A must try recipe at home!

Writer: Rahmania Radjadi (www.rahmaniaradjadi.com)

This recipe is one of those easy recipe that I often make at home. I could say that this recipe has included in my “lazy day” cooking list.

Chicken is one of the world most common and popular meat. I believe in every country, they have their own way on how to cook chicken or how to make chicken based foods. Fried chickens, satays, chicken curry, chicken soups, chicken kebabs, grilled chickens, you name it! The texture that chicken has on it’s meat makes chicken easy to be cooked in many ways.

In Japan alone you can find so many meals using chicken such as tori karaage, tori katsu, yakitori, chicken gyoza, chicken ramen, tori teriyaki, and many more. If you are living in Japan, you know that tori katsu (鶏カツ) is a common favorite home cooking food. Japanese make this meal at home, school, and even you can find a cooked one at convenient stores complete with the rice and salad.

I make a little bit of a tweak on this recipe which make the result more delicious.

tori katsu plate


  • 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 and 1/2 cm long of ginger
  • 1 table spoon of paprika powder
  • 1 table spoon of ground coriander
  • soy sauce
  • apple juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • 5 cups of cooking oil

Sauce ingredients

  • ketchup
  • soy sauce

Cooking instruction

  1. Cut each of the breast in to 2 piece of meat by using the butterfly cut technique, so that you will have 4 pieces of chicken breast
  2. Grate 3 garlic cloves into garlic paste
  3. Peel the ginger and grate it into paste
  4. In a bowl, mix the grated garlic and ginger with paprika powder, ground coriander, soy sauce, and apple juice. Mixed them well
  5. Coated the chicken breasts with the mixture and let it sit for about 2 hours in minimum
    . Crack both egg in a bowl that large enough to deep the chicken breasts and whisk it
  6. Pour flour and bread crumbs each in a plate
  7. Heat the cooking oil in a pot, so it will be ready to fry the chicken
  8. After 2 hours, get the chicken breast pieces and use these following step which is coat the breast with flour, then deep into the whisked egg, then coated them with the bread crumbs. Do this step with the chicken breast by one by one.
  9. Deep fry the chicken breasts until it changed into a golden color
  10. Your tori katsu is ready to serve!

Usually people don’t marinate the chicken breast like I did, they only use garlic powder and salt for the chicken. If you think that you don’t want to marinate your chicken first, you can jump to step number 4 but do sprinkle the chicken with a pinch of salt and a pinch of garlic powder first.

You should try this at home, I hope you enjoy the recipe!
