric, honey, soy sauce and flour with a splash of the chicken stock. Gently fry for another minute before gradually adding all of the chicken stock. Reduce to a simmer and set the timer for 20M.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the chicken by slicing the 3 breasts along the width to create 6 thin chicken pieces. Start the crispy chicken conveyor belt by rolling it in flour, then the beaten egg and finally in the breadcrumbs.

5. Add the chicken breasts to a large baking tray & drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil over them. Pop in the oven, timer set to 12M to rotate and cook for a further 12M on the other side.

6. The katsu sauce should have thickened at this stage so you can either serve it with the chunky bits in it, or use a sieve to remove the chunky bits for a smooth sauce (that’s what I went for). Slice the chicken diagonally for that wagamama look & serve up with a portion of rice, a ladle of the sauce and the optional garnishes, cucumber, spring onion & chilli flake

Recipe Tips

  • As I mentioned earlier, instead of deep frying we are air frying our chicken, so what breadcrumbs we use are very important to the success of this recipe. Panko breadcrumbs are absolutely number one choice if you want a crispy coating to your food because they have a drier and flakier texture. They also absorb less oil, which is another reason why they stay crispier.
  • Chicken cutlets are dunked in flour, beaten egg and lastly, in Panko breadcrumbs in the order listed and shown in the photo below.
  • Something to watch out for is the seasoning of the flour. I used salt and black pepper. Although doesn&rsquot seem like a big deal, they are essential to keeping this chicken far away from bland.

Friday Fakeaway: Katsu chicken curry with Asian slaw

For this week’s Friday Fakeaway, we head to Japan to bring you this amazing chicken katsu curry with Asian slaw. Kitchen manager at Aberdeen’s Ferryhill House Hotel, Chris Jappy, has shared his recipe with us.

A fragrant, curry dish with a smooth sauce, the katsu curry is the perfect Japanese meal to serve your friends and family.

Featuring an array of flavoursome ingredients, this dish is homely but packed full of flavour all at the same time.

Invented in a Tokyo restaurant, Rengatei, in 1899, it was first cooked with a pork katsuretsu (cutlet).

Originally considered a type of yoshoku (a Japanese version of European cuisine) the dish was referred to as katsuretsu or simply katsu.

Also known as panko chicken due to the breadcrumbs used, it is a traditional favourite in Japan.

Chicken Katsu with Curry Sauce

Melt the butter in a sauté pan, add the flour and with a wooden spoon constantly stir over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes to cook out the flour. Add the vegetables. Cook for 4-5 minutes until they have softened and lightly caramelised, then whisking in the stock, little by little until thick and glossy. Add the spices and cook for a further minute then add the soy, sugar and vinegar and mix through.

Line up the chicken between two pieces of baking paper. With a meat mallet or a rolling pin, pound to tenderise and flatten. Place the flour in a shallow bowl. In another lightly beat the eggs with a little water and a pinch of salt. In the third bowl add the crumbs. Lightly flour each piece of chicken, dip in the egg wash, shake excess off then coat in the breadcrumbs.

Heat oil in a large pan and fry chicken katsu for 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain excess oil on a tray lined with a rack.

Slice chicken into three pieces and serve with rice and a generous spoonful of curry sauce and a few pickles.
