To Make Chicken

Step 1

Cut off the tenderloin and the narrow end of the chicken breasts. Then slice the thicker pieces of the breast horizontally through the middle.

Step 2

Place a piece of parchment paper over the chicken pieces and use a meat mallet to flatten them slightly. 

Step 3

Season the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder on both sides.

Step 4

Set up a breeding station with three shallow bowls. Place the flour in one bowl, the beaten eggs in another, and the breadcrumbs in the third bowl.

Step 5

Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, shaking off any excess. 

Step 6

Dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. 

Step 7

Finally, coat the chicken in the breadcrumbs, pressing lightly to ensure they adhere well.

Step 8

Pan-fry the chicken in a thin layer of oil over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. 

Step 9

Thinly shred the cabbage. Drizzle vinegar, salt, sugar and mayonnaise.

Step 10

Toast the burger buns. You can lightly toast them in a toaster or butter the insides and toast them in a skillet for extra flavor and texture.

Step 11

Take the bottom half of a bun and spread a generous amount of the curry-spiced sauce on it.

Step 12

Spoon a generous amount of coleslaw to provide a refreshing contrast and add some texture to the burger.

Step 13

Place a piece of crispy katsu chicken on top with more katsu sauce.

Step 14

Top with fresh fried shallots.

Step 15

Top with fresh cilantro leaves. 

Step 16

You can add additional toppings such as lettuce leaves, tomato slices or even extra pickles.
