Crispy Chicken Katsu Bowls

09 May 2022

I made these bowls a couple weeks ago and really loved it! The chicken was crispy and fun, I loved the edamame touch and the cucumber really set it off for me! It wasn't too hard and packed and interesting punch. 

You know I'm a huge Half Baked Harvest fan over here and this recipe was terrific! It made plenty and I enjoyed a bowl left over the next day! 

2/3 cup, plus 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons grated ginger
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 teaspoon, plus 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
4 chicken cutlets, or 2 boneless chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally
1 cup Panko
chili flakes
1 bag frozen shelled edamame
3-4 cups rice, cooked
cucumber, avocado, pickled ginger, and nori sheets – for serving

Spicy Mayo
1/3 cup olive oil mayo
1 to 2 tablespoons sriracha
2 teaspoons soy sauce or tamari
1 teaspoon honey

1. In a medium bowl, combine 2/3 cup tamari/soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, ginger, green onion, 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, and chili flakes.

2. Place the chicken in a bowl and pour over 3-4 tablespoons of the sauce, save the rest for serving. Let the chicken sit 10 minutes.

3. Place the Panko and 3 tablespoons sesame seeds in a shallow bowl. Dredge both sides of the chicken through the Panko, pressing to adhere by using your fist to pound the crumbs in. Place the chicken on a plate.

4. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board.

5. Add the edamame to the skillet, cook until thawed, then add 2 tablespoons tamari/soy sauce. Cook another minute, then remove from the heat.

6. To make the Spicy Mayo, combine all ingredients in a small bowl.

7. To assemble, slice the chicken into thin strips. Add the rice to bowls, top with cucumber, avocado, chicken, pickled ginger, green onions, and nori. Spoon over the spicy mayo and the reserved tamari/soy sauce.
